Kelly suprising us and getting home before the children were in bed rather than at midnight! I have never heard John scream so loudly or happily.
We had a little program and sang lots of songs.
Magaret looked cozy in the same pj's that Clara wore on her first Christmas.
The children didn't stop eating ribbon candy all christmas.
Cold and beautiful snow.
I made a yule log. The meringue mushroom were delicious and darling. The cake roll was not. ( I am planning on making jelly rolls all this year to practice.) I made and used clarified butter (I had never even heard of that.) I also made real buttercream (my goodness!!!)
We had a lovely dinner with Aunt Rhonda.
John said it all when while were writing in his journal I asked him "What was the best part about Christmas?" He replied "Having Dad here."
