Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve was spent in a flurry of park-playing, cookie baking, frantic cleaning/laundry doing, getting dressed in our Christmas best and going to church (note to self: next year, follow Anne's advice and go at midnight...4pm was a circus with not nearly enough seats), and ending with a lovely dinner with Will's extended family. Predictably, Tony and Alessandra hit their limit shortly after the presents came out, and Will and I had a migraine inducing lovely time putting them to bed. No worries, I'm sure they will be totally chill tomorrow morning after a mountain of presents, panettone, and candy from the stockings. Yep. No meltdowns in our future, no siree.
Look at all those presents...what could possibly go wrong??
The merriest of Christmases to everyone. As cheesy as this may sound, one of the best presents I could have ever asked for was getting to know and love the readers of my blog. I may not have a huge, or even large,  following, but I've come to know, love, and look forward to reading your comments, reading your own blogs, and getting to know you guys outside of the blogosphere (did I spell that wrong? Probably. I'm drinking an eggnog and brandy and have zero desire to look up the correct spelling of a made-up word). Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, and if you haven't introduced yourself to me already, please do so. I love meeting new people, and I'm always looking for new blogs to read.

  1. Merry Christmas!

    We did Midnight Mass, partially because I wanted to go to the preceding carol service and partly because W's bedtime conflicted with the earlier service. I think it worked out best -- there were still meltdowns today, but at least they've both been super sleepy for naps, and although both us parents are exhausted we don't have as much baby-wrangling which is leaving more time for port & cheese! It was rough getting them both out of bed and ready for Mass, however, so I'm not entirely sold on the super late time with two littles.

    1. Merry Christmas to you as well!! :)

      Yeah, we were kind of in the "there's really no good time to go to Mass with two little ones" boat. There was the 4pm, 7pm and midnight times, and since we were having a big dinner with my husband's family, 7pm wouldn't have worked. I think next year we'll try midnight, but just bring the kids in their Christmas jammies. :) Hope you all have a wonderful day!
