Another one for the books.

Christmas '08 was the balls.

I loved it, the boys loved it, even my scroogey hubby loved it.

The gifts were amazing, the family wasn't smothering, and the food was to die for.

The boys got completely spoiled, and it was the first year they really got the whole Santa Claus delivering gifts thing, so it was absolutely a blast. So many toys, books, movies, an outdoor play set, even little robes that they refuse to take off, and spend the day running around like little Hugh Hefners.


I didn't even mind that my mother in law bought me some bejeweled Dolly Parton looking maternity jeans that had a sticker on them that said Plus Size. Plus Size? Really? Ummm...is it the giant plate of ham and chicken wings I just ate that is throwing you off? I mean, what the fuck...er...I mean...thanks...for the thoughtful gift...I'll be in the bathroom listening to the Cure and cutting my wrists. After I finish my cake.

But, other than that, I was totally cheery and festive. So much so, in fact, that I am allowing the publishing of this horrific belly shot, taken first thing Christmas morning, with my Pam Anderson boobs, and my hair all skanky and still smelling like the 3 pounds of ham I ate the night before.


Hot.

Amazing. My tummy right now looks as big as I did at 9 months with my first. Turns out, after you have one, from your nipples to your labia, things go to pot.

Which reminds me, take a moment to click my ads, I need to save up to get things tucked, lifted, saline filled, and sucked out.

Anyways, a plus size time was had by all, and the first year of us implementing our one side of family per day rule was a smashing success. Sure, they were a touch pissy about it, but less time in the car means more time I can stuff my face and open gifts.

I even went against my own judgment to never bake anything ever again and made beer bread. With beer. Mmmmm. Beer.


Psych. I dumped the leftovers.

This one's for my homies.

And, unlike anything else I bake, ever, it was edible. Down right delicious actually.

A Christmas miracle.

P.S. Can't get enough of me today? I know, right, kinda addicting. I am also stripping over at Tales from LaLa Land, today.

P.P.S. Ok not stripping. Just posting. But I wouldn't rule it out. For the right amount. I'm not keeping my belly ring in for nothing.

Edit: Just to clarify, I don't really have a belly ring, if I did have one, it would literally look like a door knocker right now.

Mmmmm....beer bread.

Ali said...

I like how you kept your pinky up while emptying the Bud. Very classy. What cute boys you have! Glad to hear you guys had such a Merry Christmas!

MamaNeena said...

My MIL wanted to buy me a jacket recently and she took me to the old lady department store and stuck me right in the middle of the plus section with the instructions: "Okay, find a jacket you like!"

I wasn't even pregnant...apparently just fat.

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Oh my serious God.

You look SMOKIN. And I dont mean that in some creepy guy liking pregger girls kinda way.

I mean you look GREAT, youre GLOWING, you look HAPPY,

and yes, your Pam Andersons are ROCKIN.


loved the beer pour, btw...Two-and-One, killaz.

And at the risk of shamelessly plugging, dont forget today is the last day you can enter for Deb's and my Grand Prize Giveaway...come see!!

Lamb said...

im so fucking jealous of those boobs and that belly.

at my 10 yr reunion when they called up all the pregnant chicks, they stopped me and said 'are you really pregnant? we might need to see a doctors note.'

yes, i tried to punch them.

Sam_I_am said...

Awwwww, mini Playboys! I have a recipe for saukraut beer cake with chocolate icing. I'm going to make it one day, because it sounds so disgusing that it must be good ;-)

April said...

glad you had a great christmas! your kids are ADORABLE! and i love the belly shot :-)

CaJoh said...

Mmm Bear Bread… Love the beer pour and the look of sinful desire of wanting a sip before you pour.

Have a great New Year!

Tuesday Girl said...

I looked huge with my second pregnancy at 6 months. After you have 1 pregnancy it is all downhill from there I don't care WHAT Gabrielle Reese looks like.

Volleyball is stupid.

Dejoni said...

Your boobs are huge! My gawd...they'll be bigger than your baby when it's born.
Good lord woman, what bra size are you wearing? I got to a 34 DD...and I felt like Pamela..but I think you got me beat.

kel said...

Completely jealous of the boobs. Bitch.

Jennifer said...

Your little Hefs are so cute!!

Glad you had a plus-sized Xmas!!

Keely said...

Aren't MILs great? Mine made all kinds of fantastic comments about my bod when I was pregnant. And after I'd given birth, she started in on my humongous feet.

Nice rack.

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Sorry, just came back by to see your smokin mommy bod again.

how many times in one day will be inappropriate? I'll undercut the number by two just to be sneaky.

(please dont say four...)

Marie said...

Your kids are TOO CUTE!

And I'm sorry you had to throw away the beer.

Diane said...

Lordy, girl... I thought I had big boobs. And don't feel bad about the belly... my kid is 9 and I still have it. Sigh.

Glad your Christmas was great! And I love your little Hefs... too cute!!

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

RIGHT ON prego! Those boobs and that belly! Looking good with growing another LIFE inside ya! Your are so right about after number one, everything stretches out WAY sooner - it's crazy.

Your boys are friggin' delicious. Even more delish than that beer bread I think... : - )

J.Danger said...

you look totally hot. The boobs do it.

The Mom said...

Look at those robes!! So adorable! You look glowy!

Island Travel Girl said...

I am a little bummed that the belly shot didn't show off the belly ring, but hey, I guess some things are private. Condition of your labia, on the other hand - public.

I am so glad you had a good holiday, and that the bread came out yummy. I think you need to have a contest and give away the bejeweled maternity jeans. I'm not even pregnant and I want 'em.

