Despite the fact that I was depressed the day before Christmas, our celebrations turned out great. The annual eleven o’clock service at Third Presbyterian on Christmas Eve put me back in the Christmas mood. Christmas morning, Tracy and I got up, read the papers, and went to breakfast at Mykynos. At four o’clock his extended family arrived for dinner, frivolity, and opening of gifts. Grandma’s fun gifts to everyone was 20Q, which provided a lot of entertainment.
Finally on Tuesday, we had our Christmas. Sarah and Adam didn’t arrive in Buffalo until 12:20 on Tuesday morning. By the time we got to bed, it was close to 2, so no one was up any too early. It’s not as exciting as it was when they were little, but it’s still really good. Love my kids, love my husband, love the holidays.
