Christmas Eve

The Christmas Eve breakfast with family was delightful this morning. The chefs had taken my condition into consideration and had several things I could eat.  After exchanging gifts Jilda and I walked back home.

A while later, the great nieces and nephews  came over to make more Christmas Cookies.  After that, while they waited for their parents, the went outside to play.

We have a dogwood in our yard that is one of the biggest ones I've ever seen. These kids have played in that tree all their lives. Jilda wrote a short story about The Magic Tree that she's read to them all. It's a special place they love.

Today, I interrupted them for a moment and grabbed a picture.

It's been a good day. Tonight as I write this, Jilda has fixed fettuccine and we're opening a bottle of prosecco.

I hope do day has been kind to you.
