A Great Christmas

I don’t know what it was about the holidays this year but there was something magical in the air. We had Meme and Loring with us on Christmas morning, the kids of course were beside themselves with excitement!

We went to Mass the night before which was great. I’m not a Catholic and not sure if I ever will be, but certainly lately I’ve been feeling the need for something a bit deeper and more meaningful in my life. I’m not sure of church will be it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a tradition I hope we will continue for many years ahead. The service was interesting, I felt welcomed, and it felt good to be part of a diverse community - mixing with people of all ages which is not something we often get to do. Oliver slept through the entire thing and Lola was captivated!

Christmas Day began with gifts and breakfast. This year I felt more organized than in past years and don’t feel we overdid it on the gifts. Lego is starting now to click with Oliver and it’s great to see him so absorbed. Lola got a wee kitchen (which Oliver loves too) and a toy piano so she can pound away when I’m practicing.

Cerentha, Brian and Morgan came for dinner, together with Cerentha’s and Brian’s kids Jack and Lu. Dinner - roast lamb went on for a good six hours - perfect. Good wine, great company. I think the fact that the kids are older just makes it all the more easier and more fun too, as you get to dive into the traditions of Christmas together.
