I'm sorry I didn't make it on here the week before Christmas to wish all of you a happy holiday.

I hope you feel better - it sounds like there are some mean bugs out there this year.

Christmas Day M@ asked if we could just be the 3 of us as one SIL had invited a bunch of us over (24 in the immediate family; 13 were invited over). We did Christmas at MIL's yesterday with all 24 - M@ got a hookah and tobacco from BIL the priest, and lock picking tools from other BIL - weird, so now you know why he would rather skip these things...yet we have them coming over tomorrow for the annual pizza/ride through our local park decorated with 'a million lights'. Then M@ goes to Chicago to visit his gf from the 29th-3rd and escapes another family gathering on the 1st.

Our day to ourselves was nice - got him to eat well (still very skinny), he enjoyed his gifts (we'd gotten him an iPhone in November because his texting was dying on his phone - he has to pay the monthly fees - his eager agreement) - we also got him some pj bottoms and a new tshirt from his U and a massage - he's not so sure about going to that alone! I got what I chose - a new Coach purse (via ebay), slippers, Panera cookbook, some kitchen gadgets - cool stuff. (not from inlaws - they did weird stuff again for me as well) Wishing it was at least Wednesday...

Does M@ smole hookahs?I know Gabby was the caterpiller in Alice this year for her dance recital and she pretended to smoke one,since she is only 14.They are legal and Hookah bars are common in a lot of college towns.Weird gift,unless he wanted one.We got Gabby a Nook color for her big gift.

Nope; he hates tobacco. BIL just has the habit for the last few years and wants to share the joy with everyone.

OKAAY.The guy who had the hookah saw nothing wrong with Gab smoking it he said he let his 11 year old dd smoke it.Whatever,it was for a dance recitial she could certainly pretend.

My DH would be in heaven if it was just the 3 of us on Christmas! We were snowed in last year for Christmas Eve and Day and he was almost giddy.

We had a white Christmas too and honestly Christmas was the last day we felt good. Nathaniel and I have been down with nasty colds ever since then and he had a fever for several days. Now we are left with sniffles, clogged up ears and anitbiotics. Really a jip on the holiday break!
We had a nice time before that though and my fav. gift is more ram for my computer to make it go faster :)

Hmm, the hookah and tobacco is a rather odd gift.

Wow, the wine chiller and the Kitchen Aid mixer sound fab!
