While the date on the calendar may have said December 27th, we still felt the Christmas spirit in our hearts ♥ and minds ∞!
Late this aft, we gathered at my parents’ to enjoy our (belated) family Christmas celebration. Let’s establish atmosphere:
This year we each received a book as our table gift. I squealed with glee over mine: the novel Freedom by Jonathan Franzen – from my list!
Santa gifted me such varied stocking stuffers as cosy socks, a hardcover knitting pattern book (!), organic cinnamon, a toothbrush, tea towels…Santa has a good imagination and makes good choices!
A merry ol’ time had we!…
Thanks to my family’s generosity, I’ll be able to choose a recipe from the Joy of Cooking, chop/mash/whip ingredients in my Black and Decker Food Processor, and fry up whatevers in my non-stick frypan! I look forward to experimenting!
Happily, the girls’ knits were a hit!
So while this Christmas may go down in the family chronicles as “the Christmas of innovation and flexibility,” tonight was a solidly joyful celebration.
Formals for the record book:
Much love and thanks to each member of my family. xoxo!
And that’s a Christmas Wrap for 2010!
