Boxing Day and 2 minute shrimp

Tonight was our 3rd Turkey Dinner out.
Tonight we went to my SIL and friend Sharon and her husband Jim's home for dinner.
My girls say that their Aunt Sharon is the best hostess. Not only do we get a full turkey dinner, she also has chips and dip, meat and cheese tray, and dainties. Also tonight she put out a shrimp ring.
I know everyone says that teenage boys can eat you out of house and home. Well my girls are healthy eaters.
They finished this shrimp tray in less then 2 minutes. Seriously, they were like piranhas. As soon as Sharon said she had a shrimp ring, it was like a magnet. They all sat at the table and inhaled this down.
Me I don't like shrimp rings. I prefer my food cooked, thank you very much.
After supper we played cards. We used to play cards every Saturday night. It started when hubby and I were just dating. Then when I had my girls we would still go and stay late, sometimes until 2:00am. But when the girls got older we just kind of stopped.
I'll tell you we sure have had a lot of laughs around that kitchen table of theirs.
Onto my day:
Today was spent just chilaxing at home. Hubby and I spent most (OK all) of the day watching Alias. We are so addicted to this show.
Today was chilly out, it was -19C this morning. So another good day to stay inside. That was until we went to Sharon and Jim's for supper.
So the holidays have come to a close. But everyone in my family is off from work next week as well. So for us we still have a whole week of relaxation.


  1. I remember growing up and then when I was newly married, a night of playing cards around the kitchen table was THE BEST way to spend an evening visiting. Oh how I miss that now!!

    Have a Wonderful New Year!

  2. I love the time between Christmas and New Years when we are off work.

  3. family parties are so much fun! glad your family had fun!

  4. Sounds like you all enjoyed your evening at your SIL's. Enjoy your rest and family time.
    Happy crafting

  7. Mmm, I love shrimp! Will you eat broiled shrimp? We play cards with our neighbors sometimes. In fact, they were just telling us about a new game last night! Have an awesome day!

  8. Sounds like a great time---Dinner over at someone else's house, cards, Alias marathon (loved that show) and still another week off..that's pretty dang close to Heaven in my book!!! Enjoy it! :)

  9. Enjoy your whole week of "chilaxin" :-)

  10. Sounds like a fun night. Also sounds like you are doing a lot better from your cold :0) I spent all day yesterday doing laundry, not fun. Needed to be done though. Enjoy your time off! I have a week left with the boys :0)
