Merry Christmas, Everyone!  We woke up and are playing with all of Santa’s presents that he dropped off.  I will have pictures of everything up later today, but I wanted to show you our holiday card.  I was addressing cards like crazy before I left San Diego and brought a few down here to Aruba to give to our neighbors and friends here.

Thank you to each and everyone one of you who reads my blog and whom I’ve gotten to know over the past few years.  I have wonderful readers and have made some amazing friends and wish each one of you a wonderful Christmas, if you’re celebrating.  And of course, many blessings to you all in 2011!

If you missed my post last night, we did break out one gift, one day early.

It was fun hearing about your holiday traditions and how you did gifts in your house growing up and now.  I love hearing how everyone celebrates their holidays.

Dessert: Raw Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Donut Holes
This recipe takes about 10 Minutes to make from Start to Finish.  Better, faster, far cheaper, and much healthier than any store-bought dessert.  If you have any last minute parties you need to whip something up for, these should work for you.

1.  Did Santa come to your house last night?  Did he bring you anything?
Yes, pictures later today!

2.  Or did you exchange gifts with friends and family yet?
We didn’t do gifts per se, but we are in Aruba, celebrating together as a family.  That’s all the “gift” we could ask for!

3. How are you celebrating the day?
It’s raining.  Still.  I would love to get to the beach or pool today because time is ticking on our trip.  Not sure if that’s going to happen but I sure hope so.  And if that fails, we have plenty of new Santa gifts to keep us busy!

Time to make breakfast and get a Workout in!

See you back here later today with the full lineup of photos from today.  There are tons!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!
