|Kind of a "Stranger Things" vibe, no?|
|Enjoying the morning quiet is always a little better|
by the Christmas tree.
|Christmas cards were received and sent.|
|#yarnwishes were made and granted.|
|Gifts were purchased or made.|
|MUCH cooking happened in the Instant Pot.|
|Christmas Eve festivities with the Higueras|
were just as much fun as usual.
|No "present face" here; that excitement is real!|
|I wasn't allowed to take pictures Christmas morning, but|
(almost) all our traditions were in effect.
YES, there were waffles, LOL.
"Hernandez Christmas" on the 28th was a great time of relaxing an hanging out. I think Grandma Ruthie or Grandpa Gil might have taken a few pictures, but I was off my game and didn't that night, either.
|New Year's Eve at the Higueras' was the usual|
delicious crab feast.
|Knowing that Miss Honey doesn't do well for long|
periods of time in the crate, and not
knowing how she would do with 12:00
fireworks, etc., we came home early
and were well ensconced in bed
by the time the new year hit.
So, here's to a terrific new year in 2017. May yours be full of friends, family, fun, and bits of wackiness like the new flamingoes that now brighten the corner of my back yard.
