The Girl in front of the tree (which we took down on New Year’s Eve – was that too early?).
I can’t believe Christmas Eve was two weeks ago. Where does the time go? We had a nice holiday this year. My brother & SIL flew into O’Hare at around 5PM on Christmas Eve. The Kid and I went to pick them up. When I approached the airport I got a text from my brother saying they were still waiting for their luggage, so I decided to park in the hourly parking lot. I had no idea the lot was only $2/hour and that baggage claim is basically across the street from the garage.
Now I know!
I didn’t tell our visitors that I parked, so The Kid and I snuck up behind them. It was fun to see the recognition register on their faces when The Kid popped up in front of them. Once, they got their stuff, we headed home and all pitched in to get our dinner on the table.
I secretly think I’m Italian, so I like attempting to do The Feast of Seven Fishes every Christmas Eve. We only hit five this year, but we have several more future Christmas Eves to hit our seven. 🙂
