We had a great little family Christmas! It was the first time it was just the 3 of us, and it was really relaxing and fun. Lois got a lot of great toys and books, and she even got her first bike, a Skuut! She won't be riding it for a while, but we all still love it.
We also had a great Christmas dinner. One of our guests was our friend, Mark, a rabbi, so we had a kosher Christmas dinner! To start we had cheese, olives, and our friend Doug's homemade quince paste. We drank prosecco with pomegranates and Jason's homemade eggnog. We ate short ribs with pearl onions, polenta, roasted cauliflower, and a salad. Then we ate delicious thumbprint cookies for dessert. Great food; great friends. Christmas was a success!
And thanks, Lisa, for letting me borrow your great votive holders! They helped to make everything merry and bright.
