Yep, another one!

We all had a lot of laughs watching the puppies open their presents. I managed to get Holly's froggie away from her and re-wrapped it for her to open on Christmas Day.

Her favorite toy was one that Casey got so I guess we'll be getting her one next time we get to Wallymart.

After the gifts were all opened we put out the snacks/lunch. They were my responsibility and I made a nacho dip, spinach dip, crab dip, veggies and dip, a shrimp ring, and my sister added water chestnuts wrapped in bacon. We were still full from breakfast but that didn't stop us from making a major dent in the snackage. Then the cards came out again and once again I kicked everyone's ass in hearts with a final score of 6. I? Rule at hearts! Actually, I was very lucky, but I didn't admit that to them.

Our family is also big on playing games. We play them all. Scrabble, Hearts, Trivial Pursuit, Scene It, Pictionary, Boggle, Uno, all kinds of card games.

Dip? Is good! And I love all your pics. I would love to one day have a white Christmas. The closest we ever get is unbelievably dense fog!

It was almost 70 degrees outside at our house on Christmas Eve. I almost wore shorts that evening because it was so hot, but it just didn't seem right.

Lookit the cute little puppy. Aw.

I want to come to your place too. Between the games and the multiple dips (no, I did not call you and your family stupid) it must be a great time.

My kids got Operation for Christmas. That's fun to play with a 3 year old. *grin*

Glad you had a good Christmas!

Lights, I love all the pictures! You're going to laugh (or think I'm a complete freak), but I feel like I recognize all your family and friends and traditions.. must be the hick Canadian background.


I almost won at Hearts when we played with my in-laws but my FIL pulled ahead at the last minute and beat me by two. I was pissed.

I'm so glad you had a happy Christmas and everyone enjoyed their gifts.

*another smooch*

Zombs? Where are your clothes? Just wait til mtw finds out we're playing nekkid twister over here. *grin*

LOL @ Coco and the hick Canadian background! Now I have to post the picture of my brother in his new hat.

So, you didn't pop then. I've been working all morning and it's been driving me crazy wondering if you were in labour.

Can't wait for you all to show up at Mom's for Christmas next year. You think I should tell her? Or should it be a surprise?

I once invited the entire RCMP Musical ride to Mom's for supper without telling her so this shouldn't be too much of a shock.

I have (2) set of pics posted. One set has my dog and the other has my mom's (2). We are all into the same breeds.

Sorry I'm late posting here.
