Lovely Christmas eve with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and our mutual family in quaint rural Oakwood, Illinois. Enjoyed their gorgeous home, with plenty of great vittles, including my favorite comfort food, macs and cheese. Everyone there--and there must have been 20 or so--seemed to really relax and enjoy themselves. That's what Xmas is all about. Spending plenty of time in the next couple weeks in central Illinnois and Chicagoland.
