I think normally I drive my husband mad over the holiday season. I want things perfect and I love to host gatherings, but it is a lot of work! And..... I am also just completely high strung at the best of times, but then you add a bit of holiday stress? Yeah....
So the trick to a great holiday at the Went Household is to keep the mama drugged up. ahahahahaha
Christmas evening we went to church and then to a friend's house for a big seafood binge party afterwards. Christmas day we lounged in our pj's all day and did a heck of a lot of nothing. I made my mother's traditional holiday breakfast which we ate for supper. We all played with our new toys. Boxing day we went to another friend's house for a big supper that was absolutely amazing- good friends, good food, and good fun.
And then Boxing Day night.... the pukes hit. Cavan is most definitely sick as he was up puking all last night. I think I have it but am in denial. I have only puked once, but have zero appetite and don't feel so great. At least the pukes held off until after all the festivities!
And photos of the fun that was had:
