While we were preparing Christmas brunch ahead of time, my niece and nephew finally got a Santa photo done at Bass Pro Shops. The third time was the charm for that! (After my previous update, they had gone to see Santa at Southwest Plaza and waited an hour only to learn that the photo printer was not working so they were not offering photos at all.)
We had a lovely Christmas morning with the family, then took Laurel down the hill after lunch to spend the night with her paternal family. She had a great time catching up with them and came home with a new card game to play, Guillotine.
Hung out with the family all day Friday and early Saturday, then saw Amy, Sarah, and the kids off on a road trip to Craig to visit a friend after scrubbing the same trip at Thanksgiving due to weather. After playing text tag on Sunday, I caught up with karaksindru; we hung out for awhile and had dinner at Beau Jo's.
Now Amy, et al are due home this evening, I'm about to head out to the library with Laurel for her to find some sources for a school project on pandas, and we leave Denver early Wednesday morning.
