Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas in Salisbury and then hosted our 2nd annual Start the New Year Off Wright open house in Nashville. We spent Christmas Eve with the Wrights - always a a good time. Although Cheryl, Ken, and Elias couldn't be there in person, we all got to wish them good tidings via webcam. Clearly Weston had a good time and we were grateful that Granddaddy Carl Wright was able to get in on the fun.

Following dinner, some caroling and a board game, we left the Wrights and went to midnight mass with my mom and dad in Salisbury's brand new Catholic church. We got there very early as this was the first Christmas mass since the church was dedicated earlier in December. It was pretty warm in the chapel and the altar boys were extra generous with the incense, which all must have contributed to Mom's "not feeling so well." She "done fell out" in the middle of communion! Thankfully Dr. Dave and several EMTs and nurses in the congregation came to her aid as she was laid down on the beautiful new wooden pew with her feet up. When she regained consciousness, I felt much better and fortunately she was able to walk down the aisle (in front of the packed house of about 800 people) into the vestibule on her own two feet. The priest wasn't phased...
Brookie and Jeff arrived in Salisbury on Christmas morning and surprised us all with Jack's new t-shirt. Our baby will have another cousin on Sept. 1st - just two days before Jack's birthday! The Skowroneks had a wonderful day - opening presents and watching Jack sweep and mop everything in sight. Jonathan and I left in the early evening to join the annual Butts family Christmas at his Aunt Karolyn and Uncle Gary's home in Winston. Another wonderful holiday - full of good times with family and amazingly relaxing.
