We celebrated Christmas Day -- and our anniversary. (We married the day after Christmas 36 years ago.) Yesterday, we, the girlies and Son #1 had our Christmas, opening presents and playing Scrabble. We celebrated our anniversary with Jumanji (surprisingly good -- better than the new Star Wars movie!) and lunch with friends.
Celebrating the holidays may have been different than other years, but it was just as nice. Going back to work -- now that's not as much fun. Just a few more days until New Year's Eve...
