Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful holiday filled with family and friends. Wednesday night my mother and I watched my sister's chorus sing along with the Compton Heights Band at Powell Symphony Hall.

Yesterday Scott and I baked and knit ornaments all day* and then celebrated with his family that evening. I woke up this morning after, oh, 4 hours of sleep and finished up 2 ornaments. I love the quiet of Christmas pre-dawn and then the quiet slumbering of Christmas night. Our building, normally full of sounds, is so quiet right now except the howling wind outside.

This morning we had enough snow for a white Christmas, but not enough to stick. We spent the morning at my sister's house celebrating her birthday and having a wonderful Christmas brunch. In the afternoon we gorged ourselves on cookies, cheese, quiche, wassail, roasted chestnuts and cheesecakes with the knitters.

*I neglected to get a picture of a single ornament. I KNOW.
