Christmas Eve is always spent at Eric's grandparents' house, and Santa visits us there. Asher had a tantrum because "there is no food for me to eat!" at Eric's grandparents. Eric's parents were ready to drive back to their house to get him an uncrustable. I said NO WAY. Not humoring his crazy pickiness- there was plenty of food there for him to eat.

Saturday night we had a birthday celebration for Charlotte and her cousin Chandler, who is 1 year and 1 week younger than she is. I made her another Hello Kitty cake (I had made one for her birthday the week before) and Chandler got cupcakes.

Eric got an extra gift from his parents- his mom's cold! So he has been feeling lousy ever since. Even so, we had a wonderful holiday, with no major crises, lots of fun, and lots of family time. We are already getting questions about when we will have Christmas again, and Charlotte is STILL asking for more presents. We are trying to wean off dessert for breakfast, but not having much luck- I think we are still at 3 desserts/day.
I am so delayed in posting everything- it has been crazy over the past month with holidays, travel, Charlotte's birthday, and I organized a bake sale at the kids' school... I'll catch up someday, I hope!
