Christmas day followed a fairly standard schedule in our house, with some modifications because of the pandemic. The day started at 7:30 when Lucia and Rose woke up. We told the older kids they could sleep until 9 so when Lucia and Rose woke up we watch the newest version of the grinch until 9.
The weather was awesome this week, so Mary Connor found a lake house at Sun Valley Lake for Gary and Kathie to stay at for a couple of nights. Mary, us and the Reagens came out for a day to enjoy the warm weather.
For Thanksgiving this year we headed south to the Connors’. The weather was awesome and they had a beautiful setup in their driveway.
We had a great Christmas day today. The morning was spent opening presents and eating our traditional Christmas breakfast – chocolate chip pancakes. This afternoon we had the chance to spend some time relaxing before heading to Mimi and Papa’s for Christmas dinner with the Liesses, the Connors, and the Reagens.
