Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas from our house to yours. What did you do on the big holiday? Last evening, Danny and I attended Christmas Eve services and watched several classic holiday films. (My fav: A Christmas Story). We made very merry today, first at Amy's house for breakfast and to watch Alex enjoy his first Christmas. Check out my flickr pix. for some of the photos. Then, after dog walkin' and naps, I made a roast beef and pork loin Christmas dinner for Danny n me, Laura and her very soon to be husband, Paul. Danny made mulled apple cider and he and I drank way too much but it was very good.
Was "Santa" good to you? I got some way cool gifts, including but not limited to: a Digital Speaker System, which charges my iPhone, works with the iPod and plays all my music (from Danny), a dog agility training set (from Amy and Elias) and the object pictured with me in the second picture. Yes, folks, my very own "Leg Lamp" as seen in my favorite Christmas movie mentioned above. This one was from laura and Paul.
The best gift of all was being able to enjoy the holiday with family and talking via phone with absent but dear to our hearts family in Georgia and New York.
Included, a Christmas poem . Peace, and good will to all.
Christ child's coming, bringing hope and grace
Holly and green mistletoe and joy on every face
Reindeer leading Santa's sleigh across a moonlit sky
Icy lanes and frozen ponds with skaters whizzing by
Singing songs and carols around a sparkling tree
Tapers glowing softly on gifts for you and me
Memories of Christmas past with those we wish were near
chuckling at fond ancedotes and brushing back a tear
Angels watching newborn babe and wisemen from afar
Smiling in the silent night beneath a golden star.
