A Few Of Us At Christmas

Hope everyone is well and had a merry Christmas. We are back home now and the dishwasher and washing machine are running at full tilt. John went into work and Aaron is asleep on the couch. Why is it that I can't get my boys to go upstairs and get into bed? They love to fall asleep on the couch when they come down here, go figure.

Today CMU is playing Purdue in the Motor City Bowl at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. Later this afternoon John, Aaron and I will head down there to cheer for the Chippewa's of CMU.
Mom and Dad are bringing my nephew and some of his friends down so we will meet up with them and other friends from MP to tail-gate before the big game.

This not putting up any Christmas decorations is working out to be a pretty good deal. When we got home last night the boys unloaded the car for me and I got everything sorted out and put away. John and I opened our presents and we had time after that to watch a movie and pop some popcorn. Today while John catches up at work a bit Aaron and I will get to do a little shopping with our Christmas money and have a nice lunch at Partridge Creek either at PF Chang's or Brio before heading down to the game. It is really nice not having to worry about taking down decorations and just being able to concentrate on enjoying family and friends!

Merry Christmas everyone, from a few of us!
