Christmas Past

Today being the 25th and I saw a Christmas tree on the Yarn Harlots' Blog (reading in Dec - I'm behind there, too) I started to think about what has happened around here over the Holidays.

On Christmas Eve I actually made dinner rolls (from SCRATCH no less) and we had our big dinner at Mom's. On Christmas Day: played with the Grand-Girls (on the floor, too and really, really enjoyed it!); didn't stress over any kind of 'schedule'; relaxed at Mom's at the end of the day and didn't have a big dinner mess to clean up (no one was very hungry after the big, delicious meal my daughter-in-law made - we snacked); - all in all it was a very restful day.

The photo is our new, much smaller tree. The one we had (and gave away) was too tall for our ceilings in this small house so smaller was in order. A perfect fit on top of the window chest and high enough to discourage the cat from munching on the branches - although I had to put enough boxes (even empty for a while) to fill in under the tree so he couldn't get up there!

As much as I love the Holidays - I am glad they are over for another year!
