Christmas this year was a quiet affair. Just us and my mother-in-law. We talked several times with my brother who is in long term care here in Tulsa. (We are all excited, he has recovered enough to where he will be going to an assisted living facility sometime early next month.)
We grilled steaks for dinner along with mashed potatoes, green beans, asparagus, and crusty bread.
Here’s son working away at his video games. That is what he does.
I hate photos of myself. The force was not with me photography wise. I couldn’t get the white balance or anything else right. That is what makes me a picture taker and not a photographer.
This was desert. There is a bunch less of these now than there was 24 hours ago.
Lizzie and LJ looked on with detachment. They got toys though which they promptly push underneath furniture. The dogs didn’t get new toys. They only like them a little bit and then ignore so we brought out last year’s toys and that made them happy.
At this age our gift giving is kind of simple. We buy whatever Logan wants which really isn’t too much. A few days Heather and I went to Best Buy and got an Apple Watch for her and this fancy Garmin sports watch for me. Both watches have pulse oximeters so they tell us what our blood oxygen levels are. It’s got a bunch of other gizmos on it.
So after a bit, we took my mother-in-law home and we sat down and watched Christmas Story. Logan’s favorite movie on this day.
So we were blessed. We have our health, my brother is getting better, we enjoyed each others company.
If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great Christmas as well.
