What we learned this past week: one could easily make a hobby of staying in bed till 11am, while watching The Getaway and/or Income Property and eating Christmas cookies for breakfast.
Since I'm sure our holiday was no different from yours- lots of driving and family visits and drinking alcohol in the closet- I'll save you the stories.
Here are some photo highlights from our Christmas 2013.
The Cherry Jewel Cookies (I think this may be their last year...)

My sister found out that one of the local high schools was offering a fundraiser for the school band: private holiday performances IN YOUR OWN HOME. These guys were polite and friendly and really did a great job. Needless to say, my teenage niece was foaming at the mouth as soon as they arrived. Needless to say, so was I. (For HER, obviously.)
A REAL LIFE nativity scene (these kids and goats are hard core)
Happy Holidays from everyone at the TILTE house!
