You shoulda seen the purple and magenta sunrise, because my camera sure didn't do justice to it! So dawned Christmas morning.
We unstuffed the stockings first, then had a hot breakfast of eggs, potatoes, and chicken-and-apple sausage. As you can see, Number One Son got coal in his stocking, but it's the peppermint and chocolate kind from Trader Joe's.
The tree was all a-glow, with presents underneath.
Even the kitties got some new toys, which Belle promptly drooled all over.
After breakfast, we unwrapped the gifts, which was mostly "just what I wanted!" thanks to Amazon's handy wishlist feature.
My "just what I wanted" gift came in a box ready to assemble:
And quickly assembled into a cute little Schacht Cricket Loom! Hoorah! Tomorrow I will warp it and set forth to learning how to weave.
I also got a stack of books, and behind them, a Jeeves clock, a.k.a. a Good Morning Madam Talking Alarm Clock that wakes one gently with slightly apologetic phrases voiced by Stephen Fry.
Next, it's off to Christmas dinner at my mother's house.
