Christmas 2016 and the Days to Come

It's Christmas Eve and we're all ready for the big day tomorrow. Tonight, we plan to chill out with Lin and friends and then attend a Christmas Eve candlelight service at the First Parish Church in Milton, Massachusetts. Tomorrow, Lin's son, Nick, and his partner, Val, and daughter, Daphne, will join us along with long-time family friends, Steve, Prentiss and Damon. Nine around the dining table will be cozy and fun. The 21 pound turkey with all the fixin's should be just about right!

We remember Christmases past when we were away from family or sometimes away from each other. This year we're together with family and even Cups is back home in the USA.

We plan to leave Boston mid-week and head back to Nine of Cups patiently awaiting our return in Chesapeake, Virginia. No blog posting for the next week to give us a chance to celebrate, pack and make the drive south … plus we'll give Gentry, the blog mistress, a well-deserved break, too.

Have a wonderful holiday season and join us again aboard Nine of Cups at the New Year.
