That In-Between Time

I love the last week of the year. It's that calm-after the storm sort of thing....where there's always leftovers in the 'fridge and no one really has to be anywhere or do anything.

This was a different Christmas...but fun. All the chicks were home to roost- but in a semi-permanent state. AJ and Anna-Grace were at her mom's house for Christmas Eve and so it was Alix and I first thing on Christmas.

Before anything "began" we grabbed coffee and turned on the traditional "always on in the background" continuous loop of that Christmas staple "A Christmas Story". Still funny as hell, no matter how many times I see it.

Proper headgear donned, Alix telephones Wesley to wake him up..

Cruisegran always has clever and much-appreciated prezzies...

North Face Jacket. Score!!!

Then "GJ" came over in their jammies around 11am for stockings and prezzies...

Anna-Grace's custom-designed running shoes. Sooooo HER!!!

Molly found her master and mistress wearing those silly hats too much to take.......

Wesley came over around 1pm....

And another round of prezzies ensued.

AJ experimented with some bacon, onions and brussel sprouts (never a bad combination...)

The Beef Wellington came out perfect--yes, PERFECT...

There couldn't have been a better way to end the day!
