Festive Egg Nog - Part 3

Boxing Day.

One day after Christmas, two days after Christmas Eve.

Day three of the turkey dinner.

We all woke up (groggily) on Boxing Day, and I needed to take several deep breaths. And then drink several cups of coffee.

Day 3.

The morning was spent playing with new toys (me too! I was reading my new book!) and then Shake'n'Bake and Splat went down for their nap. Boyfriend and I showered and prepared the gifts and baby bag to go to his mom's house after nap.

Boyfriend's Mom was there, Boyfriend's Mom's Boyfriend and Boyfriend's Brother. A friend of their family came to dinner as well.

We opened presents in the living room (Shake'n'Bake kept asking for another present to open... how embarassing) and we all had cider/beer/eggnog and sat in the living room socializing until dinner.

Then we sat at a beautiful dining room table and ate a delicious dinner. All of the food was placed in the middle of the table and then we passed it around and served ourselves. The meal was amazing and we had nice quiet conversation throughout.

Shake'n'Bake was a big hit again, like usual, and she made a new friend who listened to her sing and played music for her to dance to. She was pretty distracted by the different rooms and chasing the cat around, we brought toys for her to play with but she wasn't interested in sitting still.

We left around 7 and brought the girls home. Shake'n'Bake got to open another new toy and play with it before bed.

Boyfriend and I (specifically 'I') settled into the couch and looked forward to a couple of days of no visiting.

Company takes a lot out of me.

Three down, one to go.
