Traditional Christmas Day

Chip has to work on Christmas Day, so our family is celebrating Christmas tomorrow. Chip should get here around noon tomorrow. This is the first time that we've ever not celebrated on the Very Day - but it's really not so hard. Since Dylan is now such a grown-up, it didn't bother him either.

 Laurie made us a terrific turkey dinner, with such a beautiful table setting - I'm so sorry I didn't get a picture of it. The dinner was scrumptious, and we appreciated all of her hard work and hospitality!

 While the turkey was cooking, we took the opportunity to do some Christmas caching near her neighborhood. Laurie wanted to show us a tricky one, but Dick walked right to it - it was a kind with which we are very familiar. She took us to three all together - it was a beautiful day, lots of fun, and the turkey bird was roasting peacefully in the oven while we were gone.

After dinner and clean-up, Dylan, Tom and Jana tried their skill at Jenga - it's as much fun to watch as to play.
