Merry Christmas!

From our sleepy family, to yours.



Maggie wasn’t too bad last night, but she whined for about half an hour before Nick or I got to sleep. She slept for a few hours, and then woke us up again around 2:30 this morning, so Nick took her out to use the bathroom.

She did good, but never really went back to sleep after that.

After 4 poops, she was ready for breakfast :) She is a bundle of energy in the morning…it is going to be hard leaving her at home when we have to go to work.

We ate breakfast – bacon, eggs, homemade sourdough biscuits, and jam + tea and then opened presents. It was a fun time with Harley cuddling Cindy on the couch and Maggie cuddling with Nick in the chair.

After showering and giving both dogs a bath, Nick and I took some little naps with the dogs and Bob decided to take pictures to prove it.



We just finished eating lunch + making tons of sugar cookies and fudge!


We all had turkey sandwiches with the leftover turkey from last night’s dinner and some Martin’s bbq chips – the best bbq chips ever.


I had a sugar cookie star and am now watching the dogs play and Nick’s parents take a nap.




Not sure what’s on the agenda for the rest of the day – probably lots of cookie eating, cutting into that fudge soon, and dinner after the sugar coma :)


Merry Christmas!!! I hope today is filled with joy and love and that the giving spirit continues on into the new year.
