The Least Of My Worries

I’m writing this during our drive home from dropping the kids off with their grandparents (man I love being able to blog from my android phone). We made it through the holidays unscathed and for the most part, had a wonderful time.
I was totally spoiled this year by both of my loves, and by the kiddos. Jack got me this awesome dehydrator so that I can make beef jerky and dried meals for backpacking. I can’t wait to try it! Aiden got me a water purifying UV pen and a lightweight collapsing fishing rod for backpacking as well. Plus a super cuddly hoodie. Santa brought me a lovely gift box from Lush and a 24 pack of multi-colored Sharpie markers. I also got some other hiking stuff, a movie, and some beautiful things for around the house (candle holders and photo frames). I am such a lucky girl.
Supper was delicious, and mostly stress-free. After we ate we all played board games and Munchkin until it was quite late.
We went to my mum’s yesterday to visit everyone. She got me a Wii Fit for Christmas, which I am really excited about! She made us turducken, which was really tummy, and I had a great visit with my siblings and family. We played some great games and laughed until we could hardly breathe. My aunt and my sister and I stayed up into the wee hours, drinking and giggling and telling stories. I am so fortunate to have such great women in my life.
Today we relaxed and watched movies until it was time to leave. I will be going back with the kids after New Years for a longer visit, which I look forward to.
Speaking of New Years, we still have a big party to pull off, but I can’t wait!
2010 is coming to a close but it’s been a lovely ending to a great year. Wonder what 2011 will bring?
