Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone! Its bright and early this Christmas morning. Soon the kids will be awake and it will be time to open the presents. Frankly, I am surprised they slept in this late, but they have never really risen all that early on Christmas morning. They certainly are better sleepers than I was or am.

Last night we celebrated a nice Christmas Eve. We attended mass at our local church at 6:00 pm. Luckily, I had my awesome Prime Rib recipe at work and the beef was resting/cooking away in the oven and ready along with the baked potatoes upon our return.

The kids were quite anxious, more so than this morning, to open their presents. It turned into a fairly quick meal and we adjourned to open the gifts. It sure doesn’t take long to open a stack of gifts!

Okay, I hear some stirring, I better run and prep the family room and the tree.

Merry Christmas to you and yours and best wishes for a happy New Year!
