A merry Christmas and a snowy Boxing Day

Christmas was as delightful as could be. We rose late, brunched on quiche, and once Bryce joined us, sat cozily in the living room opening gifts and enjoying each other’s company. In early afternoon Amy and Carol arrived, completing the party for the day. We pulled together a tasty raclette dinner followed by games, pie & ice cream, and hours of conversation interspersed with family calls.

The forecast was nasty so Amy and Carol left before it got too late to drive home, and the rest of us settled in for a movie and bedtime. By the time we awoke, the world was a magical winter wonderland.

I ventured out to the bagel shop (which was miraculously open) and Justin walked down from his place. But otherwise it was a morning perfect for brewing hot chocolate and watching the birds at the feeder.

Eventually it was time to take Amanda to the airport, which was a snowy but uneventful drive (thank heavens for Subarus!). And a few hours after that, it was time to go back and pick her up—all flights having been canceled in the meantime. So although the “holiday” part is technically over—it’s back to work tomorrow for Justin and me—we’re really glad that Amanda isn’t stranded in the airport, and looking forward to a couple more bonus days of her company!

    Christmas sounds wonderful!
    Snow all around is divine! SO beautiful.
    And I’m glad Amanda has a nice place to stay while “stuck”, rather than the airport.
