Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Christmas Number One

It's not every year that we have the opportunity to have THREE Christmas celebrations -- but we are having that chance this year. Yesterday was our first Christmas. Torrey and Chris came on Friday night -- we met up at Alfie's as usual. Since there really aren't any Christmas Eve services on December 17, we opted to go to Beijing as usual on Saturday night, then head to Cantera to see The Nativity -- just about as good a Christmas "Eve" service as it gets. Tim didn't have to work either Saturday or Sunday, so he decided to spend the night at our house so we could do Christmas according to all the traditions....

Including the new tradition in which we all eat lots of hors d'oeuvres throughout the day instead of me cooking. Ah, that's a LOVELY tradition!

We watched the Bears game -- whew, they WON!

We played the Amazing Race game which we gave Torrey & Chris. It was a bit confusing at first, but we finally got the hang of it. It is rather odd playing a board game on a board and on TV as well.... We watched the movie Elf. And snacked all day....

Several of Tim's Taylor friends came over in the evening...

It was a lovely day.

And we still have two more celebrations to go!!
