Me on Monday: Holiday Wrap-Up

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Before launching in to some year-end reflections and coming year intentions, I thought I'd wave hi on Monday with a quick holiday wrap-up.
What kindof holiday was it?
It was a traveling to southern California kind of holiday, where I organized Family Jeopardy for Paul's family (above). It was a great hit!
It was a tons of presents for the kids kind of holiday:
And a posing with the cousins for the traditional photograph on the stairway kind of holiday:
It was a seeing the movie Creed (and really enjoying it), eating tamales and ham and tri-tip kind of holiday;
It was also a really happy to have my son home from University (and enjoying playing this board game with him); binge watching Sherlock and Jessica Jones kind of holiday;
A champagne on New Year's Eve and
our traditional black-eyed peas and pork roast on New Year's Day kind of holiday.
And finally,
A grading exams with the kitten kind of holiday!
So relieved they're all done.
So, what kind of a holiday did you have?
(This wrap-up is done in the style of Sian's Me on Monday).

It sounds like an excellent sort of holiday! Lovely to see everyone looking relaxed and happy, with good food and gifts and company. Here's to 2016.

Sounds like the perfect holiday--with lots of family time. We had the same; Christmas Day here with Tracy's family. Matt, Betsy and the girls, and then a week with Sarah, Adam, and Caleb in Chicago.

Wow, sounds like it was a FUN and busy holiday season! We had a quiet, relaxing holiday this year as we snuck away to a cabin in the Smoky Mountains, just the two of us! :)

It looks like a wonderful holiday. We always get a cousins picture too whenever we are together, because the kids are always changing so much. Happy 2016 to you and yours.
