Christmas Wrap-Up!

Hi Friends -- time for a quick Christmas wrap-up!

We had the kids and the littles at our house this year 
and it was
so fun! 
Since Mr. Tennis was recovering from his latest ailment, we 
decided to keep it very casual.  
Ok, I admit it, also, I am not the best cook or very organized, so . . . 
we ordered pizza for our Christmas Eve celebration!
I did prepare my famous Mexican Dip - - which was gobbled
up by all during the short time I was out picking up the pizza!
Even little Janie loved it! :)

It was such a relaxing holiday.
Everyone enjoyed the time together
and seemed to love their gifts.
Maddy received a selfie-extender and it worked great
for the photo above! 
Am afraid it might have been the most popular gift and everyone wanted one!
Go figure! :)

We went to Christmas Eve mass at 5 PM and
enjoyed seeing the luminaries on our block glowing 
softly when we returned home.

On Christmas Day, our low-key celebration continued with Connor
joining us mid-morning for a Christmas lunch.
Hey, I actually did cook while watching the Frozen Celebration from Disney World,
and made chicken enchiladas - Feliz Navidad! 
Rainbow sherbet topped off the meal
and then everyone enjoyed movie and nap time!
It really was a super relaxing day -- just what the doctor ordered.
Hope your holiday was fun and relaxing too!

It sounds like a wonderful celebration. Sometimes low-key is the best. I would love to have that recipe for the Mexican Dip.
