31 day Christmas challenge – Day 26: how was your Christmas?

I had a nice Christmas. The party Friday night was chaotic, but fine. I did buy a table runner, don't worry. My father-in-law made a really good turkey and sausage gumbo and everyone brought booze. I didn't drink because I never do at those things and because someone should be sober. I made bacon wrapped scallops and fried ravioli and rotel dip and a cheesecake. The kids loved playing with their cousins. Saturday morning my mother-in-law took the kids to breakfast and I made a trifle to bring to her house for the Christmas Eve party. We went to church at three. Service was really nice. Andrew tried to go back to another family after the children's message. All of the cousins sat on one row. After church we went to my mother-in-law's for the party. There was all kinds of food and we played a game called Last Word. Santa came to the house and the kids sang a song for him. It was a lot of fun. We came home, I played Santa (I love that), but I lost a wii game that I bought for the kids. I tend to forget where I've hidden stuff prior to Christmas, even though I thought I put everything in the china cabinet this year. Yesterday we stayed home and watched movies and the kids played with their new toys. We hardly heard a peep from them all day – it was fantastic. All in all, it was a nice weekend and I enjoyed the time spent with family and seeing the kids sing and having fun.
