We had a mighty fine Christmas with both sides of our families congregating at our house. About the only thing that went wrong on Christmas Day was that the hydrangeas in my center piece wilted. I have a hard time with hydrangeas. Can't grow them, and obviously can't even keep them alive in an arrangement. Oh well, out of the many things that could have gone wrong, I'm glad it was only that.
Since then we've been sleeping in, making coffee (rare), having cups of chai, snacking on streusel that my sister made from our Oma's recipe, reading good books, and writing thank you notes. The slower pace after Christmas is one thing I enjoy.
We're having leftovers for dinner (another rarity) and will probably light a fire and watch an old movie together tonight. Cozy family relaxation. Love it!
