We NEVER serve dessert at our home, so our fun activity tonight was to have a holiday dessert after dinner. Daddy stopped at the store on the way home from work and picked up my personal holiday favorite- pink Peppermint ice cream!
And look who's here to enjoy it with us! Grandma Mary arrived from Phoenix today to spend some time with Alex and me while Dave, Carrie and Grandpa Bob take a quick ski trip to Snowbird. Alex is excited to have the extra attention, and I'm enthused to have the help during this busy time of year!
Let's see--- what else did we do? Well, earlier today Alex and I attended "Twas the Night Before Christmas" at the Stages Theater in Hopkins. While the kids performing the show were very good, it did tend to drag a bit and Alex was definitely hard-pressed to stay in her seat, not make loud comments (like "Where did the fairies go? MORE FAIRIES!!" during an adult male soliloqy), and generally not fidget.
