Pray the kids don't eat so much chocolate while playing dreidel at
aforementioned gathering that they don't sleep tonight.
*Eat nacho dip and watch "Friends" with Dave. You may have seen evidence of this on Instagram, and if you don't follow me there, you should. It's my favourite app; I even like it better than Facebook. gasp.
It was an intense dreidel game, as always, and the kids didn't get to sleep until after 10pm, but then they slept well all night, so we'll call this a success.
Not pictured: Joseph and Mary recuperating after their pushing match to get to Baby Jesus first. I guess they were both eager to hold him and there were all these sheep in the way.
some Channukah decorating as well.
Thankfully I don't really care how the kids put up the decals in their rooms, which is good because Rachel organized hers by colour and Sam hung his so the "Channukah" can be read from outside, but not the "Happy." :)
And here are some things which weren't on the list:
*Figure out how a piano works.
*Bribe the kids with breakfast at Tim Horton's to have a really fast shower before church. Discover Tim's now serves oatmeal and It. Is. Delicious!
*Have an indoor picnic for lunch on Sunday. This was all Rachel's idea, by the way, although she wanted to eat outside. We compromised.
And we even had a fun adventure on Sunday afternoon which you can read about tomorrow.
And now I'm off to bed so I can cross "Get three good nights of sleep" off the list, and so I have energy to tackle the list I have for this coming week.
