And Merry Christmas from Wisconsin!
J, Cole and I arrived at my parents’ house yesterday around 4 p.m. And since then, truthfully, we haven’t done a whole lot. It’s taking me a lot longer to bounce back from having the flu than I anticipated, so I slept in AND took a nap and have been Googling my random lingering symptoms (don’t do that — bad idea). My brother had to work at the restaurant in the Cities last night and then made the trip down after his shift. So once he arrived around 5 a.m. this morning, the whole family is finally here!
We’ve also been observing all sorts of wildlife — including a family of deer and some wild turkeys.
And my mom really outdid herself this year by baking seven different types of insanely delicious Christmas cookies/bars/scones.
And my aunt and uncle sent an amazing Wolferman’s/Harry and David spread that we’ve been sampling.
So there’s no shortage of yummy treats. Just waiting for my appetite to return so I can truly enjoy it all 🙂
Tomorrow we’ll open presents and have a big breakfast before heading to my Great Aunt’s house.
How have your travels, feasts, Christmas traditions, etc been going so far?
