…It was a wonderful day!
Josh and Laura arrived just after midnight and tucked themselves in for the night. We woke up on Christmas morning to familiar Christmas music. Dear mixed up his Swedish pancakes and we had Judy’s famous bacon wrapped smokies along side. Yum.
We opened up our gifts to each other saving the rest for our 2nd Christmas on Saturday. We will have the whole crew here on Friday night and Saturday to enjoy all our Christmas traditions once more.
Dinner was the usual prime rib and Yorkshire pudding with added roasted root vegetables and Brussels sprouts. We had Betty’s Cinnamon Bun Cake for dessert.
Thankfully before the kids loaded up their car for home we remembered to take a photo by the tree.
Today I’m preparing for Katie and Andrew’s arrival this evening. The fun will continue all week long. Tomorrow is our Katie’s 27th birthday…27 on the 27th. I guess I better bake a cake.
Happy Boxing Day to all our friends in Canada and the U.K.!

Sounds like such a wonderful week!
Isn’t is fun when the celebration goes on and on? Love it!
A wonderful Christmas — everything looks so beautiful and the food inviting and delicious. Happy (early) birthday to Katie!
Testing to see if my new laptop allows me to (finally) comment on your blog. 😀
So far — it works — but it’s not signing me in as LaTeaDah — but hopefully you’ll know that this is me from Gracious Hospitality.
Loads of goodness well savored! Praying for safe travels for your birthday girl.
Merry on, Folks, Merry on! (Everything looks delightfully cozy at your house.)
Hoping you have a wonderful time as the rest of them arrive. Happy Birthday to Kate and keep celebrating…How wonderful to be able to share with your family during this Christmas week. What a great way to extend Christmas.
