This was Baby’s first Christmas.
He must have felt like there was something special about the day,
as he was wide awake an hour before his usual wake up time.
He enjoyed an early breakfast while his
Mama and Gigi enjoyed their morning coffee,
before anyone else was up.
His big brother came downstairs an hour later with a
bounce in his step to see what was in his stocking.
He also found much delight in helping the rest of us
see what Santa put in our stockings, too.
While it was Henry’s first Christmas,
this was the first year that Jack was really into the idea
of selecting gifts for others, wrapping them,
and putting them under the tree.
This Christmas was extra special,
as we weren’t able to celebrate together last year.
Travel was discouraged due to the Pandemic,
so most of us stayed in touch, virtually.
There’s nothing like wrapping your arms around
those grandchildren and giving them a hug…
Or hearing the squeals and laughter of grandchildren
playing with their family.
Mama’s Egg Bake was so tasty,
along with Cinnamon Rolls and Fresh Fruit.
This brunch will keep us satisfied until
our Afternoon Charcuterie.
It’s tough to to get excited about opening a gift
and finding clothing inside…
Perhaps you’ve heard the Rules for Gift Giving…
*Something they Want
*Something they Need
*Something to Wear
*Something to Read
*Something to Do
*Something for Family
We all enjoyed an afternoon of relaxing and
playing with our new toys…even the grown ups!
We sipped some Christmas Bubbly and noshed on Charcuterie
while we all helped prepare our Christmas Dinner.
Ham and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
Green Salad with Mandarin Oranges, Dried Cranberries,
Walnuts, and Shaved Parmesan.
After Dinner Jack watched another Christmas Movie,
We could hear him giggling in the living room
as we cleaned up the kitchen.
Before bed snack = Christmas Cookies
It’s hard to pick just one!
During the Christmas Season we celebrate the
Birth of the Christ Child and the most precious gifts of all,
Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love.
