I didn’t make my usual 7:00 am posting time today. You see, I usually write my posts a day in advance and then they are ready for posting in the morning. But the weekend was such a whirlwind of Christmas activity that I never got a chance. Forgive me for being late?
Our Christmas was wonderful. Family and friends gathered at our home on Christmas Eve to eat and celebrate with us. We had traditional Swedish foods, of course, and mostly just spent the evening enjoying everyone’s company.
Christmas morning got off to a slow start. You know you have a teenager when she doesn’t even got up until 9 am on Christmas! We spent the morning opening gifts, drinking coffee and eating leftovers. Then we spent the afternoon leisurely preparing the prime rib and some side dishes for dinner at my father-in-law’s house. Thirteen of us gathered for an early evening dinner and it was so nice to have everyone together at the same table! The food was fabulous, everyone helped and it was a great meal.
Let’s see. What’s left to tell you? Oh, my gifts. I got some wonderful things from Dale and the kids and other family members. In the end, everything fit in my new, gigantic L.L. Bean bag.
Well, everything except this.
My new Hitchhiker Wheel. Thanks, Dale.
