Christmas eve morning started with me waking up feeling a bit like death warmed over. Geric wanted to call all 16 people and tell them that Christmas Eve was cancelled, but that’s just sad. So, I sucked it up and made my Nana’s gnocchi and my Grandma’s caper chicken, which I hear was quite delicious. I didn’t eat anything that day. Here’s my pretty table decorations and Jacob opening up Christmas jammies from Auntie B.
And here’s some of our guests (DeVincenzos and Nelsons):
After dinner, we went to church, where there was no child care. I could go on and on about this, considering it was a two hour service, but I won’t. Instead, I will just say that I heard it was a nice service and Geric did a really good job when he gave his little sermon on the shepherds. I didn’t hear it because I was entertaining my kids in another room with 4 other mommies. 🙂
Christmas morning was fun. Caden woke up super excited to see if Santa had come. The cookies had been eaten and Rudolph had bitten off some of the carrot, so he must have been here! He was really excited about his new easel and a train set with pirates. Jacob was very excited about the paper and the ribbons.
Yes, that is a binky in Caden mouth… I know he’s too old for it, but he only uses it to fall asleep at night, so whatever!
I stayed sick until yesterday, when I fianlly started feeling better, and then Caden took over for me. He seems to be feeling a lot better today, so that’s good. Hopefully, we’ll all be healthy by new years!
