and we pulled it off……….. ; )

with very little prep time we managed to get everything wrapped and under the tree (even in time to watch Jimmy Fallon host SNL!! ) so we could all wake up to what more or less passes as a traditional xmas morning in our house. David broke in our new griddle and made breakfast for everyone, Chelsea put the coffee machine on the blink because she couldn’t wait to push the button so Rich got an early morning trip to Starbucks but eventually we all got down to opening presents and managed to finish just in time for David to get his uniform on and head out to the airport – amazing timing ; )

This afternoon we cleared up a little, I got to read the Sunday paper, we enjoyed another great sunset, made cocktails and in a minute I’m about to sample either my chocolate filled figs or my single malt chocolates………or both! It was hectic but we all felt pretty good about pulling it off with only one days notice that David was headed out of town and wouldn’t make it back before both girls left. Now we get a few days to relax and play with our new stuff before Chelsea and Rich head off to Portland and Taryn to England to further their festivities. It was fun, enjoy the pictures ; )

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
