Christmas seemed to sneak up on me this year. I usually have my cards done and sent out the first week of December, all the presents bought by week two... but my cards went out really late and I was still shopping on the 23rd!
There were doctor's appointments, and dentist appointments, and one of the busiest seasons at work, and a new grand baby, and snow, and ice... but we were able to get everything done just in time.
We ended up getting a good amount of snow (for our area) on the 18th, then more on the 21st. Then the temps dropped into the teens and everything was covered with ice!
Beth had a party to go to and after DART picked her up they called to cancel her ride!
Chuck helping her out to the bus
Too late! So we ended up canceling her return ride and we just picked her up ourselves. Chuck drives city buses in this stuff for a living so this was nothin' for him.
Our yard and street covered with a layer of ice. We had it very mild compared to other parts of the country!
We went to Sharaya's on the 24th to give Ally her traditional Christmas Eve pajamas. It's been a tradition in our family for more than 30 years.
Chuck, Beth and I had a quiet Christmas morning. Beth was a little concerned about the change in the Christmas routine this year but she was pretty happy when it was all over. She even played Santa and handed out the gifts.
You can see what I got on the coffee table, a turntable! I had one quite a few years ago but it died. I'm so excited to be able to play my records again! Oh wait, they're called vinyls now. I'm excited to play my vinyls!
It was around noon when we headed to Diana and Peter's. We played trivia, opened a few gifts, had a delicious Italian dinner and everyone held Adelaide! 💖
The Brunos and the Andersons. The Brundersons!
Ally and Sharaya. And Poppy
Me and my granddaughters. It was the best day!!
