Scenes from a Chunky Christmas

This year, Christmas truly was chunky in every sense of the word.  Four jam-packed days of laughs, food, gifts, and very little sleep began on December 23rd with "our Christmas" at home before driving all over the state to see the families.

Jeremy lit a lovely fire for our festive dinner.

And we ate by fire light.  Gorgeous.

THIS was the fancy dinner!  Jeremy got to pick, and I wasn't complaining!

Next, we gave the animals their stockings.  Let me tell you, it was hard for Jeremy to find a football in Michigan colors since we live in the depths of Michigan State country ...

MoJo clearly appreciated the prezzie Santa picked out for him.

And Cleo tries really hard to carry this around, but it is way too heavy for her!

And it looks like MoJo and Cleo each left me a little something in my stocking.  They gave me some of their most prized possessions!!  

This is my happy face.

And Jeremy finally got his space pen!!

Next, we headed to Yale.  It was a smashing success because I ...

a) got lots of lovely presents ...

b) got my Dad to say he LOVED his presents (whoa.) ...

c) made my Mom cry with THIS present ...

d) and was FINALLY given my rightful title of Queen of Christmas.

After that, we booked it over to Jeremy's family where I ...

got to see adorable children swim in wrapping paper ...

got luxurious gifts ...

and got visited by Hanky the Christmas Poo.

Plus, we got to reveal this everywhere:

I hope your holidays were just as chunky!


  1. OMG!!! Are you saying that you are pregnant?!?! If so, CONGRATULATIONS!!! My internet girlfriend is going to be a mom! I'm so proud!

    Oh, and BTW, the Queen of Christmas? Totally hot.

  2. Love you too, Mom.

    Thanks, Allie.
