Gluttony at its best.

Christmas eve at Casa De Busy Bee. 

Picnik collage christmas eve 2009The Italian feast on Christmas Eve..YUMMY….Antipasto…ravioli w alfredo, lasagna. Desserts out the ying yang. That can be uncomfortable.

With all this food I have ingested…I need a good old fashioned detox.

Christmas day seems to be very quiet around here…and I like it.

We slept in…till around 7:15. And only got up because some pooches were ready to pee on the foliage see what Santa brought them. Well, earlier Cocoa decided at 4:30 am, she would go check out her stocking. Naughty girl!! Lo Linds and dogs Christmas 2009

It was very hot and humid when we woke up Christmas morning…such a bummer about that nonsense.


Pre-present Coffee with the dogs. 





It is so nice when you ask for something and you get it….Like a full color set of sharpies for Lo!!! P1030997

or a snuggie for Linds.


To be honest…I am thinking of investing in one of those snuggie’s for me. (the kids size) it is pretty darn comfy…and the pockets are just the right size for my tv guide and remote vitamins and water bottle.

 There was to be no gifts exchanged for the adults…but Coach broke this rule. I was so mad at him. I yelled, I fussed, I hit him too…but really, I think he enjoyed all of this!! I will show a picture of my gift on Monday (it is B day) yes…I am all a-buzz about it.

If everyone had a Christmas half as nice as mine…well this would be a world full of happy people!!!

Bring on 2010!!!!


  1. Merry Christmas! Your Christmas eve food looks amazing. We eat lutefisk and lefse here...

    And seeing you all in shorts, by the swimming pool, sitting outside??

    We are in a blizzard...have had over 6 inches of snow...wind, warm coats...what a difference!

    Have a great holiday weekend. ~Natalie

  2. Would you believe it was 10:30 before we got started?! Teenagers!

    I have my suspicions about your gift!

  3. I love that you've been changing your header almost daily. So cute! Your Christmas sounds like it was wonderful. I'm so jealous of Lo's Sharpies!! I live for Sharpies! I can't wait to see what Coach got you. Hmmm...what could it be? Another Boxer? I'll just have to wait til Monday.... poop!

  4. Love your Christmas, it looks like so much fun. Those snuggies...I am so curious about them! Them seem to have really taken off while I've been gone. I look forward to your future review!

    Oh, I love markers, too. I brought a big set with me to China. They smell so good! (Bad, I know!) But I love making a big strong mark! Glad I am not the only one.

    Cant wait to hear more about your verboten gift!

  6. eric said there was a domestic disturbance on christmas... i cannot believe he didn't clue me in! hmmm... i can't wait to see what coach gotcha... he is such a good guy. i'm sure it cannot be better than the sharpies though. ooo... i love them! talk to you soon!

  7. Looks like Christmas was a success at your house! I hope you didn't beat Coach up too bad... can't wait to see what you got :)

  8. I know what you got! And I'm soooo jealous. It's a new Blackberry isn't it? Text me!

  9. Sounds perfectly wonderful Suz! Such happiness and joy in just being together. Good for you. Even though we were snowed in and couldn't travel as planned, we had a wonderful day just playing in the snow and being together. Happy Saturday! XX Lori

  10. That big lab reminds me of mine...we had to put him to sleep last Friday :( The saddest part of Christmas was clearning the table and putting the scraps in the compost instead of his bowl.

    Happy new Year my Friend,

  11. Ohhhh the food looks amazing, BB! What a FEAST! And I love all the happy smiling faces! The snuggie, well OK I need one now. NEED.

    I broke the "spending limit" for hubby's gifts by 200%, so he got mad at me and went out to buy me rushed gifts that of course made no sense, LOL!

    He now has a list of things I always enjoy as presents so he'll never be out of sorts again.

    Mens! LOL!

    Merry Holidays!

  12. I'm glad I wasn't eating or drinking when I read about desserts out the you know what... since I would have totally spewed all over the place! LOL

    My girl got a snuggie too... a PINK one! But at least it's cold enough to use it here. No hot humid day for us... it was our first white Chrimstmas in 83 years! : )

    Sounds like you had a great day! Woo hoo.

  13. Looks like a fabulous Christmas. I have to admit I am a wee bit jealous of your pre-present opening coffee around the pool. Hot and humid? We were fighting the freezing rain here! lol

  14. Is your daughter wearing navy blue pj pants with reindeer on them from Old Navy? Because it looks like it.. and i'm wearing the exact pair at this moment :)

    I love all your Christmas photos! So sweet! I love sharpies, so that would have been a fab gift!!

    SO happy your Holiday season is starting out so wonderfuly, hope your new years is just as special!

  15. Pre-present coffee with the dogs by the pool?

    You live the life!

  16. Pre-Present coffee? I can't even imagine my kids approving of such craziness! Maybe when they're older.
    I'm all over that Sharpie business. I love them!
    Merry Christmas, Suz!

  17. Looks like a great christmas Suz! I like Lindsay's snuggy better than mine! (Mine is camoflauge - ugh!!!)

  18. It looks as if you had a wonderful Christmas, even if the weather wasn't very wintry. Thanks for sharing your Christmas with us.

  19. I had to look thru a million posts to find one I did NOT comment on. I think I am too early for your tomorrow post. So I will have to either come back in 34 minutes OR just come back tomorrow.

    I am so glad your Christmas was special. I love your family. I am about to move in. Go open the gate!
