10 Questions About…


Christmas in Minnesota by Ann Treacy

Christmas seemed even more hectic than usual in many ways. The storm of the century was predicted days before Christmas, which actually closed a number of places and caused the Chicago to leave a day early. Turned out, we did get a foot of snow between December 23 and Christmas. It was pretty! Some of our regularly planned activities did go on as usual…

Big Christmas Party

We had our annual Christmas party the Sunday before Christmas. Patrick’s stew was a big hit. We had a bunch of new people come – like some high school friends of mine who I were delighted to see. The nicest thing was that we had the basement set up for kids so the house felt a lot less crowded – and a ton quieter.

Cinderella at the Children’s Theatre

We saw our annual show at the Children’s Theatre with all of the Treacy’s. This year it was a Cinderella pantomime. It was very funny. Most of us loved the step-sisters, Pearl and Dorkus. Aine and Bridie loved Cinderella.


Presents

Another big highlight was opening presents! It was definitely an electronic year for us. Partially that’s what everyone wanted; partially that’s usually easy to pack for a 6-month stint in Ireland.
