Post Holiday Hangover

I don’t have an actual hangover, but yesterday I woke up feeling tired, dehydrated and a little nauseous!!!  Food Hangover!  I get so excited on Christmas day that I forget to drink enough water, I am up too early and I eat waaaay to much sugar!  Yesterday, the 26th, I stuck to soup, salad, veggies and lots of water.  I feel a lot better today!

Christmas Eve started with blood mary’s family pictures at my Father in Law’s.  Then home for last minute Christmas preparations and the delivery of some presents for places we wouldn’t be able to go.  We headed back over to my FIL’s that evening for dinner, drinks and presents!

After all the presents were unwrapped, my MIL had one more gift for everyone……MARSHMALLOW GUNS!!!  As soon as everyone saw what they were, a marshmallow war broke out!  It was a blast (and marshmallows were everywhere)!

We had so much fun!  After dinner and Christmas cookies, it was time to head home to get a good night’s sleep for Christmas day!

Christmas Day started at my Mom’s for breakfast and presents.  It was delicious (as usual).  I ate one biscuit with sausage gravy, a spoonful of scrambled eggs and one piece of bacon.  I may have had a piece of candy from my stocking as well.  I can tell I’m getting older, because candy doesn’t sound so good that early in the morning any more!  It was a perfect way to start the day! (I didn’t take one picture! I could kick myself!)

Around noon, we headed to my Dad’s for lunch and more presents!  I ate turkey, mashed potatoes, cornbread dressing, broccoli and a deviled egg.  I may have had so-many-treats-I-can’t-remember-what-I-ate…and there explains the hangover!

My Dad’s is the house of LOTS.  There was LOTS of food, LOTS of people, LOTS of dogs, LOTS of presents and LOTS of laughs!  Having a big family is always the most fun during the holidays!

By that evening, we were pooped and headed home for our jammies and our bed!  We had a wonderful Christmas filled to the brim with our awesome family!

Next up, New Orleans for New Year’s!!  Stay tuned……
