Post Christmas

We didn't get home till midnight Christmas night. A very full day since we left our house at 7:30am. Went to bed tired and happy. Spent the 26th cleaning and preparing for our week at the hideaway, which was postponed for a day. It's all good though because hopefully we'll just extend it another day at the end. All depends on work schedules though. This time we're taking our kitty, who has never been up there because she doesn't seem to like car travel much. She's a very mellow cat though, so hopefully she'll relax soon enough. We're certain that she'll like being with us for the week rather than by herself.

Here are a few pics of our Christmas day:
Jimmy's kitty-brother. He couldn't be left out of the action!

Niece trying her new electric scooter with dad watching nearby. You can imagine the grin on that girl's face. She was so excited riding up and down the cul-de-sac.

I've been enjoying the misc. ornament photos on other people's blogs, esp. Raggeds. Since we didn't put up a tree of our own, I took this photo at the parentals.

Favorite Christmas moment: when above niece climbed on my lap and we looked through the family calendar together. Also, when we first saw them on Saturday, her dad was in front of her to give me a hug. She quickly cut him off and said "I get to be the first one to give Madeline a hug!".

Oooooh, a post-holiday trip to the hideaway with kitty in tow. Sounds wonderful!

I've been here once before and commented but it didn't take.

I just mentioned how your kitty's eyes looked like headlights, and how well she must be able to see at night.

Also, love your Christmas moment.

What a precious story about your niece wanting to be first to hug you, Mad. So you really DO know about how precious my g'son is! I love hearing how special your Christmas celebration was.
