Holiday Season part 3

We got back to the Greene house Christmas Eve’s eve and helped with some last minute Christmas present planning.

On Christmas Eve we had a family dinner with all of Luke’s family and some family friends. We then took naps or watched movies for the rest of the afternoon so we could go to midnight mass. We went to midnight mass as a family and John (Luke’s father) played guitar for carols before and during the mass.

We came back, had eggnog, and helped to fill stockings then went to bed.

Early the next morning in our PJ’s everyone opened stockings, then John put on the santa hat and started handing out presents. Luke even took over for a short time so John could have a break and open his own presents.

Later in the day the whole family was able to get play time with the niece and nephew and their Christmas gifts.

We loved spending time with our family.

We left the next day back to New York. Then we had a quiet New Years’ Eve just the two of us. As our joint Christmas present we bought a fondue set. We decided to continue our tradition of cheese and chocolate fondue at home. We used chardonnay with blue cheese, swiss, and goat cheese. Then we did merlot with white and dark chocolate for dessert.

It was a relaxing evening. The next day we play some games and enjoyed a nice steak dinner.

That was the end of our holiday season.
