Seattle Christmas Adventure: Christmas Day 2011

The magic of Christmas was felt in West Seattle last Sunday morning.

We had a very traditional morning....stockings and cards before we devoured the tree!

Everyone had a wonderful morning.....and we tried to drag out each gift as long as possible before the magic disappeared until next year.

Gifts from far away were opened first....homemade jam from Brian's niece and a beautiful picture (lighthouse) all the way from Brian's brother in Hawaii.

Champagne and quiet naps in the afternoon before the kitchen came alive with Beef Tenderloin, Roasted Shallot, Bacon and Port Gravy, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Italian Green Beans.

Blessings and gratitude overflowed.

Merry Christmas 2011!
