Christmas Eve

Well, Christmas Eve has come and gone and I don't think I could be much happier at the moment. It was a stupendously wonderful day. I had a great time with the group this morning/afternoon, had some incredible food for dinner with the foreign language department from school, and then teamed up with Derek to whoop Andrew, Jaime, Christense, Yvonne, and Yvonne's mom in Settlers of Catan. Top it off with a stocking stuffed with a gift that somehow made its way into my apartment while I was gone and that all equals a happy Brian. Tomorrow morning all of us at this school will gather for muffins or something like that and open the gifts we've slowly been piling under Angelyn's Christmas tree. Merry Christmas to all, I miss and love you! More tomorrow.

Merry Christmas back! We are leaving shortly for a 5:30 meeting and then it is on to Lundy's cousin's house for Xmas eve feasting and opening white elephant gifts and playing Apples to Apples. Tomorrow we will sleep til ? and then have one of Aunt Beth's great breakfasts -- me, Rob, Lundy, and Beth and then open gifts here. Toby doesn't know it but he is getting a Kong -- you put treats in it and he can chase it around and shake it to get the treats to fall out:) We'll see how it works. Tomorrow night we go to Nana's for supper (lasagne, shrimp, mussels, and I'm not sure what else-- different traditions are definitely different) and opening gifts over there. In between I plan to take a loooong nap:)

Hugs and lots of love
