Santa came to town
I wish you all have a blessed Christmas!
This is one of my favorite “Christmas” songs to listen to. Enjoy…
And I mean that in only the best way possible.
I had every intention of getting up this morning, taking a walk, and blogging, but this young gentleman had other ideas…
Yes, that’s Bond…under the covers aaand on top of my feet…Ah well
Last night I saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I was a little apprehensive because I was afraid they would totally screw it up. Turn out David Fincher does know what he’s doing.
Oh and the opening credits…pretty sick… (I think this goes without saying, but NSFW)
Getting on to the point! Christmas!
I spent Christmas at home in Ohio with just myself, mom and dad and Andrew. We didn’t make it up to Michigan this year, but it was nice to be a small family unit.
Most of the day was spent like this:
I am sooo not joking. Okay, so I changed and put on workout pants and a shirt, but aside from that I looked pretty much like the picture above.
On Christmas we opened presents…
Just imagine the table filled with food and wine, of course.
And just basically chilled around the house. It was just what the doctor ordered seriously!
I am now the proud owner of way to many Christmas cookies, great gifts, and new wiper blades (thanks Dad!).
How was your Christmas??
Yesterday, I was all ready to do a Wordless Wednesday post, but….that didn’t happen. Obviously. So, why not today? It’s only a day off!
During Christmas I took all these great pictures of home and merriment and the such. Guess what happened. My battery died and I left the charger in my other suitcase I thought I was going to bring, but didn’t. Epic fail. About 4 weeks later I finally uploaded the pictures to the computer…
Just a squirrel…
Christmas about a month late! Yay! Oh well, hoped y’all enjoy. I’m off to eat my de.lish.us. Chinese food!
Hello! It’s Wordless Wednesday. I know I haven’t played much in the blog world lately, but I’ve been busy! Really, I have. Busy eating too many Christmas cookies. Busy shopping with money don’t have. Busy just being with family! So enough yappin’…
Actually we got back (we meaning my family and I) from Michigan last night. I’m glad I got to see my Michigan family.
We ate, drank, opened Christmas presents, “skated” on the lake, and all sorts of other fun family things. I would show you all the awesome pictures I took, but guess what?! I can’t find my battery charger and the battery is dead! I swear I packed it; yet it is nowhere to be found. Don’t ya hate that!?
I’m going to look around today at Best Buy and all that to see if I can find a charger that doesn’t cost a bazillion dollars. But until then, I’ll leave you with this…
That would be my brother Andrew, just pondering life.
So, I had a great post that updated y’all on the weekend and such. I came back to finish it up and I just was not feeling it. I think it had to do with the fact that I didn’t really sit down when I got home. First, I made muffins for a staff breakfast, then Leanne and I went to Yoga, but didn’t do Yoga at all. Instead we sat and talked for about 2 hours. Sheesh. After we got back I washed dishes. So, yeah.
So here’s the weekend in pictures…
There was a lot of this
and this, Terrapin’s truffle mac n cheese
Maybe a little of this
The weekend was capped off by watching Christmas Vacation and eating leftovers from Terrapin. A great way to end the weekend and start a 3 day work week.
Without further ado, some of our favorite Christmas Vacation quotes…
“Why is the carpet all wet…Todd? I don’t know….Margo!”
“Hallelujah…Holy Sh*t!…Where’s the Tylenol?”
“Surprised Eddie?… If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”
“Hey Griswold. Where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big? Bend over and I’ll show you. You’ve got a lot of nerve talking to me like that Griswold. [looking at his wife, Margo] I wasn’t talking to you.”
“Is your house on fire, Clark? No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.”

What’s your favorite Christmas movie quote?
Sorry I’ve been absent from the blogging world for a bit! I just wasn’t feeling the draw to write anything.
Something very exciting did happen… It snowed!
If you don’t know, this is very rare for us here at The Beach. So when it does snow basically everybody goes crazy. When the kids saw it snowing they instantly said that school was going to be canceled and we all would go home. Ummm, that didn’t happen, but good try.
Christmas is in full effect now. Today we saw the Christmas program at our school. Very cute. We also have all of our Christmas lights turned on. Score! I’d take a picture, but it is super cold and windy outside, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
But just pretend that it looks like this
It’s like Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation! Which, by the way, is one of my favorite Christmas movies. So here, in no particular order are my favorite Christmas flicks
Dan in Real Life
One Magic Christmas
Charlie Brown Christmas
