Didn't our Christmas tree look nice? (It's a real one. We'll probably try to have a live tree until we are too old to be able to deal with it.)
Tess did not seem terribly disappointed that Santa brought her a penguin rather than WMDs ...
The boys were thrilled to get their very own Cozy Cushion (Tess will not share hers - don't even think about it!): This picture was taken after a brief scuffle as to who would sit on it first. Which of course resulted in no one actually sitting on it ...
I received a lot of knitting books, among other nice things, and The Tim and the kitties bought me an MP3 player. Which was a coincidence, since Santa brought one for The Tim as well! The Tim was nice enough to have mine all set up, ready to use right away. (Santa, like me, did not have a clue as to how to get it set up, so The Tim also had to figure out his own ...) I had never asked for an MP3 player, but I do love mine, so it was a nice surprise in more ways than one. It also led to this conversation:
Me: This is so cool - now if I can figure it out, I can listen to knitting podcasts.
The Tim: It figures this would somehow end up involving knitting.
We had a great day, talked to friends and family, and generally made sure to eat, drink, and be merry. (Not that we've stopped doing that. Yet.) But this picture pretty much sums up how we all felt by the end of the day.
I hope your day was as great!
