I Need New Clothes Now!!

We ate so much tonight!!!! I think we'll all moan and groan for the next 3 days. We had appetizers of deviled eggs, shrimp, hot artichoke and blue cheese dip & crackers. We followed that up with some shots of Coquito, the Puerto Rican version of egg nog(but there are no eggs in it). For the main event we had ham, corn casserole, broccoli casserole, white and sweet potatoes au gratin and crescent rolls with herbed cheese filling. Then, gosh, we hadn't eaten enough so we had deep dish apple pie with ice cream and pumpkin pie. My God I'm going on a diet(well, as soon as I polish off the leftovers)!

I guess we ladies saw the flash coming and closed our eyes for the pictures.

The above picture contains a rare sighting of the mysterious cat of the house Apple! She's rarely where the action is.

Gabriella got some cool bath toys that she is going to have a blast with as much as she loves her bath!

Of course, Bing had to get in on the action.

This Christmas has certainly been magical. Everything was really low-key since we have such a small family here. But, I have every gift I will ever wish for in having my daughter here.

To all my blog buddies who still don't have their babies home with them, I am thinking of you. I hope and pray they will all be home very soon. Next year, the blogs are going to be exciting !!

WoW ! Your table looked so pretty and your food sounds yummy. I am wearing sweat pants today because the elastic is key after all that holiday food.
