Christmas 2011

May 6, 2012

Time to play catch-up! I still haven’t done a trip report for our October vacation, but that will have to wait. Before I post my most recent trip report, it’s Christmas time.

I got the idea in my head of having the family come to Richmond for Christmas last year. So that’s how it came to be that some of us celebrated Christmas together: Randy and Shanlii came from New Mexico, and Neicie, David and Sarah from Florida (with their little dog Daisy). I flew to Syracuse to bring Mom down, and afterwards, drove her home.

It was a really nice holiday, and Mom especially enjoyed it. I played hostess-with-the-mostess, and managed to everyone fed and comfortable. We did a little bit of shopping, including a family Costco field trip. Everyone showed up at midnight mass – and the church roof didn’t cave in! Charlie took everyone (sans me) to the Museum of Fine Arts on Christmas day. Many fart jokes were made, and Shanlii survived meeting Randy’s sisters. And we all went to the GardenFest of Lights at Lewis Ginter, took turns pushing Mom around, and froze our tushies off. All in all, a wonderful Christmas.
