Holy crap, it's been one hell of a busy holiday!
M and I arrived at my parents' place late on the 23rd after a much delayed flight. Christmas Eve was filled with visits to various friends and family to drop off gifts. On Christmas Day I got up bright and early to go to my sister's house so I could enjoy the insanity of my niece opening up all her presents from Santa, and then I headed back to my folks' place for our own gift opening followed by turkey dinner with all the trimmings. On Boxing Day my parents hosted brunch for some of their friends, and then on the 27th there was a huge extended family gathering at my aunt's place. Finally, since this will be my last visit home before Chalupa Batman's arrival, yesterday my mom threw me a small baby shower attended by some aunts, female cousins and a few friends.
Whew! I'm tired out from just typing that.
Anyway, that's my excuse for not having a chance before now to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. No matter what may or may not be happening in your uterus at this moment, I hope you've had a wonderful holiday surrounded by friends, family, warmth and love. Oh, and cookies. Lots and lots of cookies.
