We've been Merry Christmasing around our house so much, I wasn't able to post last week. But from here on out, it's Monday through Friday on my blog, as usual.

I'd hoped to at least post a Merry Christmas during Christmas week, but it never happened. Our family was together for nearly 10 days, and then we traveled for a few days to see several sets of extended family since our youngest daughter Jennifer and her family were here from San Juan.

We did lots of kids' activities...

With seven-year-old Alexander, four-year-old Nicholas, almost-three-year-old Claudia, and 13-month-old baby Lorenzo.

Light seeing here and yon.

Outdoor ice skating. In Florida. Milton called it a slush pond, but boy, could our kiddies skate.

Visits to the hands-on children's museum.

Monkey-viewing at the zoo.

Seeing the live outdoor nativity.

Caroling as we rode the Holly Jolly Train (tram) in St. Augustine during Nights of Lights.

Looking at the gingerbread house display at the mall.

The kiddies making their own gingerbread houses at home…

…dressed in their Emeril (TV chef) aprons and chefs' hats…

…adorable, even if they are mine.

BAM! (An Emeril saying.)

Oh, Kristy! What a blessed Christmas you had! These beautiful little ones is what our holiday memories are all about, aren't they? How precious yours are! Isn't grandparenting the greatest thing in the world?

Yes, it is, Ane. We had a grand time, a blessed time, as you said.
