The day started out with some festive dress and food prep.
Then everyone arrived and we ate.
Talked and laughed.
With a healthy dose of icing and sprinkles.
And big smiley faces.
Then morning came and we ooh and ahhed at our gifts.
Including my “little engine that could” ornament for the family tree. (Love that story!)
And there were even doggie fortune cookies (chicken-flavoured, of course) for Lassie.
