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!
