Holiday Hooplah - part 2

.. he began to dance around...

The Family
I actually spent a good deal of time in Ohio this holiday season. First bit was quiet and visiting with my mom. Then the full season kicked in. On Christmas Eve, Mom and I exchanged gifts before heading over to my family get-together. There were probably over 30 people there. It was a lot of fun, except for the stress of the Bengals losing to the Broncos.

On Christmas Day, Erin came over for lunch and met a manageable portion of my family, a few uncles and an aunt. I gave Erin her gifts, and then we went to her house for dinner, and that's when she gave me her gifts. We played some cards (a really fun game called Shanghai) and then hit we all hit the sack.

The next day Erin, her family, and I went to her Grandma's house for her big family get together. She has a really fun family, reminds me of my own, actually.

New Year's Eve was fun with Erin's friend Alexis and her fiance' David. We played a couple games, burned some pieces of paper that had all the bad stuff from 2006, ate 12 grapes and sang Auld Lang Syne at midnight. This was the first time in a couple of years that I've gotten to see "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve", and I couldn't help but mourn a little bit. The end of an era is close at hand.

After Midnight we watched really bad horror movies... so bad you can't help but laugh at how bad they are. We watched until we fell asleep.

In between all these things was more games, food, laughter, and good times than you can shake a stick at... and believe me, I can shake a stick at a whole lot of fun.

Happy New Year! Have a wonderful and blessed 2007!
