We had a great and wonderful Happy Christmas.


It was everything a Family New England should be(and isn't that really the standard, even for a southerner like me)?


- We had 12 people nicely spaced around a big old brick house, with the coffee and popcorn and fireburning around the clock...
- we went to a stone church built in 1846 for midnight services and ended it in candlelight on christmas eve,
- we had a big brunch and a bigger dinner, we got silly presents, and some expensive ones thrown in...
- the children got so much they couldn't sleep right for days...
- santa visited (on a firetruck, apprently a new england thing) and scared Grace and excited James...
- we've talked and laughed and taken mucho pictures...
- we went to one of the most exclusive restaurants in NYC (the four seasons)...
- we went to radio city music hall christmas spectacular (in which James shook his hands and screamed in delight, if he isn't a famous linebacker, he might be a dancer or santa anyway)...
- we walked though rockefeller center late at night and heard the bells of st. patricks as we gazed on the huge tree...

aside from the fact that I have a nasty cold, we are having an awesome christmas.

i will post more later, but here is one of my favorites...my boy, having an excellent time...
