21 Thoughts From Christmas Day

I hope you had a fantastic Christmas day.  We did!  It was a great day filled with faith, family, fun, and food.  Throughout the day I had lots of thoughts.  Some of which I’ll share with you here.

21 Thoughts From Christmas Day

  1. I think I’m as excited as the kids… maybe more.
  2. I wish I could’ve slept better last night. I think I was up every 2 hours.
  3. There is a definite difference between an 11 and a 14 year old. The younger is up before the sun.  The older will sleep until you wake her up… even on Christmas morning.
  4. Making the youngest wait to go downstairs to see what Santa brought until she’s bouncing off the walls is entertaining and entirely too much fun.
  5. I love family traditions!
  6. Santa was very generous.
  7. I’m so glad I prepped all the food on Christmas Eve.  This is the quickest and easiest I’ve thrown together every meal.
  8. The best gifts are the unexpected ones. This sriracha t-shirt is awesome. Sriracha t-shirt
  9. I hate installing screen protectors.
  10. There are how many pieces in this Lego set?
  11. This screen protector was easier to install than the last one.
  12. This Lego set is not going to be done today.
  13. There is such a thing as a bad Christmas movie.
  14. If you can’t laugh watching Christmas Vacation we probably can’t be friends.
  15. Pete’s Christmas (a movie on Netflix) is the Christmas equivalent of Groundhog Day.
  16. Our annual Christmas Picnic is one of my favorite meals of the year! I love shrimp cocktail and bread and butter pickles.Christmas Picnic dinner plate
  17. A little sriracha makes shrimp cocktail sauce even better
  18. There need to be more days as family centered and as lazy as Christmas Day.
  19. Today was a great day.
  20. I am blessed.  Truly blessed.
  21. Thank you, God! For the gift of your Son… and the gift of this day!

  1. We had an amazing Christmas this year! The best part of our day was waking up to a white Christmas and spending a quite day with my wife before visiting with family. Even though I have been home recovering from back surgery the past few weeks and my Father in law ended up in intensive care the week of Christmas for surgery on his small intestine, both of us are home and recovering well and we were blessed to be able to spend time with family. Due to financial difficulties last year, my wife and I decided not to get anything for each other last year, but instead worked on paying off medical bills. After following many of Dave Ramsey’s tips this past year, it enabled us to have completely met all of our financial responsibilities. That in turn provided us the means to have a wonderful Christmas this year. While the true meaning of Christmas isn’t about spending money on material things, it was nice to be able to spoil each other just a bit this year, as well as the opportunity to give back to others.
    Happy New Year to you and the family Tony, and thank you for being such a great friend! We are truly blessed and are looking forward to a great 2016. 🙂

  2. Thanks, my friend. I’m so happy to hear that you had an amazing Christmas! You deserve it. Prayers for continued healing for you and your Father-in-law. May 2016 be good to us all!
