Not even a mouse…
Monday, December 24th, 2018

What a lovely day…

This year, the Devlin family decided to destress a bit. Christmas has always been: get up early with the kids, then rush to prep the Christmas meal. This year, my mom and my daughter decided that neither of them really wanted to cook. (Don’t look at me. I’m never in the equation when it comes to the big meals. I can manage a decent breakfast, but turkey or ham? All the fixin’s? Not in my wheelhouse, and not if you want to enjoy it. 🙂 )

So, we decided to go out, en masse, for a meal at a local restaurant on Christmas Eve. Afterward, we had the adults’ gift-giving (because Christmas morning is all about the kids), and then home for early bed. So, here I am at 8 PM, finally remembering to post. And it’s perfectly quiet. Peaceful. I think this became a new family tradition.

    We picked up a meal at a local restaurant instead of cooking this year. So much less stress. I think this is our new tradition. Merry Christmas!

    Great idea! I’m thinking next year we’ll have Cracker Barrel prepare the dinner…

    We had dinner at the clubhouse in our mobile home park; it was great!
