MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! It was a chilly Christmas in Cincinnati…

And we woke up to a white Christmas…

We got the dogs a bunch of new dog toys and blankets for Christmas…

I took a little video of the dogs coming in from outside to discover all their new toys…

And now the dogs have a very full box of toys…

After the dogs got to play with their toys for a bit, we took them out on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made Magic Middles for breakfast this morning…

Magic Middles are delicious…

After breakfast, we opened our presents and exchanged our gifts. My parents sent us this hilarious 2020 ornament…

A huge thank you so much to my mom & dad for all our wonderful Christmas gifts…

There was a bit of debate over this advent calendar…

I thought we should start at one, count along with the days and end on twenty-five. Genifer thought we should start on twenty-five and countdown to one and end on the star. And you can see who won that debate…

This afternoon we headed up to West Chester to celebrate Christmas with Geri. We took some shrimps, a meat & cheese tray, a whole bunch of dippers and that was our Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful time spending the afternoon with her.

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After the dog’s were done with the freezing cold walk, we watched a bunch of basketball and called it a day. We had a really wonderful Christmas day. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Hello Christmas tree.

Happy Friday after Thanksgiving! And good morning from Northside…

We put up our Christmas tree out this morning…

We started to add lights but two sets were burned out leaving us with a Christmas tree that was only half-lit …

Unfortunately for Oscar, Genifer found his reindeer antlers…

We ran over to the post office…

We sent a package out that we probably should have mailed last week but I completely forgot about it. We’ll see if it still arrives in time. I hope so.

After we mailed our package, it was Skyline time!

Genifer had a deluxe burrito. And I had a 5-way…

Skyline is so good. I saved my cheese coneys for later. After lunch, Genifer kept working on bringing out the Christmas decorations and I went out to work on the front yard a bit…

We could see our T+G again…

We took the dogs on their evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll work on some Christmas lights…

We had Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner…

Later, we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Minion Holiday Special and then we watched 47 Hours to Live on Netflix. The Christmas specials were terrific. The movie was not so great.

But today was fantastic. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽ„πŸ β€οΈ

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

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…
