This Christmas Eve was spent with the Delaney family in their home over gluhwein, lasagna, dessert and salad. The kids did that rambunctious thing that a herd of five kids do on Christmas Eve- they hollered and screamed, they wrestled and ran, got quiet for a moment and started over again. It was great fun.

After that, we came home to open our Christmas jams. The boys got TMNT jammies while the girls got out Disney Minnie Mouse ones that we bought on vacation. The kids said a tearful goodbye to the elves and they were off to bed where they crashed right out.


So sweet. Thank you for sharing xoxoxo

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
