We had a house full of merriment until midnight last night. Every year I question if we'd rather just have a quiet Christmas and not deal with the fuss of the food and cleaning and one more Christmas thing. But then we end up inviting our friends, and it turns out to be so delightful and fun and happy that it makes my heart smile.
And now, we get ready for the final Christmas celebration of the year followed by skiing in Michigan's upper peninsula. If I don't come back with a Yooper accent, I haven't done my job, hey.
