Great Catch-Up : A Double Christmas

We had a long, wonderful Christmas extravaganza. We got out to DC a few days early and were able to visit with friends like Jess and Adam in Virginia Beach (see below) and Adam and Sarah in Baltimore.

Christmas Eve was celebrated at Aunt Renee's place with dear friends Barbara and Adrienne in attendance. There was a lot of wonderful food and Violet was a doll in her jingle bell collar.

Christmas Day was spent at Dad's place. He and Lynn made a wonderful breakfast and we had presents "round two," followed by a rousing game of Take Two (between Tiara, Dad, Heath and myself), while others worked on the traditional Christmas puzzle...

That night, we did what Pietrangelos do and went for Chinese food at House of Dynasty!

Then, we went over to Tiara's new place and kicked butt at Wii golf. Below, Heath and Bryan enjoying one another's company...

The next day, we all went and saw South Pacific at The Kennedy Center. While a little dated, it was a lovely show...

And now, for the Double Christmas! One of the treats of having the Carters in Chicago is that we were able to drive back from DC and start our Christmas celebration all over again with Jacque, Clyde and Mackensey. Not just wonderful gifts, but wonderful food!

Violet's favorite gift of the season? Her new Chiefs jersey!
