Christmas 2007

Yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and Christmas dinner at Deb's house. Deb's house was all decked out, the table was beautiful, the food delicious and the company was lots of fun. Both children and adults had a wonderful time. Thanks L family for including us in the celebration and for the piccies.

A couple of differences and similarities from last Christmas: Last year we had 36 hours of Christmas, 27 hours of which was spent traveling home from China. This year Christmas lasted only 24 hours and we had only about 27 minutes of travel time round trip to Deb's house. Last year I returned home from China with full blown pneumonia and Maisie had ear infections and a cold, this year once again I have pneumonia but I'm already on the mend and Maisie has a cold but she too is already feeling better. ('ve had lots of pressure to get the pneumonia shot this year so not to make next year a repeat of these past two, think this is something that I'll have to arrange a.s.a.p.)  Both this year and last were wonderful as we got to be together as a family with Maisie and for us, we couldn't ask for anything better!

Hope that everyone had a wonderful day.

  2. Darling pictures! She is so cute. I love the one of you two kissing! I hope you get feeling better! The shot is a good idea. My hubby would get pneumonia every year. He had the shot 4 years ago and has been perfect since. Glad you had a great Christmas.
