Twas the day before Christmas…

December 24, 2008 Sarah Coggins

The last few days have absolutely flown by. Our Christmas celebrations began last Saturday with a family gathering at Trent’s parents’ house. We enjoyed lunch, catching up and present swapping with his parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. It’s so rare we all manage to be in the same place at one time and so much fun. Afterward, we hurried back to Raleigh to attend a dinner for my company party. By the time we returned home that night, it was almost midnight and we were exhausted!

An overnight rainstorm left us without power on Sunday morning and caused us to oversleep. Probably just as well as tired as we were from the day before. We spent the day at home cleaning up, finishing Christmas cards, and relaxing.

Monday and Tuesday were work as usual. I was so worn out Monday night that I went to bed at 8pm! Yesterday we caught up with a friend for dinner and a trip to Target for odds and ends.

Today we’re thinking of catching an afternoon matinee. We haven’t been to the movie theater since June when we saw You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. I need to look up what’s playing. I honestly am not sure what movies are out right now. Hopefully a good comedy. 🙂

Better get off this machine so that I can get a few things done (couple more gifts to wrap) before we head out. Have a wonderful Christmas Eve! And don’t forget to track Santa tonight! He’s already started on his trip… Norad Tracks Santa 2008

    Hi Sarah! Glad you are well! I wondered where you were. We are thinking about checking out Marley and Me sometime this week. I know youre a cat lover, but the book was WONDERFUL. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Rest assured you are more up on movies than I am:) I cannot honestly recall the last movie I saw alone with DH. We did actually take the kids to see Wall-E this summer though...

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
