The table was set,
for the guests to arrive.
There was still work to be done in the kitchen,
but the work under the tree was well finished!
Before our meal (and before someone had visions of sugarplums dancing in her head), we had to celebrate a little lady's first Christmas.
The meal was delicious, the company was lovely, and we enjoyed the magic of the season with our baby girl for the first time.
Oh, and there may have been some last minute present wrapping, cookie eating and holiday special-watching as well... but that was all after everyone left.
We can't wait to see what Santa leaves under our tree this year!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
