Christmas Wrap Up

The Christmas Season is over. Noel marked the occasion on Sunday by taking down the tree. "I'm over it," were her exact words. We had two delightful Christmas celebrations; the first with the extended Huber family (seen below, minus Mom and Dad as they were grabbing the grandkids' attention and snapping pictures, respectively) and the second with just us Indy Hubers on Christmas Morning.

The Annual dysFUNctional Huber Family Christmas (as Mom calls it) was a great time to catch up with the entire family. The wives put up with the Huber boys crude innuendo and inside jokes. Dad was nice enough to set up the trains for the young ones, but I think Greg and I had just as much fun with them.

A hat tip to my lovely wife for the idea of devoting part of the gift exchange to an As Seen on TV product. Gifts ranged from an Obama Chia Head to the Big City Slider Station. Mom cooked a wonderful meal and the grandkids managed to stain only half of the furniture (they'll circle back the remainder next year).

In Indy, Santa arrived on schedule on the 25th. We tracked him on NORAD's website for most of the afternoon before settling down for a long winters nap. The children woke up (early) to a beautiful tree (as seen at top) before diving under it to rescue the presents from their wrapping paper cocoons. The stars of the morning were the Zhu Zhu Pets that were located by one of Santa's more resourceful elves (with a big hat tip to Alan for showing the aforementioned elf http://www.slickdeals.net/).

We trust that everyone had a Merry Christmas and is looking forward to a safe, healthy and Happy New Year.
