Within 30 minutes of arriving in Fremont I was decked out in my Christmas PJ's, cuddling my now sick baby girl instead. Apparently Noah is well on the road to recovery with what was diagnosed as bronchitis yesterday but he in the meantime had shared his germs with his sister. So while everyone else trooped off to Church this afternoon the Bean and I cuddled and watched "The Little Mermaid" and then some Mickey Mouse Christmas cartoons. And yes, I was disappointed, but honestly those were also two of the best hours I've had lately. Yet another reminder that plans can be made but they don't always go exactly as expected.
So after Church we had Christmas Eve dinner complete with today's celebratory food - Egg Nog! I do enjoy egg nog and actually found pumpkin egg nog to try out. Also a egg nog caramel candy that was fabulous! After dinner Mikayla put out the reindeer food she made at school (oats with glitter in it sprinkled on the lawn to attract the reindeer) and we of course put out cookies for Santa and fruit loops for the reindeer. Now my twosome is tucked into bed, though I can't guarantee they are actually sleeping. They've been reminded that Santa only stops after they are sound asleep.
Looking forward to the marathon that is the Kosakowski Christmas tomorrow. Merry Christmas, all!
