A lovely Friday evening spent decorating the Christmas trees for this year to the tune of carols and jazz renditions of popular seasonal songs. The Young Master even put down Flight Simulator long enough to join his mother to help finish the family tree in the library before bedtime.
As promised, the Grand Duchess and I opened and enjoyed a new bottle of very smooth and mellow French red wine. . . followed by cups of Bailey's Irish Cream by the fireside -- We are such lushes. -- before turning in very late. We even had about two inches of fresh snow falling slowly outside, so a very pleasant time all the way around.
