Chirstmas Day Home Alone

I know my kids are worried about what we did on Christmas.(It was our first time alone.) We sat in our Mother and Father places and had Cornish game hens.

We moved some bookcases into the den where the piano was  (we took it to our grandchildren who want to take piano lessons) and I put all my nativities on it except the new one I got for my birthday. It is on the mantel. I'm not going to do this next year, but I just wanted to see them all together.
Here is the one Jenny sent me. I want to get some candles for it for next year.

Then we had to rearrange the furniture in the guest room after we took the bookcases out. I still have 8 boxes of books that need a new home.
Courtney and I were alone one year on Christmas.That was a while ago..1993.

An Overheard Conversation

Z is 6. He has 3 little brothers. He is a very good big brother and very helpful to his Mom and Dad. He knows a lot about babies.

His cousin, I is also 6, but he is the baby in his family. He was interested in Z's latest little brother and was discussing babies with his very experienced cousin. He learned a lot: They spit up. They poop and pee. They sneeze and snot goes everywhere. They get boogers in their eyes. And don't forget, they cry a lot.
