Christmas 2017

26 Dec

Let’s see, what’s happened since I last posted in November?

We recovered from Europe. Mike had a birthday. Michaela turned 8. San Diego experienced terrible wildfires, which had me working like crazy. Then, all of a sudden it was time for Christmas!

Mike’s mom and stepdad came to visit us for the holiday. They came during a week that Mike and I were working, and Michaela was at a week-long, all-day “Cooking Around the World” camp, so I feel like we didn’t get to see as much of them as I would have liked. But the time we had together was nice.

Santa was very generous with his gifts. Michaela got eight baby dolls – her current passion. Our house looks like a nursery. She got doll bunk beds and a doll toilet and doll diapers and doll clothes… Plus washi tape, books, a make your own computer set, board games, and more. I got a giant TV (woo hoo!), which I think of as a gift to everyone.


We had my parents and Mike’s cousin Maggie over for Christmas dinner, in addition to the five us of (me, Mike, and Michaela, plus Mike’s mom and stepdad). It was lovely. We had so much food! Ham and Thanksgiving sides, plus a beautiful cheese board, apple pie for dessert, and bacon-wrapped, goat cheese-stuffed figs that I made. And all that was after Mike made his homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and I squeezed OJ with fruit from our tree!



Basically, our stomaches were stuffed with food and our stockings were stuffed with gifts. A lovely day!
