Christmas is over, the family is gone and Chris is back to work, so it seems the holidays have ended early this year. I’ve spent two days cleaning up the aftermath and I still have more to do, but by this time tomorrow all should be back to normal.
There were lots of comments from the group about how much better this Christmas was than last year, but that wasn’t hard: last year almost everyone came down with stomach flu. Even newly-pregnant Janette stayed healthy this time around (although she did need a steady supply of pickles). Justin warmed up to the company very quickly and was actually pretty good about dividing his attention amongst the crowd, and Brayden was happy with anybody. Brayden started crawling just before Christmas, so he had to be watched every second (no wonder no one had time to take many pictures!) Overall, a good time was had by all.
