For anyone who is happy today and wants to share:

We had Xmas eve dinner with one son and family at our house and now Xmas day brunch at theirs. Snap Chatting with the other son and family.

Has been a very involved year but it is all good now and Christmas prayers from last year have been answered

Merry Christmas! Getting ready to drive down to Boston to relatives. The only one who is ready to go is the DOG. Weather is gorgeous. I burned the cookies. But all will be well!

Merry Christmas to all CDers! DH and I and the dogs are having a quiet day to ourselves. Right now I'm looking out at a snow covered landscape with nary a track in sight that isn't from a deer, turkey, fox, rabbit or bird. And there's a porterhouse steak and some nice baby bella mushrooms and toffee cheesecake in the fridge for supper.

2016 was one of the most difficult years ever. I'm hoping 2017 will be better--and I'm wishing the same for all of you, that no matter how great or less than great 2016 was, 2017 will be a wonderful year!

Merry Christmas. All gifts have been opened, everyone is happy, my cherry cake was not burned. Getting ready to cook my usual 9- course meal.

Merry Christmas! Did turkey and latkes last night and then realized there was not a single morsel of Christmas treats in the house. Not even fruitcake. Not a cookie. Not even a single piece of fudge.

Will be hitting the store tomorrow morning for the leftovers!!!

Waiting for family to arrive from Toronto; a couple more hours should do it.

Wishing everyone a better year next year than this past one.

Merry Merry Christmas to all ! Getting ready to drive to daughter and son in law's house, downtown Phoenix where she is cooking prime rib ! HA ! This should be good. Will have fun with my two dogs, her three dogs and one cat. Going to ask if they could drive me to Arkansas when I move. LOL

Spent Christmas Eve Day wandering through the Dresden Striezelmarkt, Germany's oldest Christmas Market, before having a wonderful, semi-formal, pre fixe four-course dinner in a fantastic restaurant in old town.

Dresden Striezelmarkt

Christmas morning we had brunch in our hotel before heading to the train station and boarding a train to Prague. Upon our arrival, we headed out for an early and very informal Christmas dinner at a very traditional Czech pub/restaurant, Hostinec U Kalicha. After dinner we then headed over to a beautiful old church, for a classical concert and recital. (We had purchased our tickets online in advance, which was fortunate, as the place was SRO.) Finally, we wrapped up Christmas evening with a leisurely stroll back to our hotel, but making a little detour through another Christmas Market and to see the 600-year-old Astronomical Clock on the old town square.

It truly has been a wonderful Christmas.
