It's All Cleaned Up!

Christmas Eve, a Christmas brunch and then a big Christmas night meal and it’s all cleaned up and all but the last of the dishes that are still in the dish washer have been put away. I was up till 11:30 last night vacuuming and mopping the floors after every one left. My sister brought games this year and they were a big hit….we played trivia, “wheel of fortune” and “family feud”. She even had prizes and an auction with quite nice prizes…. I was fortunate enough to get a Barnes and Nobel gift card and a basket of stuff that included a mug and hot chocolate along with a bag of mini marshmallows. I later “sold” the marshmallows to my nephew for 5 pieces of candy (the bargaining chips) who wanted them for his 18 month old boy who loves marshmallows.

Today's photo is of the brunch I served on Christmas morning, I didn't really get any photos later in the day when we entertained about 12.

My house is back together again also. I love this week of having the decorations up and no pressure to do anything! Quite a release!
