A Merry Little Christmas (Part Two)

Christmas morning we woke up to this outside...

(Beautiful but chilly hardwood floors + winter = a newfound adoration of wool socks!)

...so we feasted instead!  I chose bread and cheese goodies, while Sweet Husband had ribs.  Then we had a movie marathon and knitting session, punctuated by phone calls from family near and far.

It was a very nice little Christmas indeed!
