Christmas at the Russells

by Meghann on December 25, 2010

Now it’s time to wish you Merry Christmas from the Russell house. ๐Ÿ™‚


This morning we celebrated the Christmas holiday with my family and this afternoon we drove to Tampa for Derek’s family. Relationships are all about compromise (especially around the holidays), right?

Everyone should be happy to hear I survived the 2 hour drive to Tampa unharmed. I slept the entire was and actually feeling better once we made it Derek’s parents house.

Derek’s parents had cooked up a lovely Christmas Day feast featuring ham, turkey, potatoes, casseroles, etc.


But, as good as I thought I was feeling all my stomach could really handle was some bread and rice.


Even that was too much and I’ve regretted the decision ever since. It’s weird because I feel hungry, but as soon as anything goes in, it immediately wants to come back up. ๐Ÿ™ I also got word that Anthony (my sister’s boyfriend) is feeling sick now too. We’re still going back and forth on whether it’s food poisoning or a stomach bug. Either way, it sucks. ๐Ÿ™

After dinner we took our turns opening presents around the tree.


What could it be?

Derek and I were both spoiled this Christmas. So many amazing gifts this year, plus it was fun to give great gifts too. Derek spent the majority of the evening showing off the calendar I made him for Christmas. It was fun to go over all the photos with his parents and grandparents. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have a low key evening planned. I believe a bottle of ginger ale and Netflix will be involved. Let’s hope I’ve kicked this thing by the morning. I miss food. ๐Ÿ™

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night!

Merry Christmas chica ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you had a great holiday despite feeling icky. Sleeping always makes me feel a *little* better. And what a better place to sleep than a car right ๐Ÿ˜‰

Feel better! Anything that involves being sick to your stomach is never good, but it sounds like you’re making a relatively quick recovery!

Omg that sucks that everyone is getting sick. My bets are on food poisoning rather than a stomach bug but either way, that’s too bad. Glad you survived the drive and are feeling better though!

Merry xmas and a good nite to you too! Sleep well ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you think maybe it was all the chocolate?? Not that that’s ever a bad thing! But I remember one time I ate a lot of chocolate on Halloween and puked the entire next day. ๐Ÿ™

If it was food poisoning it would be coming out of both ends and I doubt you’d be able to make it 2 hours in a car. That being said, I know here in NY there is a really nasty stomach virus going around that lasts anywhere from 24-48 hours. Hopefully you’ll feel 100% better in the morning!

My hubs mom is a nurse. She said food poisoning comes out of both ends and usually hits within a few short hours. So if it’s not coming from both ends, it’s likely just stomach bug that got spread so quickly through your fam

Awww, you poor thing!!!! I hope you start to feel back to normal soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad it was a great Christmas regardless.
