The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas!  Pat and my friend, Tyler, came to visit for Christmas.  The day was spent at home, wine, champagne, and cooking in the kitchen.  I made a Thanksgiving feast for Christmas since we’re not pork eaters.  It was delicious, but I think I might try to take on Prime Rib next year.  Maybe.  Probably not.  But maybe.  
I couldn’t find the charger for my Canon Rebel, so most of my photos were from my iPad.  Which by the way was new.  Translation: Mommy finally got her own (new and shiny) iPad, and Damian officially has his own iPad.  My first iPad was practically his anyway.  It was filled with learning apps and books for him.  Oh yeah, and the fact that he wouldn’t let me touch it.  Kids these days.
The coconut loved his gifts!  It was a soon-to-be 3 year old’s heaven.  His birthday is tomorrow and he’s gonna be stoked.  We’re taking him to Disney On Ice at TD Garden this weekend.  I think I’m more excited than he is.  Until he sees his favorite characters in person.  We all know he’s going to freak – in a good way.  

We definitely rocked onesies.  Don’t judge.  Tip for you: don’t sleep in it.  I got the worst wedgie.  Ever.

Check out my little pirate! He insisted on wearing his Jake costume for Christmas

MUAH

Damian loves his Uncle Tyler

Look at this sexy beast of a machine!  Pat and his family chipped in to get me the big Kahuna instead of the smaller one I was looking at.  Squeal!   I am so excited to own a Kitchen Aid mixer.  Now if only I could find the space to store it.  Meh, details.  Who cares.  It is going to be well used.  I have to say this machine is my most prized kitchen possession with my Vitamix.  This foodie is set up.
The hubs got an Xbox 360 with Kinect – he’s a little behind the gaming – and luckily it was a win!  He isn’t a huge gamer, but I’m sure that’s about to change.  He joked that I’m going to regret getting it for him.  I think he just divorced me and married his Xbox.  
Pat and Uncle Tyler have been playing Madden for the past few hours.  You better believe I’m getting some fitness games for Kinect.  I haven’t been this fat since I was pregnant.  I have been indulging a little too much.   Okay, a lot.  
Any suggestions for some fun and effective fitness games for Kinect?

    I’m jealous of your Kitchen Aid mixer!!! That’s what I want for Xmas! But first, I must find a pretty house to fit it in ;-)
    Hooray for the Kinect, hubby is a total gamer and I’d say you should buy the Dance Central Games! They will be fun for you and your coconut!
    If you enjoy dancing, they even tell you the calorie count!

    And no girly, we are not fatties, we are just total foodies…lol… I’m starting to train for my first half-marathon. Save me!

    Definitely go for the prime rib next year. It is not that hard and sooo yummy! It’s what we’ve had for Christmas dinner since I was a kid.
