Christmas is over... now what?

All the presents under the tree. Ashley came over right after work. Christmas day it was just the 3 of us, nice, low key, fun.

On Christmas eve Glen and I went to Panera Bread and bought these for breakfast - A danish ring (apple, cherry, and cheese) and a Holiday bread, which is stuffed with yummy fruit. Both were delish!

Martina was right there with us the whole day! Notice teddy is there too!

This is one of the most worth while gifts I bought! It was just for fun but she ended up loving it. It is called a Port-a-Pug. I told her it was because she wants a dog but her Apt. is too small and they don't allow dogs.

Glen, Ashley and I went "Day after Christmas" shopping on Sunday. We went to Kohl's, Walmart, Glen went to Home Depot, we went to Panera Bread for coffee (can you guess by now that this is our favorite place). Then we dropped Ashley off at home so she could sleep (she works the overnights) and Glen and I went to Watkins Glen for more shopping!
On the way home we stopped at one of the wineries to do a tasting and ended up buying 5 bottles! We went to "Penguin Bay Winery". Glen had never been to this one and I had been there once. We liked a lot of their wines! Oh those wineries are fun! If anyone wants to visit here and go wine tasting, just let me know!

Glen went back to work on Mon.
I am kidless all week! Yea! I got alot done on Mon. Laundry, Took down the tree in the playroom and packed away the Christmas stuff, and just general clean up.
Mon. evening I went over to my in-laws for dessert. Glen's brother, his wife, son and one of the daughters were there visiting from MI. I hadn't seen them in about a year. So that was fun (should have taken my camera).

TV - I am not looking forward to all the re-runs that are on this next week.
It looks like there are some good shows starting in Jan though. One of my favorites on HGTV is back - "Selling NY" if you have never seen this, it is awesome! Prob. especially if you are not a NYer. They show these multi million dollar condos. Its fun! First show is Jan. 6.
But the Show I most excited about is "The Cape"! Who else is waiting for this show? With Australian hottie - David Lyons. He played on ER for a short stretch. This one starts Jan. 9.

Oh I am so excited to do some knitting for myself! I got a new coat for Christmas, so I want to knit a scarf and matching hat. I also have a sweater picked out that I want to try.
