Christmas Eve

Jilda and I just had breakfast with her brother and his family this morning. After breakfast, the kids came over and baked Christmas cookies. It's something she's done for years.

She gets everything ready, and the kids gather around the table and decorate. It's a bit competitive. Breeze is 14 now and she still enjoys it along with her three younger sisters.

Keeping a house full of kids entertained is hard work. By the time they left, we were whupped.

After a nap, we cleaned up the house. There was about an inch of cookie decorating sugar stars, dots, and granules under the table. It crunched under my shoes as I walked to get the vacuum cleaner.

This evening, Jilda whipped up a batch of Christmas fettuccine and watch A Christmas Carol. We've seen the original version, but our favorite is one with Patrick Steward that was released a few years ago.

This evening, we turned out the overhead lights, put on Christmas music, and blissed out.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.


  1. It sounds like a tiring, but lovely day.
    Our Christmas Eve was busy, but today has been very much more low key - joyful and serene. I hope yours is too.

  2. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO you both. You are heroes to those kids we KNOW!
    Beautiful tree.

    Hugs, Julia
