Christmas Festivities - Part 2

Lucky us -- we had two Christmases this year! 
 
 
 
A couple days after Christmas, we went to my son's house
for Christmas with his sweet wife and kids.
 
 
 
It was so much fun! 
The kiddos are growing fast and so so sweet!
 
 
 
Philip and Catherine made yummy Mexican food. 
 Mr. Tennis went nuts for the enchiladas -- they were extremely delish!  
Everything was so good!
 
 
Maddy had suggested we start having a "talent show"
after the gift-giving, so we gave it a try!
 
 
Results = hilarious!!
 
Connor did a yoyo trick!
 
Mr. Tennis had no ideas so Maddy and I suggested he be "Mr. Napkinhead." 
 Yes, we had recently watched "The Holiday." 
He was very funny.  I was busy filming, so couldn't get any photos
 of the contestants but, believe me, we were all laughing our heads off!
 
Philip did a magic trick -- how did he make that quarter disappear?
Catherine played the piano -- so lovely -- one of my fave songs -- theme from Cheers!
 
Maddy and I did our own rendition of "Call Me Maybe."   If I didn't know it already, the video confirmed, I have no sense of rhythm. 
 
While the littles napped, Maddy and I played Scattergories
with Philip and Catherine.  What a fun game! 
And Maddy and I introduced Philip and Catherine to one of 
our all-time favorite shows, DC Cupcakes. 
 
 
 
Thanks again to Philip and Catherine for hosting us. 
It was a blast and made Christmas so special.

Love the idea of a talent show! That would definitely spice up a holiday. The Mexican food is making me hungry for some. Happy New Year!
