On the walk home, the mood had dramatically changed. I turned to my once surly husband and asked him why he was grinning. He dreamily replied "I saw Santa." It seems I am married to a five year old.
We saw Santa too!!!
While some may think that eating too much turkey causes sleepiness, apparently so does seeing that jolly man with his reindeer.
When we got home and I whipped up a batch of white chocolate macadamia nut cookies to take over to our first Christmas party of 2006!
The princesses unwrapped presents.
Showed off their new shoes!
Munched on broccoli. (The food of Princesses!)
Were wrangled by punk rock Uncle.
At the end of the night, I was giddy on too many glasses of wine. We loaded up the exhausted girls as they squealed with delight that it was snowing! Oh how I love this magical time of year.
