Christmas actually wasn’t too germy. The sickness hit the day after. And prevailed by Sunday. Monday was miserable. But now that it’s Tuesday we are finally on the mend, and I can see that eventually we will be healthy again.
There is nothing as pitiful as a 2-month-old with a cold.
Fiona’s first Christmas was very nice, the aforementioned cold notwithstanding. We started our Christmas vacation on Saturday the 20th, with a drive up to Pennsylvania to see some family- Fiona met her great-grandparents, along with some great-aunts and great-uncles, and whatever you call your parents’ cousins…second cousins I guess? We stayed with them for a few days, and everyone was so excited to have a baby in the house that I pretty much only saw her when she needed to be fed. It was a very good visit and we look forward to visiting them again.

The day before Christmas Eve we continued our vacation with a drive further north, all the way to Massachusetts. We’ve had quite the busy week. Activities included-
– decorating the Christmas tree
– attending Midnight Mass
– opening presents on Christmas morning
– going ice skating
– having our 19th annual Christmas caroling party
– playing many board games
It’s been a full, fun week. Despite the miserable cold.
Pictures to follow.
