The recap~

Christmas Eve~
Lobster, steak, antipasto, bacon wrapped asparagus and Claudia's potatoes au gratin. (awesome!)
 The kids made a mess of the living room. 
 I had a trio hug with Lindsay and my MIL
 Cocoa waited for a long time….but did not receive any steak. She did get a lot of hugs though. 
Christmas Day~
Lolo got a shark hoodie, which really looks more like cookie monster. 
Ozzie did not get a hoodie;  he doesn't even know what a hoodie is. He'd love some steak though. 
 Linds got a longboard. (college transportation)
 The girls got weird/cute/weird/cute fuzzy sweaters.
Seriously, they are so weird they are cute. 
 Cocoa does not approve of the long board. 
 Cocoa REALLY does not approve of the longboard. 
All in all…our Christmas was more than we could have asked for. 
We are a lucky group of people. 

After all this goodness…we then celebrated Lindsay's 18th bday. 


It's a tough job living the dream….but I'm up for it!

  3. And she (and Ozzie!) totally needed a piece of steak!

  4. Happy to hear you had such a great time with the family! The food looks delicious - can't believe you didn't let the doggies have a little steak. ;-) Our dogs got bones as Christmas treats and have literally been throwing them around the house. :-) Hope you have a wonderful new year's eve and an even better new year!

  5. FUN at your house !
    Oh and sure rub it in LOBSTER/steak on CHristmas Eve , hey we live in New England and we didn't get lobster on Christmas Eve ! lol

  7. Oh my word!

    I can not believe you didn't give Ozzie some steak. Sometimes I think someone peed in your wheaties every single day of the year. Seriously.
    Give the dog some steak.

    Suz, wishing you and your family a joyful, loving, healthy 2014! Many thanks for your blog and sense of humor...I can't take a drink of coffee while reading it, for fear of laugh-snorting it out my nose!

    Also, it helps to know another mother out in blogland whose little girl has suddenly grown up so fast!

  16. I know we just had our first grandchild almost 18 months ago - - and our girls are in the third generation of life - - - but when did the term change from skate board to long board?!! You all had great celebrations for the Christmas holidays. So glad everyone was healthy enough to enjoy them!!!
