    I can't wait to get back to a normal eating schedule today. Three days in a row of doing nothing but eating has taken it's toll on me. Surprisingly, I haven't gained any weight but I'm not sure how when all I've eaten is carbohydrates.

    We had a relaxing holiday this year as I felt little pressure. Here are some pictures from the last few days.

    Sunday we attended a birthday party and later another get together.
    Here is the cake:

    This is me with the birthday girl:

    Christmas eve I slaved away all day on the meal.
    Here is one of the tables. There's a lot going on with all those patterns, but my friend bought all the table linens for my birthday. I felt compelled to use everything at once. I'm not sure why I couldn't put the table cloth on straight.

    My mom bought all of us soft fuzzy socks:

    My grandparents made it this year:

    Here is Gramps with size 56 underwear. We play that game where you draw numbers and everyone picks wrapped gifts. Some are good and as you can see, some are not so good. You can totally steal people's gifts. My uncle ended up with these babies.

    This is the whole famn damily at Gramp and Grams'. I was feeling really fat until I compared last year's picture with this year's:

    Finally, we have the Sign family on Christmas morning:

    Hope you are all recovering well from the holiday debauchery. I'm working today so I'll see you slackers on the other side!

    I like your pictures and the birthday girl is adorable.

    I ate more yesterday than I have since I got home from the hospital. It started when I drank 3 pepsis in a row before dinner was even done.

    Do me a favor and send me the sugar free cookie recipe.

    I have two pairs of fuzzy striped socks similar to those! I love them so much and I need more! They rock!

    And I love that you all wore matching light blue sweaters. Too fun.

    Christmas is all about bad carbs and I was just complaining about it myself. But, they really are yummy.

    Oh the white elephants. Personally I don't like those. One year I brought to nice of a gift. The next year I brought a real rotten gift. I can never get my white elephant gift giving right.

    Love those fuzzy socks. They look so nice and warm.

    Great family pictures especially the four of you. I wanted to do one this year but somehow we just never did. Oh well, there is always next year.

    I so over eat yesterday. It is finally time to start that diet. Arg!

    Oh and this is my first year being a slacker and I LOVE IT!
