Christmas in Jackson, Dec 24-25, 2009

The family converged on Jackson for Christmas - our family from Seattle, Silas from Italy, Kirsten from France, Bridget from London, Eric from up the hill, Sarah and Roger from down in the field. On Christmas Eve we went for a walk in the sunshine, decorated the tree, disposed of the frozen Halloween pumpkins in the brook, prepared for and hosted the Christmas Eve party and went to church for the Christmas Eve service. We gathered at Sarah and Roger's on Christmas morning for stockings and their traditional rice pudding breakfast then returned to the house to open the mountain of presents under the tree. Later we all joined Joe and Virginia for supper at their house but I was tired and didn't bring my camera.
