Last night our good friend Dan came over with cloves and beer and lots of laughs (as is his way). David and I had a lovely evening together (we didn't get to sleep till after 2). Then our day today started with fresh baked banana chocolate chip muffins, the making of paper lanterns and chains and snowflakes while listening to big band Christmas music and watching the girls dance around to the Nutcracker songs played big band style. Then off to the gym for a quick workout while the girls played. Now to get clean, have lunch and get our Christmas tree which we will decorate with our usual flourish. Tonight I get to see Aaron Strumpel and Todd Fadel and throw back a couple. *happy sigh.
