I'll Be Home for Christmas...

Monday, December 27, 2010 - 
Hubs and I made our trek to Green Bay, Wisconsin to see family for Christmas.  It was great to go on social media hiatus for a bit (though I did miss all of you) and spend every minute with family.  It was a "long" weekend, but it went by very quickly as the two full days were both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, thus we spent every minute with our families.  But it was fantastic to see everyone, and I loved every minute of it. 

We spent Christmas Eve with my family and ate a lot of great food, including prime rib, roasted Brussels sprouts and corn, creamy bleu potatoes and other delicious sides.  And of course, we drank some merry concoctions of peppermint martini's (peppermint schnapps, whipped vodka and Bailey's) as well as Creamsicle martini's (whipped vodka with orange juice) and of course, Manhattan's, Old Fashion's and wine.

Christmas Day was spent with Tim's family.  We were able to spend sometime with our darling nephews, including our two week old nephew who we met for the first time, nieces, and both Tim's immediate family and their significant others and his extended family of aunts and uncles.  Socializing over lunch of prime rib, roasted chicken, baked ham, mashed potatoes, dressing, dumplings and little nibbles of candies and apps, we had a great time (and of course, watched the Disney parade!) watching all the children open their presents.  The smiles are priceless!

We left early on Sunday to dodge holiday traffic in Chicago and ended up making it back to Indy in great time.  We even managed to catch the Packer game over our "we just visited Wisconsin" dinner (it seems as though every evening we get back from Wisconsin, we ended up having a dinner of cheese, beef sticks and beer - I am not complaining, just sayin').  It was a great long weekend, but I'm excited to be back home and have the week off.  Unfortunately, hubs does have to work four days this week, but in that time span, I plan on cooking and organizing to my hearts content.  And of course, watching Netflix.

How was your holiday?
