Scenes from Christmas eve -- reading the classics with Auntie Emily, and Fratello jumping into Santa's sack!

Christmas was perfect, for the kids. I got Anthony's stomach bug, and sat on the couch wishing I could just enjoy the reaction to Santa's gifts and not feel nauseated and achey. After the gift frenzy, Emily and Anthony allowed me to take a 3-hour nap, which helped a lot. I was able to cook the Christmas dinner I'd been looking forward to making for weeks, and even ate some of it. Unfortunately, I didn't get to drink nearly as much wine as I wanted. Anthony was very enthusiastic and complimentary about the meal, saying it was better than any restaurant. I think he just really likes tenderloin with wild rice.

More on the beef here.

Sorry, you weren't feeling good. I'm glad the kids had a good Christmas.

I sure hope you feel all better now. It truly sucks to be so sick for a big holiday.
