A Great Day

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! I hope that you and your family did too.

There were gifts.

My dear husband got me a gold bracelet, among other things. He's so thoughtful!

One of the gifts that I got for him was a book, Big Chuck!, that's about a Cleveland television personality. Ted used to watch him quite often when he was young, and I knew this would remind him of his happy childhood.
It was also a day of family.

My aunt collects Annalee ornaments and figures. She received one from one of my cousins as a gift. She was very happy with it.
It was definitely a day of food. (We're still stuffed!) I have a fabulous cousin who stepped right in to rinse dishes while his fiancee put them in the dishwasher. He told me to not even THINK about doing any dishes, as I had cooked everything. (He's going to make a great husband!) Then he washed everything that didn't fit while his sister and fiancee dried them.

They make such a cute couple, don't they?

Another cousin and her husband were here too.

As were my parents. I'm so lucky to have such great parents. What I'm really lucky about, though, is that my dad actually stopped for a second so I could take a picture of the two of them. His comment was very simply, "Well if you're going to take a picture, you better hurry up." So I did.

It was a great day, filled with food, gifts, and family.

And today? Well, it was a day of REST!

Glad you had a very nice Christmas. I got lots of snow so I did too!

I left comments on all that I hadn't posted on before so its quite a few -- maybe a dozen or so . . .

Happy New Year!
