An Amazing Christmas

I hope you had an extravagant Christmas on the lines of this house in our neighborhood and my favorite children's Christmas book The Amazing Christmas Extravaganza.

We were fortunate this year to have Katie with us and the house was packed with about 25 of our relatives. We missed seeing my sister-in-law and her family and 4 children. We also missed seeing my nephew David and his family but they had a good excuse; Jamie delivered a beautiful baby boy, Xavier, on Christmas Eve. He joins his two year old brother Peter. Photos to follow.

We had great food and a crazy time playing Trivial Pursuit, the original 1982 version! I remember driving to Canada to get the game. It was a huge hit and impossible to find except in Canada. So a bunch of us piled in the car and drove to Windsor!

The frenetic pace of the holidays is over and it's time to kick back, relax, and cram in as many movies as possible. So far, Sweeney Todd, P.S I Love You with Charlie Wilson's War and The Great Debaters still to see.

Katie is the proud owner of her very first, official car. She bought a red Saturn SL!!! She turns the Geo over to heer brother, who has been longing for "his" car back. Now we just have to get rid of the blue truck.

Wow! I missed your neighbor's house!

You gave me that book -- I love it, too!
