Usually my favorite day of the year is the day AFTER Christmas. You know, all the pressure is off - nothing to do but chill out and relax. However, this year we had a big family Mexican Fiesta on the day after Christmas. Twas very chaotic and fun, but also tiring! Therefore today, December 27 has been declared a day of rest. (Edit: In Fact, it was SO MUCH a day of rest, that I finished this post on the 28th!)
Since coming up with a facinating post takes too much brain power (and I'm running a little low right now) I shall entertain you with photos instead.
Christmas Day we opened gifts with the family, then rushed off to serve at the Community Christmas Dinner for several hours. The motto? "No one should have to spend Christmas alone!"
My job was to "socialize" and "entertain" the masses. I went from person to person visiting and chatting and listening. I danced in the aisles. I acted very silly and goofy to make people smile. I sang alone and I sang in a group. See, there I am in the elf hat. Hmmmm. I wonder why DoodleBug is giving me that look. Was I singing the wrong words?
Girly-Girl and Silly-Head helped by passing out candycanes and bookmarks to all the guests. I haave no idea who the man is that was guiding Silly-Head, but she thought he was very nice. That, and his name, Floyd, made her giggle.
Oh look, here's Girly-Girl the week before Christmas all ready to sing with the Kidz Choir. Isn't she pretty? I didn't get any pics of them actually performing because weird stage lighting + stupid camera = bad photos!
Here are the girlies (and some 4-H friends) singing and ringing the bells for the Salvation Army.
The girlies PATIENTLY waiting for the rest of the family to join us for the Christmas Story, prayer, and gift opening time:
GrammaJ's cookie and candy exstravaganza!

A blurry, but adorable photo of our little Cookie:
Some happy rough-housing with Girly-Girl, Fireball, and Uncle Pickle-Nose.
Hey Look! Grampy got a present!
Grammy and GrammaJ are making sure Silly-Head opens this one the right way...
OK...That's all folks. I need to go snarf down some of GrammaJ's cookies before I jump back into the diet. my last Flat Belly Diet post is called "I Tripped on the Yule Log and my Face Landed in the Cookie Platter". You'll all want to read that one - except for Anne 'cause she's already read it. :D
