2nd Christmas today

After getting home from Muskoka I had to get busy making some Cheesecakes. One for Terry's place and one for tomorrow with Jean's family. I got home at 2pm and we left for Terry's just after 4pm. It was nice seeing Shawn and Marianne, Mandy Jr Emily and Jordan, Terry and Dave and Bailey and Blue. We sat around and talked and ate shrimp, cheese, crackers and other finger foods while Terry with the help of the other ladies finished preparring dinner. JR cooked the turkey and brought it to the house. Shawn was the biggest kid there. He kept bugging Terry about oppening gifts saying she said before supper. He had his presents stacked and had carefully examined each one. At one point he grabbed a gift for Jordan and told him to take it into the bathroom and open it and throw the paper away. After taking it to the washroom he came back to make sure he could open it and Shawn said yes. He came back and told Shawn what it was and they were both giggling. Dinner was erved and the food was great!! I followed a Christmas tradition by eating too much !! I did save room for the Cheesecake. Shortly after Shawn made his way to the front of the tree and got things started. Gifts were exchanged as well as hugs and Shawn and the kids were very happy to have finaly oppened the gifts. Everything went well and we all enjoyed ourselves. Although Dad was tired he had a good time and was feeling good when we got up to leave (painless not drunk) Jean on the other hand had too many glasses of wine so we wrestled the keys from her and I drove us home safe in the fog. Thanks to every one !!!!
