Christmas 2017

Another wonderful Christmas is in the books. We missed the California Family this year but the ballerina was busy performing in not one but two Nutcracker ballets. She was Mother Ginger in her school's performance and King Mouse with the Oakland Ballet Company. She spent several days  including Christmas Eve dancing.

The Chick came into town on Wednesday and we planned out meals and did the shopping. (What a great help) I was pleased when she wanted to get yarn to knit a baby sweater. There isn't a more satisfying way to spend a snowy holiday than to cuddle up and work on knitting.

The NorDak Family arrive Friday and we decided with all the decorating I had done around the house previously, we could forgo having a tree this year in order to have kittens who didn't electrocute themselves!

I was relieved to have SadieLou around to make Chex Mix and decorate cookies.
We enjoyed putting puzzles together, playing cards and renew an interest in Mexican Train Dominoes.
It took jitterbugging in the kitchen to Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, in order to get the kiddos out of bed on Christmas morning. They had a great time opening gifts and could hardly believe.....

Grandkitty Zoey had a great time playing with her little shadow Polly,
The gingers taking a break before the next rumpus
 and Denali was her usual cheerful self hiding under the covers or bed the entire holiday...
