Weekending | Christmas.

I was the last one to bed last night. Catching up on a few podcasts, casting on a new project, looking at the twinkling lights on the tree ... a welcome pause after a full weekend.

Saturday started dark early. I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't get back to sleep (just like a little kid, excited for Christmas!). I sat down on the sofa with a cup of coffee and finally finished a Christmas book.

Marc was up early too, and it was fun to be together in the kitchen. He made Nuts and Bolts (aka Chex Mix) while I started the cranberry conserve for the Christmas dinner cheesecake.

The highlight of the afternoon was the children's service at church with Katie and Charlie. He really enjoyed all the singing, ringing the bells for Hark the Herald Angels Sing

and the birthday cake afterwards.

Sara was here when I got back and we enjoyed a nice evening with Elf and snacks for dinner. Yesterday started a little later - which was good, because assembling toys is best when you're well-rested.

We had brunch at Katie's. Sara's Thomas the Train gift was a big hit.


They came here for dinner. Charlie loved eating in the dining room. (so did the rest of us).

And one final highlight

a surprise bloom for Christmas day!

I hope your weekend included only good surprises, too!

Wonderful photos! And, I love your amaryllis - I fear that mine will not be blooming at all this year. It is sad, but true! However, the paperwhites appear that they might!
