For the past 2 weeks, some, often many, if not all, of my kids were home for Christmas and the new year. It's been a blast. It's late for celebration, but here's a fast recap:
The Christmas tree:
A closeup of my grandmother's icicles. They were stunning. I used only silver bells for ornaments, and everyone thought this was the best "adult" tree ever (as opposed to 7, 8 or 9 kids glomming ornaments on practically every needle):
Christmas breakfast, in which Dan and Jeff cooked 42 scrambled eggs with cheese. Well, I guess that all of us were really hungry. I presided over the punch, of course.
Well, that's all of it. Now, off to start dinner, so the remaining hungry hordes can eat when the football game is over!
