Boxing Day

Actually, it isn't boxing day around here because we haven't opened Christmas presents yet.  They are all still waiting under the tree.  The stockings are still hung by the chimney with care.  We decided to wait until we could all be together.  

Adam arrives on Tuesday afternoon.
We'll have a special "eve" dinner.
Then we'll open presents, saving the stockings for Wednesday morning's treat.

Did I mention that Oliver helped immensely by picking up our tree?

I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas surrounded by those you love!!


  1. I think waiting is a wonderful idea! You get to celebrate Christmas twice!

  2. That is wonderful! I hope you all have a terrific time together!!!!
    Holiday Hugs,

  3. i will not show this post to my dogs, next thing they will be wanting to drive

  4. Excellent idea to "hold" Christmas until you're all together. All that extra anticipation will only make the actual celebration more special. Have a good one!

  5. I love that you have delayed the festivities and hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  6. I'm glad you will have a fun celebration all together. And now that Christmas is over, you still have yours to look forward to! Gosh, I don't remember the Oliver story, I can't imagine what he did, am I having a senior moment? I've not been feeling well, so will us that as an excuse!! Now I really want to know about the tree and Oliver!

  7. So you are stretching out the fun --sounds good to me! It doesn't matter when...having family there is the key, if possible! Enjoy!

  8. Ginny: Just commenting on the card that looks like Oliver is bringing a tree home on top of a Volkswagen. You are not losing it!!

  9. I had a wonderful quiet Christmas. Be sure to let us know how yours went, I'm sure it was festive!

    xo, Bonnie

  10. I don't think even I could wait that long!
    Enjoy your family!Have fun.


  11. Nothing like extending Christmas. I say we make it last till February.

    Hope all is good and everyone arrives safe and sound.

    Love that card!

  12. Have a wonderful Christmas. I like the idea of celebrating when everyone is there. The kids arrive this weekend so I think my daughter would expext the traditional Eve dinner of cheese fondue:D

  13. LOL! I'm lovin' the Oliver driving the VW with the tree card!! Too cute! I knew he was a really good helper! ;)

    It is not the date, but the family that makes Christmas special; I know you all will enjoy it to the fullest today!!

    My Little Men are going to be trying to pack up all their loot and begin the trip home today... I'll be a little blue. So, I'll be thinking on how fun your day will be. blessings ~ tanna

  14. We waited until Monday to finish up our celebration for that very same reason. I hope you have a wonderful time together Patty

  15. Oh, Bonnie, how fun that your family gets to extend the magic and beauty of Christmas a few more days. I think waiting until mid-week, when everyone is together, is the perfect thing to do.



  16. I love the fact that you are having an extended Christmas celebration. Enjoy your family this week!

  17. have i told you how much I love the name oliver? Its a favorite of mine! Sounds like a great idea to wait til you can all be together. Makes christmas even longer- and that is always a good thing!

  18. Hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright. It should have been a white one! Happy New Year too!
