As I write this on Monday morning starting a slow day at the office, I can say that we all had a wonderful time last night. The cats were awesome and adorable with the kids.
Hal, Nicola, Connor, Edna and Brianna.
Brianna had a really good relationship with Spartacus, as the picture clearly shows. Stevie Nicks was too busy posing for everyone else to let me get a shot of her, but she charmed everyone all evening. Maxwell stayed aloof for most of the evening, but later he did sit next to Edna on the couch.
We will be seeing everyone on xmas later this week. Hal and I are looking forward to more time together with Nicola and the family.
