Christmas Eve is when we celebrate in our house and I touched on our celebration in my last post; great time. Christmas Day my wife and I chilled out together as we do every year. The kids leave Christmas Eve night about 10 p.m.'ish to go spend the night and Christmas Day with their Mom/Dad from our respective 1st marriages. We've had this arrangement for a dozen years now and it has worked out quite nice. One day for Christmas that is dedicated to the kids and family, and then another just to each other.
So on Christmas Day my wife & I usually take out time getting out of bed, then play with our new toys or the kids new toys depending on if they got something good. Eventually we get out and go to a movie and then to dinner. Many of the finer dining joints are open on Christmas Day and have special menus for the day. No way we'd cook for ourselves on Christmas Day after the large production we put together each Christmas Eve. This year we went and saw Little Fockers; not a bad show for a sequel of a sequel. Sure, overly predictable for the most part, but a decent comedy played out by some great talent.
Up there you see a picture of me and another of my gifts received; it is Burt the farting Hippo who has been made famous on the t.v. show NCIS. Yep, as expected, squeeze his ass and he farts; hilarious!
Ok, off I go to get in some miles. My wife just jumped on the treadmill, I can hear it whinning as she gets her 'move' on upstairs. The holidays are largely over for me and I've moved on from all the bad foods and lazy days. I took in too much temptation on Christmas Eve & Day to be honest. Nothing as bad as in years past, but still too much. The past two days I have gone out and put in 4 miles each; and as soon as I publish this I am going out for 4 more. Another new toy of mine is this new Blackhawks skull cap...
Perfect for walking in 20F morning air.
You getting in any exercise today?
