Still Celebrating Christmas

We are still celebrating at our house.  Are you?   Christmas was wonderful.  
After attending early mass, we made our annual Christmas eve trip to the movies.
 followed by a visit to Waffle House.  

On Christmas day there were fun gifts,

Christmas jazz courtesy of KMHD 89.1 Jazz Radio Portland, and the sounds of Fruition String Band.
Later in the evening good friends stopped in 
to enjoy a visit and incredible performances by Parker Smith

and our very own Mimi.

Then it started to snow.
 On Sunday we joined friends for dinner

Before going to the Atlanta Thrashers game.

Tonight we're watching the Falcons (RISE UP!) and visiting with friends.  There are lots more Christmas carols to be sung and memories to be made.  
I'm so happy to keep my Christmas tree up until after the Epiphany.
At our house, we're going to keep celebrating the season.  Season's greetings.


  1. Looks like so much fun! I'm still celebrating also. I will have a dinner tomorrow night for my daughter and SIL. Decorations will be up until New Years day.

  2. JoJo, looks like you and the family are enjoying the holidays with lots of fun activities. Have a great week!

  3. Absolutely I'm still celebrating!!! We haven't had my birthday yet. We haven't had New Year's Eve or Day yet. The BOWL games are still goin' on!!!! The 12th Day of Christmas isn't here yet!!!

    Man - - - after all the work of decorating and getting ready, ONE PUNY LITTLE DAY is NOT enough!


  4. Looks like you had some good memories being built there to add to your traditions!


  5. Fun times chez Jojo! It's so interesting to read about the traditions of other families. I especially love the idea of a house concert.
    Our tree will stay up through Epiphany too - we celebrate the 12 days and I often then we have the best of the season!

  6. Looks like the perfect holiday! Enjoy every moment.
