I have a few minutes this Christmas evening and thought I'd blog about the first two parts of our Christmas celebration. Yes, Christmas has only begun at our house. We've had two celebrations and we have two more. My two brothers will arrive this weekend and then we will not have Christmas with our children until next Tuesday night. It is going to be a very long Christmas celebration for sure! So to avoid a lengthy recap I thought I'd share our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day events today. Note: this is my 700th post! That's a whole lot of writing folks and I can honestly say I've enjoyed every minute of it!
On Christmas Eve our son, DIL and the Princess joined us in having Christmas with my Dad.
Yesterday we joined some dear friends for a mid-afternoon meal as we both were going to be by ourselves for the day. You must know that this gal is extraordinaire in everything she does. Below is a picture of the dining table that we were privileged to sit down and eat at. I felt very queenly for sure!

|The buffet was elegant with the three wise men and greenery.|
|A beautiful nativity on the foyer table.|
|And, another miniature nativity.|
And, changing gears just a tad for a quick house update....
Things are moving right along once again. They started the trim work this week and a couple of the guys even worked a part of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The cabinets will start going in on Monday. It's coming together and looking so good. We've still got a long way to go, but we're definitely getting there.
I'll be back to share the rest of our Christmas sometime next week. ~I know you can hardly wait~
