Matt got us all a present that he gave to us on Christmas Eve. We were lucky and got to have Meiling come over and spend it with us. Matt gave her yogurt pretzels and twinkies, me a Symphony bar (my favorite) and Sadie a box of gourmet chocolates. She (well, we all) were in heaven. It was awesome. Sadie even shared with us so that was nice.
I cooked all day and made a turkey, green bean casserole, potatoes, corn pudding, broccoli, rolls, and Matt cut up a watermelon. It was cool for me that everything turned out since I don’t have the best track record…
Matt put all this in a pot for soup the next day.
We skyped so that Matt could be a part of “We Three Kings” with Aaron and Seth. (That is tradition—every year the boys are the kings in the pageant and they sing all the verses very off tune. It is super cute though.)
Then we got to open our jammies from Mom Hoffman. Sadie loved the reindeer on her feet. And she loved the sheep on Meiling’s and mine.
Sadie loves Meiling and had a good time playing with her. Overall we had a good time. We read a story and lit the candle and enjoyed the night together.
