Christmas weekend

We had a wonderful Christmas. :-)

Saturday, Christmas Eve, was a relaxing, stay-at-home day. We all watched "A Muppet Christmas Carol" in the late afternoon. In the evening Cat'r and I listened to some Nat King Cole Christmas music. Cookies and milk out for Santa, then to bed EARLY (I was tired!).

Sunday, Christmas Day: Wow, we had a big Christmas! Lots of CDs, DVDs, books--our favourite things. :-D We had on soft Christmas music while we opened things. I got all the sets (well, one more on the way still) of the Jeremy Brett "Sherlock Holmes" series! Woohoo! And "Serenity" (widescreen, of course). And the Morrissey concert DVD, "Who Put the M in Manchester?". :-) Lotsa books, lotsa CDs. Bunnicula collects Bratz dolls, so s/he got some of that stuff. :-) There were also Sanrio goodies, some clothes, a Rubik's Cube (for meeee! yay! I wonder what ever happened to my old one?), various cute and unexpected things, and two Ganesh statues! After we finished opening things, Cat'r and I watched most of the Morrissey DVD. Then I fixed cinnamon rolls, a tradition with us. After that phone calls came in, I had a light lunch, etc. In the mid-afternoon B. fixed turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, broccoli in cheese sauce, etc.! We all watched "Christmas in Connecticut" (1945--B/W movie starring Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan). Later on Cat'r read me A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, from the hardback version he gave me as a present this year. :-) I knitted while he read. Then after he finished reading to me, I put on some soft holiday music, and I knitted and he read. Very cozy and nice. :-)

Monday, the 26th: Cat'r and I watched the movie "The Hours" (I have SO MANY movies on used DVD that I haven't gotten to yet!) on my little portable DVD player. Interesting movie! Great performances! Cat'r went back down to Louisville in the afternoon. ::sniff::

But we had a wonderful holiday. :-) :-)
