Here’s How I Spent My Busy but Awesome Christmas Weekend
Friday afternoon, after I left work here at the Whale, I made my way to the Floyd L Maines Veterans Memorial Arena to do the music for The Devils game. It was an exciting game with the Devils coming back from two goals down to win 6 to 3.
After the game was over, I made my way to Madame Oars. I was broadcasting live from 11 until 1 for their annual Christmas party.
Saturday morning I was on the air, then I went home and we went to church Saturday afternoon. After church, Chris and I went to a Christmas party at our friends Nick and Diane's house. That was a blast. We discovered a new drink, Mistletoe Margaritas.
Sunday I woke up just in time to get the house ready before our friends came over to watch football in our bar.
Monday after I got off the air, we went and picked up Chris's Aunt Blanch from the nursing home and brought her to our house for our annual Christmas Eve Russian dinner. That features 13 courses. Check out my blog about that meal here.
After dinner, we exchanged presents and then took Blanch back to her nursing home. We returned home and got dressed up to go to Midnight Mass.
Tuesday morning I was on the air until 10, and then we made our way to my sister's house in Carbondale, Pennsylvania for dinner and more Mistletoe Margaritas. After dinner, we sat around shooting the breeze and played a board game.
As Christmas day became Christmas night, we brought the leftover ham back out for sandwiches. Then Chris Ian and I made our way back home to Endicott.
So it was another non-stop weekend, but I had a great Christmas weekend spending time with family and friends. I hope your Christmas was great as well.
