Merry Christmas, my friends! I hope you had a lovely relaxing day, filled with good food, good friends and good times. I know I did!
L and I spent the morning at home, chillin' with Vizzini and doing our presents to each other, then we walked to my ex-sister-in-law's place to hang with Mom, Cindy, Pete, Zoe, Hannah and a bunch of their friends (some very cool people). It was a great time - one of the best Christmases we've ever had.
I had to live up to my wacky-auntie image, so I wore a distinctly elvish outfit.here with the same boots and a black belt, with my drapey black cardi over it. I last wore the cardi belted on the weekend for lunch out, here.
here with my purple sequined skirt.
If my legs look like watermelons, it's because I'm wearing frog socks!
Cardigan (Kensie), dress (INC), boots (Aldo, consignment), earrings (gift), rings (both Oscar & Libby's), socks (gift from L).
And onto the day! Christmas started with Vizzini waking us up. We usually boot him out of the bedroom so we can sleep, but we did a stocking for him, so we let him hang out.
|"Are you up yet? Feed me!"|
|"Where's my stocking?"|
He spent most of the day flopping about after all the excitement.
|He moves so fast, it's hard to get pictures.|
|"I flop very well."|
I am well-loved and very spoiled - and I give L just as much! He deserves it for putting up with me.
The necklace and pin from him:
the one Lynne sent me!
We got a fun game for starting conversations from our nieces, and my Mom got me some fantastic things. Check it out:
The floral metal thing was hand-made by a friend of Mom's and can be worn as a pin or a necklace pendant - I love the steampunk vibe of it. The gold and wood disc necklace is from the Global Village shop and is so cool. Mom knows my taste well!
Did you figure out the wooden box?
Vizzini is exhausted by it all. We've had a lot of play-time with both L and I being home.
I have to share a few pictures from last night. One, the Christmas Moon:
And what Christmas dinner is complete without a skull Santa cake??
|Check out the skeletal "arms" on the serving dish!|
This one is for Ally, who asked us to take pictures of ourselves with a Christmas decoration.
Hope you are all enjoying your time off. From my fam to yours, all the best.
