Christmas 2009

Christmas has come and gone and despite my back causing problems, I think it was a success. Christmas Eve was at my apartment this year. I had a lot of fun planning and preparing for the dinner. Growing up Christmas Eve was a big deal. We always had a delicious dinner and the dining room always looked beautiful. My mom would have some sort of centerpiece that was pretty and festive. We'd use the nice dishes and silver and everyone would like nice. No Jeans. Christmas has changed a little over the years. We've gotten a little more relaxed but in recent years I've missed the Christmas Eves of years past. But I thought this year was very nice. We had a delicious dinner (Pat became a man and carved his first turkey), sang carols and just spent time together. This was probably the best Christmas I've had in a long time.

Merry Christmas Everyone. Hope you all had a fabulous time.
