After Christmas

Dan went back to work this morning, and I'll go in to the office in a few hours. Yesterday was Boxing Day, one of my favorite days of the year. I straightened up the house, made a pot of pea soup with the ham bone from Christmas dinner, worked on some insurance stuff, and took time in between to work on a jigsaw puzzle. I also did some laundry, which resulted in a backed up sewer drain in the basement. So, Dan is meeting the plumber here this afternoon.

Emily and Marcus and the babies came over for soup and sandwiches for supper. (Brooklynn loved the pea soup) and I got to enjoy playing with B on the floor. I was so busy on Christmas Day that I hardly spent time with  him, or Brooklynn.

Here he is giving my dad a 'high five.'

It was a big day for him, being his First Christmas and all.

We'll have our tree up until the end of the week, at least. I may put away some of the other decorations, but I always have a hard time letting go of the Christmas tree.  The best place for reading a new book is in the glow of the lights.

Gotta love the glow of a Christmas tree.

The glow of the Christmas lights is one of the things I miss most when we take the Christmas stuff down.