Tony said...

Beer bread? That sounds too good. Loved the kids. I would say you have that glow to you a happy preggy gal would have. We know Jay loves it. Happy New Year. 1Z 10F R31 13 7281 719 3

The Hussy Housewife said...

We do the one family a day to..woeks much better..more drinking..food..etc!

AJ said...

Yay, glad it was a success! I like the one side of the family per day rule:) We traveled 3.5 hours in between houses for two years and then called "enough of that shit!"

JD said...

in some states dumpin beer like that

is a capital offense

jill jill bo bill said...

So glad you and your bosoms had a fabulous Christmas. Your boys are precious and your boobs and belly look great. Beer bread? You must give the recipe!!!

Anissa Mayhew said...

We had plans for a trip to see the Grand Canyon one year soon, but I'm pretty sure after a glimpse of that rocking cleavage I no longer have need.

I'm not kidding!! If you have those knockers still rolling in chicago we are GOLDEN for free drinks. Bring tank tops.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

My gosh! It seems like only yesterday you told us you were pregnant.

It's awesome when Christmas with the crazy family actually works out well. Good for you!

Temple said...

You definitely have the cleavage to go with the Dolly Parton bedazzled jeans!!! Congrats on the great Xmas!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Awwww....great belly shot! And I love the little matching bathrobes.

"The balls" is one of my very favorite expressions EVER and you rock for leading your post off with it.

Merry Christmas!

Jennifer said...

You look smashing! And those boys are adorable!
But the belly ring? Please tell me your kidding! How do you manage it? There's no WAY I could have kept mine in with my first. And no WAY I'd try to pull it off now!

Threeboys1mommy said...

1. The boobies are glorious.
2. Sure they look like little Hefs, but can they dance like him?
3. Am I the only person in the world that thinks beer is grody?

Lo said...

Well, hells bells. Looks like you guys had a fine Krimmus... and you're looking fab. Keep up the good work!

Bethany said...

Your boobs are HUGE! And what cute little Heff's you have there! (i meant the boys... you know that right!)

DCD said...

Love the boys in their robes! And you too, you hot mama!!

Yay for a plus sized Christmas, sounds like a good time was had by all!

Aria said...

First of all, the boys are adorable. And as far as the body going to pot ~ Yeah. My kids are 8+ years apart and my hips spread 5 weeks into preggo #2. Your body NEVER recovers, even if it makes an outward show of doing so... And hey, on the plus side, you'll never need breast augmentation surgery... possibly a lift though later on... My girl got me from a C to a DD and they never went away ~ good luck there... Another plus side... even if the MIL pulls that plus size shit, you can still apparently hide behind the Christmas tree, so you can't be THAT big! Merry New Year's to you and the fam!

Swirl Girl said...

I think you look gorgeous!

(did you sneak a little bud, little bud?)

Jenners said...

Oh my gosh...my son has the SAME robe (am I right that it has Lightning McQueen on it?) and we call him Little Hugh Hefner!

Glad you had a good holiday! It is fun when the kids "get it" and really have a blast. Glad you could spoil them rotten!

Jen said...

I got MUCH bigger with my second pregnancy too--it was so different than my first!

Laura said...

The boys are too cute! I don't think I can handle cute belly pics, I can feel the baby fever creeping in!!

Aubrey said...

Oh Brittany! How glad am I that I found you!!

Who knew that you had 2 girls already?? They are lovely!

Really, you look great and very happy! Your boys are adorable!

Cheryl said...

My gut is bigger and I have not kids, LOL. You are a cute pregnant woman.

Practically Joe said...

Ha! You wore horizontal stripes! That's why you look so big. You can't fool me!
Oh wait. What's that behind you? Is it ... a tree? I really can't tell.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

I've only had beer bread once and I didn't like it. I think I'll try it again next time it's offered.

Carolyn...Online said...

I just got the mental image of a belly ring finally giving out under the pressure and popping off, pinging around the room.

Annie said...

I think you look hot!Congrats on making the Momdot list!

Brooke said...

Those are some giant bewbs. Just gotta say.

Beer bread sounds super yummy. You should have posted the recipe so I can steal it from you. But Budweiser? Really?

LuckyMe said...

Never a good idea to buy clothes for another adult. Sheesh!

Nipples to labia, haha, you sid it! Everything is stre-e-e-tchy, huh?

Happy New Year!!

Charity said...

Your boys are so freakin' cute and I love the little Hugh Hefner robes! The belly shot--awesome and your boobs--wow. Good thing I never got preggers or I would be in trouble. Glad the holidays were so much fun!

Amanda said...

Hope you have a great New Year!

Black Hockey Jesus said...

You said Christmas was the balls. That was sweet.

HappyHourSue said...

So, just so we're all in agreement: this post should have been titled:

"My Boobs Are Freakin Ginormous".

HappyHourSue said...

or, "Another One For the Boobs."

:)

Raging Dad said...

Brilliant, getting the matching Heff robes. I will totally get some of those for my boys next year!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

You look great! I love that your sons do not want to remove their robes- too cute. And I am cracking up at your photo "this is for the homies."

Tiffiney said...

Wait till you have number 4..if you do...your body is just not the same after wards....belly no longer sinks in...it flops out...just wish some of the boobs would have stayed around...darn it...

Elaine A. said...

Well you certainly have to continue to reproduce when you make cute kids like that! Damn! : )

That's some pretty awesome cleavage you have goin' on there too!

Am I allowed to say these things? Guess so!

Happy New Year!
