Every year, we love to go to The Marriott Grand Hotel in Point Clear for Christmas brunch. This past weekend, we took the boys and tried to get a few photos for the Christmas card, which at this point, with three days to go until Christmas, doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. There have been a few years I’ve sent a New Year’s card, so that’s always an option. Trying to get these two to stop playing around and be serious has always been a problem.
And I mean always . . .
We had to chase the little one down to get him in front of the tree that year. There’s always a group of people waiting to have their photos taken in this spot, with the giant live tree next to the beautiful crackling fire. Even if it’s 70° on the Gulf Coast, the staff at the hotel always builds a fire for the cozy ambiance we all love.
