Why a happy December 27th?  Why not...

Christmas was lovely.  I dont have any pictures uploaded yet(except one that P's aunt took of Maya), so I'll share that.  Her smile pretty much sums it up!

We had a lovely two day celebration.  Christmas Eve, we went to my in-laws for a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas Eve dinner, then we went to 7pm Mass, which was lovely.  Later on, my mother in law and I went to Midnight Mass at our local parish; again, lovely.  I cantored the 7:30am Mass on Christmas Day, where my in-laws and father joined me (the kids were asleep from a much later than usual night, so Peter stayed with them).  I prepared our annual brunch when I got home and we were surrounded by family for a nice meal.  Later, we went to Peter's aunt's home for dinner with family.  All in all, it was truly a wonderful time with family.

We dont do a huge amount of gift giving, but I was touched that Peter selected 2 dresses for me from Shabby Apple (and I'm sad I'm returning them because the arms just dont fit my broad shoulders well).  The thought that went into his selections really warmed me. :)  He's a sweetheart...

Yesterday, Peter had a 'daddy day'.  I met up with Sarah for a 4 mile run on some of the trails in the county, and then we had brunch.  I finished up the afternoon by catching a movie with Peter's aunt then came home and we had dinner together.  So, a nice Boxing Day too! :)

Well, kids are waking from naptime...
