Post Christmas Slump

What the heck....does anyone hate it when Christmas is over? Thanksgiving is like the best day ever...you eat tons of food and get to be with family...maybe catch a flick or two...enjoy the time off work AND start the Christmas season! Christmas music is bumpin', snow is fallin', friends are callin', & the food is the bomb. It's the day after Christmas that the "feeling in the air" is gone & you're back to the everyday rustics. Well, all I have to say is I miss that Christmas magic in the air. However, I had one of the BEST Christmas seasons of my life! It's funny how that "special someone" can change the feel of the season....oh how I love Sini! Ok ok ok...I know enough of the lovey dovey stuff. Guys, we had so much fun this December! How were your Christmases? I wanna hear about them....I love reading your blogs & seeing what fun traditions you have & the fun acitivities you participated in! Christmas day was super fun! I don't know about you all but I was so happy we got so much snow...one of the reasons was b/c I was with my family & we were at home with a cozy fire eating lots (I do mean lots) of yummy food & watching movies & playing games!
Here are some photos of our Christmas break!












Our favorite restaurant it The Cheesecake Factory....we go there once a week...it's like an addiction.






















This was one of the nights where the snow was falling but there wasn't any wind blowing so it wasn't really cold. We just walked & walked forever....we got COVERED in snow but it was so fun!
Mikey & I making the fire...well Mikey TRIED to start it...it wasn't until I stepped up & utlized my Young Women's Girl's Camp skills! Then there's Sini trying to get warm by the fire...I just threw him in the snow (that's right folks....he needs to know his role! hahaha...I'm joking...)!
Sini & I had to make a ton of pies for Christmas day (they are the BEST pies...so they are in high demand) & instead of letting me do it by myself...Sini helped me...we had an assembly line...well...it was just me...and Sini (does that count as a line?)...The pies were a hit! Now I'm craving them...great...this always happens!
All in all Christmas time was so much fun! Now it's on to the New Year...into uncharted waters...I'm not goona lie...I'm looking forward to this year. This will be the first year that I actually make resolutions/goals (write them down~according to my brother Manti if you write them down you're more likely to achieve them) & try to accomplish them! I hope everyone had a memorable Holiday Season....blog on!

Yeah, the end of Christmas is kind of a menopausal time, but it doesn't really hit me until after New Year when we have to take down our tree. But, I'm now a big old tchai tea latte soy milk kind of guy.
Mmm. Soy. Because of the lactose. You're lactose intolerant now.
And that was fifty cents back then, sweetie.

Awesome Possum! Your Christmas sound most enjoyable. Gotta admit I am not a CF fan... for some reason I don't like that place as an eatery... as a dessert place it rocks!

And when are you going to be making me one of those pies? Hmmmm?

Also be sure to change your blog for me to the new one :) That's the one that will be updated the most in the '09... or at least that's a goal I have.
