It’s Christmas Eve – 10:55 pm. I’ve scheduled this post to go out at exactly 7:00 am, which is when we told Emily and Elena they could start opening their presents. So, hopefully, all will go according to plan and at 7:00 am I will have a hot cup of coffee (or a mimosa) in my hands as I watch two of my favorite nieces start to open their presents.
We’re at my parents’ house in the Methow Valley, where a foot of new snow has fallen in the last few days. It’s truly a winter wonderland and I feel so blessed to have this chance to spend time with my parents, and my sister and her kids, who have traveled all the way from Japan to spend Christmas with us this year.
I don’t have a recipe to share with you today, but in case you are curious, we’ll be eating homemade waffles for breakfast and ham and scalloped potatoes for dinner. My mom is cooking, so I know it is going to be good. Hopefully we’ll have time to squeeze in another ski between meals.
Wherever you are today, and however you are celebrating, Joy and I both want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.
Talk to you soon!
