somehow xmas has come and gone and we've all been reshackled to our desks- but i was really just starting to get into the routine of sleeping in, eating a huge breakfast with a peppermint mocha and then parking it in front of the fireplace with my new slippers and hoodie and a book... the kind of days where you leave the couch for *nothing* except further gluttony (aka leftover pasta, bread and cookies) and necessary trips to el bano (although with the proper equipment and/or diapers i could have been convinced to skip that part as well).
speaking of cookies... from this mess of a kitchen:
...came these beauties once the flourdust finally settled at 1am saturday morning:
you know you're in massachusetts when all the little gingerbreadboys hold hands....
even buddha got in on the action...
oh yeah- salad too....
clearly food is my medium... my true calling. on the other hand, street hockey *definitely* is not my forte. after 10 mins of playing hockey with william xmas eve this was my mangled appendage once known as an arm:
and what familybabyjesusbdayshindig would be complete without a two headed gingerbread man?
they're a cutie, huh? i think they need to get together with the three-eyed angel for a special holidaymutants photo shoot.
other than the food related pics above we didn't really take a ton of photos of the peeps once everyone was there (i know, shame on us)... but honestly- would you rather see 40lbs of homemade, hand-cut, painstakingly decorated cookies or three ol' nanas on a couch comparing the merits of various denture adhesives?
it was good fun and everyone had a great time and gorged. sunday morning was nice and quiet- just j.mo, myself and his momma opening presents and lazying most of the day away. santa was very good to me this year and i got some very nice gifts :) we did finally venture out in the evening for awesome japanese food- the perfect way to counteract all that starch the past 24hours. not much else happened on our day off yesterday, either... we went to ikea in the morning and ended up getting some new chairs for our tv room and later in the day i went to super88 to get all the fixin's for thai food. we're going to make a concerted effort to shop there more often because the produce is awesome and everything is so cheap... well, that and i'm part rice farmer from chiang mai way down inside...
so that's about all i have... next stop new years.
hope everyone had a good xmas.
