We survived another Christmas

December 29, 2008

We survived!

We survived the 16+ hours in the car (total, not each way).

We survived the usual family dramas which occur.

We survived way too many, and way too large gifts from the families (and I even had a little spot cleared to see out the back window!).

We survived way too much good food and good (very good!) wine.

We even survived my in-laws open floorplan house with no good places to put up gates and a 14 month old who recently learned how much fun climbing and playing with remotes can be.

We even managed to not over-buy gifts for the kids ourselves… and survived. In fact, my daughter, when we were discussing her presents, even said to us, “Wow! I didn’t know I was that good!”

I didn’t either…
