Wow – that went by quickly! Today Tom is back to work and I am going to take down the Christmas decor. After Christmas, I am just ready, you know? I do add snowmen and keep up the twinkle lights until it’s socially acceptable to do a bit of Valentine’s decor!
I am linking up today with Heather, etc. for Hello Monday!
Let’s go back to last Thursday night. We went to dinner and a play as a family. Mason had been sick most of the week and then Jack got it. They were Covid negative and it was just a cold with a cough. But, we had to mask up for the play so I thought it would be o.k.
I wore a new Loft blouse, my faux fur vest, velvet leggings, and dressier suede booties.
I ordered the buffalo grilled chicken sandwich.
The play was a bust and we left at intermission. Oh well – I thought some small local theatre would be a fun and seasonal thing to do.
I enjoyed lots of patio time over the weekend!
I walked by myself and with Ernie. He found a very large stick and tried to bring it home.
I just couldn’t finish. It was kinda cute at first but then the cheesiness just got to be too much.
For Christmas Eve, we decided not to go to in person church because of the coughing that J and M were doing. Also, Mason got the Covid booster that day. Jack decided to wait because he left his card at college and because he was still in the throes of his cold.
I did fondue and it was a lot of work.
And, I made salmon, potato salad, and broccoli for dinner.
We had a nice Christmas morning. Jack got a new guitar that was hidden.
Mason wore his Eve pancake pants.
Jack got another pair of Jack Skellington pants.
They loved the quilts! I didn’t think they would be as excited as they were.
It was 70 degrees and I enjoyed my mimosa on the patio after we opened gifts.
Tom always puts magazines in my stocking.
Tom’s parents came and we stayed outside. Unfortunately, his sister’s family was exposed to Covid and they stayed home.
We ended Christmas Day with a fire!
The day after Christmas, yesterday, we traveled an hour to my mom’s house and I made wintertinis for my sisters and I.
We did a white elephant/Dirty Santa that was really fun, in addition to opening our real gifts.
Whew! I’m tired! How was your holiday?
I hope it was wonderful!
