a cozy day after Christmas

Thursday, December 29, 2016

a favorited tradition for us, we spend the day after Christmas with very best friends and their two sweet babes.  this year we brunched on little smokies and delicious monkey bread, mushroom and brie soup and rosemary sourdough bread -- all while playing, present opening, and chatting away with Peanuts Christmas or the Grinch  true holiday classics playing in the background.  and of course there was the replaying of the Christmas story "you'll shot your eye out scene".  boys will be boys and a bb gun is just all too exciting to not enjoy during Christmas I suppose.

Children on Christmas, well that my dear friends is where the real joy and magic lies.  Their tiny smiles and curious grins and happy hearts -- contagious and beautiful and pure.  We are lucky to have friends who let us play and love on their children, while we wait for our own to add to the mix.

Our evening was quiet and cozy in front of our Christmas tree, or rather snuggled on the couch with fuzzy slippers and our corgi girl-- with ham and all the sides, for just us two.  a day after jolly ol' feast, indeed.

merry merry
