twas a lovely and i must say rather exhausting Christmas this year! we started celebrating on the Eve with the McHale family over. it was fabulous night...having everyone together, staying up late, catching up and just being together....if only we could get Mike and Kelly in town it would be even more fabulous! Anyhow, I do just love how Christmas is a reason for us all to hang out, a reason to eat too many mint chocolate cookies, a reason to stay up waaay too late and be deleriously tired but full of glee all the same, and so many other reasons i could go on and on.
Then on to New Years; a very quiet one this year indeed. We went to mass (where Ruby was having some real difficulty with her quiet voice), ordered italian food, and went home to watch 'Miracle on 34th St' as a fam...listening to Ruby say Ho Hoooo (her code word for Santa). I lamely fell asleep with Ruby while Ed stayed up for Harry Potter and woke me to say Happy New Year.
A great year indeed. Many thanks and so many blessings. Here's to making 2010 even better!
