E was in Sudbury with his dad from 20-25th. He came back to my house around 12pm on the 25th. sooooooooooo, our "xmas eve" was the 25th and "xmas day" was the 26th.
My friend Louise came home with her kids and husband from L.A for 2 weeks. Louise, her sister and her brother (who to my shock and horror is now legal to go to bars. I swear, last time I saw him he was 6 years old back in the day when Louise and I went to a club called NRG!!). We went to Club 54 - it was my first and [possibly last time there. It was tonnes of fun dancing and hanging out with the Barley clan, but really not my thing anymore - the music was really loud! Was it always that loud??!! :) If they had been playing current music - a little J.Timberlake, Nelly Furtado or anything like that it would have been better.
My grandma (Nanny Mitzi) flew in from North Dakota - she is doing pretty well! It was so nice to visit with her - we miss her alot. My friend TT and her sister Nicki came over with their kids to see Nanny. We all grew up together, so Nanny is kinda their grandma too since their extended family is all in South Africa. Mom, Nanny and I went to see the movie Queen on 24th. Good movie - Helen Mirren was great. But really quite wierd that they were able to make a whole 2 hr movie out of the reaction of the Queen after Diana's death.
Was sooooo happy to get my baby back on the 25th! Missed him tonnes. We had everyone over to my house for Xmas Eve dinner - can't wait to get into my new house in July - more space!! I made a roast, baked potatoes, asparagus, and salad. It was nice...then after cleaning up, E put out cookies & milk for santa and carrotts for Rudolfe. He went to bed really well (was still getting over his strep throat from week before). In the moring he woke me up at 6:40am saying that he thinks Santa was here and lets go see what presents he left! We went downstairs and sure enough cookies, milk and carrotts were gone and E's stocking was filled and Santa left two wrapped presents for him. He got the Thomas the Tank Engine flashlight he's been asking for and a "Cars" shake n go car. We then got dressed and headed over to Grammie and Boppie's house for the festivities! So spoiled we all are!! I made the Land of Nod cinnamon buns - they are to die for. Recipe is in the Best of the Best of Bridge... highly recommend! Also had the Xmas Wife Saver (in same cookbook). It was a great day! So glad Nanny Mitzi was there with us...
Tonight E and I are going over to Barbie's house for early dinner with their friends and then will just come home put E to bed and see if there is a good movie on. Was invited a few other places, but just feel like staying home this year!

Muuuumic = Music (the way E pronounces it!)
I bought a cute CD at Fortinos that is kids singing christmas songs. E thinks it's great! He does the cutest thing - he gets my throw pillows from my bed, and puts his "friends" (myriad of stuffed animals - mostly dogs) on top of the pillows. Then, turns the cd on - the first song is Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Then he gets his Rudolph stuffed animal and has him "act out" the song for his "friends" that are watching!! it is very cute (of course)!
Yesterday I was at dentist as they re-did a root canal. That was fun. But what makes it worse is that I picked up pink eye on Sunday - E and I were at a friends bday party at an indoor playland. Just imagine all the germs. YUCK! E had a fantastic time as usual, but I came home with pink eye. So, this morning I discovered it was now in both eyes. Eyes are all puffy , red and goopy. Attractive.
