After the fragrant oven stuffing was cooked at our house, and the creamed onion casserole wrapped up and ready to travel, we headed over to the kids place just in time to take the turkey out of the oven over there, and carve it, so it would be ready for Christmas Dinner the next day.
Cold germs were giving us a royal battle, but we armed ourselves with cold meds, and marched headlong into the fight. I put on the sparkliest outfit in my cupboard, grabbed my camera, and went in search of some warm Christmas memories to capture.
|This will do nicely for starters...both kids waiting patiently by the fireplace. I wonder who they are looking for?|
|We gave the kids a small toy to open on Christmas Eve, and Danica worked hard to get hers to work. It was supposed to light up and sing when you got it spinning fast enough. |
|I think this tells the tale on how JJ was feeling.|
|I wonder if Danica is listening for something or someone coming down the chimney?|
|Even Asha, the cat, joined us for this picture.|
|In spite of the coughs and colds, we had fun on Christmas Eve. |
|JJ showed us some of his Power Ranger fighting moves.|
|Danica was thrilled with her new PJ's|
|JJ was pleased with his too.|
|Time for a pose in their new duds...|
|...before snuggling down on the kid's couch to watch The Polar Express.|
