Stockings were finally hung, although the hand-knitted stockings that I made for the boys are in a box somewhere, so some tights had to do instead. The following morning the family room looked like this:
Our first meal in the new kitchen was Christmas dinner - and I'm pleased to report that it worked well.
I had ordered a meal from WholeFoods which was good as I discovered that I had only 2 pans, none of our Christmas china, and no serving dishes available. Still - it tasted just as good served from my pyrex baking ware.
I hope your Christmas was as happy and comfortable as ours.
