A little Christmas Catch-up

I’m so slow catching up!  Christmas morning started with an 8 am exchanging of gifts with the MacKenzie’s.  Dan’s dad made us scrambled eggs, bacon and toast.  Breakfast of champions!

Right after breakfast we got on the road to Pittsburgh.  We arrived in time for a quick lunch.  Mom made us some black bean soup

 

and cheese and crackers.

 

Then we got started on dinner.

We opened gifts with some champagne and a lot of laughter.
