This year I'm experiencing my own version of "A Christmas Story". You know the movie..."You'll shoot you're eye out!"
So, normally on Christmas when we don't go back North, we go to dinner on Christmas Eve with Matt's sister's family and then we get with them on Christmas Day for a big lunch.
Not so shockingly...she called me Sunday night to tell me that her daughter had just started throwing up.
Great. I swear...the illness is relentless down here!
So, tonight we headed out solo to our favorite Chinese Bistro..PF Changs...and had chinese food for Christmas Eve. Our waiter was highly amused that we'd found our way there after a Christmas disappointment and in his pity, he gave us free stuff.
We are officially "just us" this year. We have big plans of staying in our pj's all day and eating! I'm sending half of our food to Matt's sister smothered in complete compassion for what she's going through. Eh....
Then, maybe we'll do something crazy like see a movie tomorrow night?!? I guess it's totally up to us?!?
To my family back home and my sweet BFF...I miss you all so much and hope your day is really great. If you feel an unexplained sense of emptiness...it's not that you need more pie-it's my absence! :)
Love you guys!
Me, getting attacked by the boys when they opened up their Christmas pajamas!
