Merry Christmas 2015!

Jeff and I stayed home for Christmas this year due to lack of time off and to avoid holiday travel stress.  This was the first time in I don't know how many years that I put up my little Illini Christmas tree (without lights because those were lost until about two days ago).  I also received the ceramic Christmas tree that my Mom made in the early 80s for Grandma I that I inherited.  I love it, but couldn't find any cat-free space to put it and there's no way I would risk it breaking due to their curiosity.

We spent the day playing board games, doing a puzzle, and watching movies.  It was splendid.  For dinner, Jeff cooked a ginormous steak in addition to corn and sweet potatoes.  Everything was delicious as always.  We finished off the evening by watching the Doctor Who Christmas special... and it truly was special (love, love, love River Song!).  Hoping you and yours had an equally lovely holiday!
