Quaint Christmas: Days Two and Three of Our Christmas Vacation

Both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were laid back days. Considering that my uncle's weakness from his illness earlier in the year, my brother's kidney stones, and my pregnancy, we weren't in the best shape to go out and party. Instead we stayed in for most of both days.

On Christmas Eve, we decorated the tree...



...ate candy...


...gave Buster lots of love...


...took Buster for a walk and took lots of blurry-on-purpose pictures...




...looked at the Christmas lights...




...and opened gifts!





It was a small, quiet Christmas Eve with few gifts, but it was still good.

On Christmas morning, we crowded around the laptop and showed my mom and uncle a couple of our favorite videos.






I introduced my mom to i can has cheezburger. These were her favorites:



funny pictures

We hung out and took it easy...




...ate an awesome lunch, where I consumed three helpings of my mom's mashed potatoes...



...napped and then later took Buster out for his evening walk...



...and then came back to my uncle's house, where we had a low-key evening of movie watching and interweb surfing.

It was a good Christmas, just the way I wanted it. No muss, no fuss. Incidentally, the muss and fuss came the next day - with a vengeance.
