Christmas Is Here!

After weeks of preparations and anticipation, Christmas is here!

Today, Monday, we began food preparation for our Christmas Eve family dinner. We'll have turkey and all the trimmings. We'll have candlelight and crystal. We'll do fancy. I thank my family for letting me host Christmas Eve. For me it is the magic time. 

It will be the six of us: the two of us, our two kids, and our two grand kids. And it will be the same six who gather at Jill's house Christmas morning, for breakfast, gift opening, and a slower, more casual day. 

We are fortunate to have our loved ones near to us. We are grateful for our blessings. 

From our house to yours, we wish you the very best holiday season. May you experience love and joy. 

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays!

  5. You guys know how to do Christmas right. No need for just one day. Hope your dinner was a happy and fun occasion and that your Christmas day is just as wonderful at Jill's.

  9. You are so lucky to have your family close. We have to travel, but not far, just far enough to make a trip.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
