Christmas Festivities!

Didn't Christmas just sneak up on you this year? 
It sure did at our house!

On Christmas Eve, Mr. Tennis returned from a  quick trip to Illinois to visit his family.
We were so happy to have him home again!

The weather was frightfully cold, snowy, icy and Maddy came down with
quite a sore throat/cough-type virus -- boohoo!
We all had it one at a time throughout the month and called it
"The Christmas Cold!"

What was I thinking -- we dressed alike???

After mass on Christmas Eve and setting out our luminaries,
we had a yummy homemade Stromboli for dinner
and opened one gift - or was it two?

Maddy was up at 4:30 AM on Christmas morning --
to find the Cookie dog that Santa left for her!  
We had a low key but lovely day and I cooked and cooked and cooked --
which is so not typical for me! 
We missed Philip and Catherine and the littles,
but spent the 27th with them celebrating again --
update on that celebration to come!

It looks like you had a great Christmas Eve! Of course, I love, love, love the matching vests!

Hope everyone feels better soon! We have more than the Christmas Cold here. We have the Christmas FLU! Boo hoo!

Hurry up, Spring!
