A Very Wellington Christmas

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas...
...from Our Family to Yours!

Christmas in Wellington began like any other. Roused from our slumber by an all too eager Calvert sometime well after 10am, we all rushed to gather around the old Christmas Ironing Board to see what Santa had brought in the night. Despite the short holiday notice there was an abundance of fabulous gifts including an American football, flasks, Vodafone credit, and plenty of IOU's... Then it was on to breakfast and the traditional viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Sh***er's full, Clark.

With the morning mimosas starting to kick in, we turned our efforts to the great holiday dinner that had been planned for days (or hours). A Feast fit for kings soon lay before us, cooked to perfection by our resident chefs and labeled properly by the receptionists.

After what some might consider an unfair share of eat, drink, and making of the merry, we turned to more traditional events such as the now annual paper airplane contest and that quintessential of Christmas customs, the terrace potato toss. All in all, it was a Christmas probably much like yours. Just really different.

NOTE: Due to the Christmas/Boxing Day Holiday schedule, Week 2 Power Rankings will be released later this week. Thank you for your patience.

Merry Christmas to all of you!! I really appreciated the update. It is great to see almost all of you on the balcony with the airplanes. Did you have any scientific way to see whose flew the farthest or reached ground first? Merry Christmas to my son, Matt. Thanks for trying to reach us to wish a Merry Christmas to all here. Nanny said to tell you merry Christmas from her & she loves you. Of course, we do, TOO! Mom

If you didn't already listen to it, perhaps visiting Mimosa's Witnesses on MySpace would provide your next morning mimosa experience with an appropriate soundtrack. Merry Christmas to you all! I'm gambling my ass off trying to earn some moolah to come visit y'all.

Happy holidays, guys! so glad to hear y'all had such a traditional christmas morning what with the togetherness and the presents and the getting drunk.

and i'm totally starting an annual paper plane throwing contest with my family. it'll give the kids something to look forward to since just getting presents on christmas year after year can get pretty dull. glad to see you guys are keeping thoroughly entertained.
