We exchanged our Christmas presents this morning…

Santa was very good to us. We went over to Genifer’s brother’s house for a little bit before heading out to her mom’s in the afternoon for Christmas dinner and more gifts…

When we got home, we set everything on our dining room table so the dogs wouldn’t get into things they shouldn’t be getting into and it looked like Christmas exploded all over our dining room. What a terrific holiday mess…

We had a really wonderful Christmas in Cincinnati. And we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽβ€οΈ

Merry Christmas Eve.

Christmas in Pleasant Ridge.

This afternoon we drove over to Pleasant Ridge to go to Overlook Lodge and check out their annual Christmas extravaganza called Miracle at the Overlook Lodge

We’ve heard that Overlook goes a bit overboard with their holiday decorations…

The drinks on their seasonal menu sounded fantastic…

I started with their Christmas Carol Barrel and Genifer their Snowball Old-Fashioned…

Cleve and Alyssa joined us for a drink. For our second beverage, Genifer had their Jingle Balls Nog and I tried the Yippie Ki Yay Mister Falcon…

All the drinks we were really tasty. Genifer loved their nog, and my favorite was the barrel. After finishing our drinks, we walked down the street to Revolution Rotisserie to grab a bite to eat…

I had their chicken pot pie special and Genifer had boneless wings…

Delicious stuff all around. It was another really fun evening over in Pleasant Ridge.

Northside Christmas lights.

After I got off the bus, I paused to grab a photo of the houses with Christmas lights on my walk from the bus stop down Pullan Avenue to home…

Christmas lights sure are pretty. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β€οΈ

We have Christmas spirit.

Our living room is looking festive with holiday decorations…

And yes, we know Believe is spelled wrong. It’s funnier that way. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

O Christmas tree.

Our Christmas tree has a little bit of a lean to it this year. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β€οΈ

It looks a lot like Christmas.

When I got to work this morning, the lobby of 302 West Third was beautifully decorated for the holidays…

Later, I ran out to get something for lunch and stopped to admire the tree in the atrium at the Westin Hotel across from Fountain Square…

And the tree in Carew Tower…

I was walking in what was left of downtown Cincinnati’s Skywalk and noticed that the escalators in Carew Tower that were always broken had been replaced with stairs…

And the Hyatt Regency had a pretty tree too…

On my way to the bus after work, I stopped to admire the holiday window display at Bromwell’s on Fourth Street…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

When we were out walking the dogs today, we noticed this lone Christmas ornament hanging on a shrub by the Montessori school on the hill at the end of our street…



I think my sister sent us a special delivery by mistake…

JJVE your adorable Christmas ornament is back on its way to you. πŸ˜€β›„οΈβ€οΈ

Seen and noted.

We’ve seen quite a few reindeer cars. But this is the first Christmas tree car…

Some people justΒ really love Christmas. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ
