I could describe today in two words.
Thankful and Recovery.
We always feel very lucky but never more than at Christmas.
There was, of course, so much generosity.
What I am thankful for more than anything though is the time spent with family and friends.
I know, it's cliché but nothing makes me happier than having 14 people share a dinner at our house.
I love setting the table.
I love the meal planning.
This year was a little tricky since Jeff was it out of commission.
He was sicker than a dog and in bed for the better part of the day.
He's usually the turkey/gravy guy but I managed to flub my way through.
Thank goodness for parents to help with the cooking and carving.
The meal turned out great and the company was unbeatable.
Now for the recovery.
Jeff slept for about 14 hours and is feeling much better.
I've been cleaning and organizing but the house is still not fully recovered.
Christmas passes too quick so anything to hang on for a bit right?
The kids are having a blast with their loot and are doing a little recovering of their own.
