Family Fun Weekending.

The last weekend of 2018 was full of family fun. We celebrated the end of Sara’s work week (aka “Friday night”) with a puzzle, holiday mules and mussels for dinner. I was up early Saturday morning and enjoyed the most recent Christmas episode of Call the Midwife along with a little ADVENTurer knitting.We had the puzzle about 80% finished by the time we left for Steve & Lydia’s – this year’s hosts for the annual family holiday party. It was great fun having the whole family together (for the first time since my dad’s memorial service back in April, 2016).

Sam kind of stole the whole show 🙂

but Charlie gave a good performance, too!

Here’s my mom with her grandkids – Sara, Katie, Paula, Jill and Andrew.

And the whole family! (Jillian’s boyfriend John took the photo – I’m not sure we could’ve managed this one with a self-timer!)

The rest of our weekend was quiet. We finished that puzzle,ate sandwiches and watched a few episodes of TGBBS (the latest season … the one I didn’t enjoy so much, but with Sara, it seemed much better).

I drove Sara to the airport yesterday afternoon. Now the house is really quiet.

Marc’s playing golf today while I’m catching up on laundry … and thinking about a nap. I stayed up much later than usual while Sara was here, but I still never saw midnight!

Wishing y’all a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!
