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

Dixie Terminal.

After I posted photos of various Christmas trees around downtown someone told me that Dixie Terminal had a Christmas tree as well. So I stopped to check it out this evening on my way to catch the bus…

And there it is. It’s a pretty one too…

Dixie Terminal is one of the true gems of downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸ¬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

Getting in some Christmas shopping.

We both had the day off work today. Genifer doesn’t usually work on Tuesdays and I’ve been trying to use up my vacation days before the end of the year. So this morning, we went and got coffee from Biggby and then went to the mall. The last time I went to the mall was over two years ago…

Do you think this is the last Sbarro on Earth? They used to be everywhere…

It was kinda fun to wander around the mall. We got a few things not a whole bunch. I definitely still have a bunch of Christmas shopping left to do. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ€οΈ

O Christmas tree.

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

A little bit earlier every year.

Just like the ridiculous ice skating rink on Fountain Square, that holiday tree seems to arrive a little bit earlier every year…

It makes me a little ill that they cut down a big beautiful tree every year. I really wish they would find a more sustainable alternative to cutting down a tree. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜•πŸŽ„β€οΈ

We need to do better.

Next year, we really need to do a better job with our Halloween decorations. People in our neighborhood decorate their porches with Halloween lights…

And people on our street hang scary ghost skeletons along with their lights…

We really need to step up our Halloween game next year. πŸ˜€πŸŽƒβ€οΈ
