A Photo Filled Christmas




We had a wonderful Christmas and the last two days have been eventful too, with lots and lots of family time. It has been so great having my daughters home and the quiet times watching movies on the couch have been just as fun as the busy times spent with extended family.




Christmas Eve started with brunch, followed by Mass and then quickly changing into Christmas pajamas and opening presents. We hosted Christmas Day dinner at our house and were festive with prosecco cocktails to toast the occasion. We had a wonderful dinner, then opened even more presents and played some games to end the night.




It seemed to be a selfie stick kind of Christmas too. We got two fabulous group shots; one from our family Christmas and one from our big group outing to play whirlyball ( a bumper car/lacrosse/basketball hybrid). We had teams designated by colored bandanas and lots of friendly competition. Both parents and children (all older now) played in a tournament format and my team came out on top in the championship round. We are a competitive, athletic bunch and it was loads of fun.

Happy Monday and hope your Christmas was filled with happiness too!
