Christmas Fifth Quarter

The Christmas Holiday has finally passed. I hope everyone reading this had as wonderful a time as we here at Casa del Blanco did. 

Perfect Wife and I had  a nice quiet day, and then the day after, we hosted our annual Christmas party. The guest list included the Fabulous Sisters and their respective spouses, my Wonderful Son, and Perfect Wife's  Perfect Parents. A good time was had by all. At least that's what we were told.

Santa was especially good to us. PW got a new coat and some fancy perfume. We also got the always-nice-to-have gift cards.
Rocco the Wonder Dog got a squeaky squirrel toy, which he has become quite fond of.

I really hit the jackpot present-wise, though. I must have been a really good boy this year! Not only did I get a replica of Doctor Who's TARDIS, for those of you who  are regular readers of this blog and have been wringing your hands with anxiety, relax. I DID get a remote control K9 (which is back-ordered, but I'm told is on its way) AND a Muppet Whatnot Kit. I know this sounds like the gift list of a nine year old, instead of a  grown man, but what can I say?

Upon reflection, Santa is not doing too well on keeping  track of his naughty/nice list.

However, Christmas truly isn't  about what you get. It's about what you already have.The best part of Christmas this year, for me, was spending it with those I love the most. I wouldn't trade that feeling for all the  Doctor Who toys and Muppets in the world.

Well, maybe I  would.

I had a wonderful Christmas as well, but I must say, I'm glad it's over. That's not to say I don't love spending time with family, but the anxiety over getting presents for the kids and hosting parties can be exhausting. I'm looking forward to a nice, quiet New Year's Eve with my wonderful husband. Let's hope 2009 is a better year!

Your blog is amazing. I am so jealous. I have to go delete mine and start all over. Keep up the good work.

It was one of the best ever - everyone together happy and healthy. It's great to remind us all to focus on the important stuff. Here's hoping that 2009 continues to provide us with lots of love, health & smiles - AND lots of great blog entries and drawings!
