Me & My Muse – Day 536: Christmas Aftermath

With Christmas being over, I will now share with you the Christmas that I experienced.

When I woke up, my brother was the only other person up.  I did my devotional and waited for everyone else to get up.

Eventually, my parents woke up.  After having Crockpot Breakfast Casserole for breakfast, we started opening the gifts.  This is what it looked like before.

Muse:  Wow!  That’s a lot of gifts!

I know.  This is what it looked like after we opened them.

Muse:  That reminds me of the gifts that I opened couple days ago.  The tree looked just like that when we were done.

It always does.  But it was fun while it lasted.  After that, I took inventory of my gifts.  For those of you who are wondering, this is what I got for Christmas.

Muse:  That’s a lot of gifts!  For me, I got mostly books this year.  I see that you didn’t get any…

I know.  I’m guessing that you had a good Christmas.

Muse:  I did.  All the Intangibles came over to my house and we celebrated Christmas there.  Besides books, I got some jewelry, some lipstick and a couple of electronics.

That’s a lot of good gifts.  As for the gifts above, I got more when I went to my grandparents.  Moving on with the recap, I got ready and I went over to my grandparents.  Me, my brother, my sister and my cousins all opened our stockings, had dinner, had dessert, did the white elephant gift exchange and came home.  The dinner was prime rib, brussel sprouts, rolls, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, zucchini casserole, black and green olives and orange fluff.  The desserts consisted of a pumpkin roll, a chocolate roll, some Christmas cookies, and some peppermint bark.  I just took a chocolate roll and a pumpkin roll and some peppermint bark.

Muse:  That’s quite a spread!  The food that we had was a little different, since not everyone there liked Tangible food.

Well, that’s the gist of it.  Having shared that with you, I now need to get ready.

Muse:  I need to ready myself.  See you later!

I really need to get going.  Today’s high is going to be 42 degrees and the silver lining is getting paid today.

To those of you who are enjoying your new gifts, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I got a lot of gifts this year!  And with all those new books, I’m going to have a lot of reading to do.  Tee hee…
