The holidays are just around the corner, and this year has been especially fun. Sofie is very excited about Santa and she went to two theatrical performances: The Holiday Extravaganza in Warrensburg with Mimi and Uncle Parker - Matt was scheduled last minute to work and Uncle Parker was a good sport (but it was complete with tap dancing, ballet, Santa's Elves, sparkles, and Sugar Plum Fairies, and also yesterday, we had the ultimate holiday "girl's day out" with Trinity and Kate and some other great ladies and their girls. We saw the KC Ballet's "The Nutcracker"! Sofie wore her holiday dress and we curled her hair. It was so much fun. Just before intermission she was fussy, and toward the finale as well, but other than that, she really enjoyed herself.
Matt can be heard singing Christmas Carols and Sofie hasn't bothered the presents under the tree at all! The dogs are enjoying the cold weather, and I'm enjoying the beginning of my two-week vacation. The mornings are very quiet before everyone wakes up, and I savor that time for ME. :)
Dad and Penny are snowed-in in DC, and we won't be seeing them as planned today, but it will all work out and we'll have a great time whenever we get to see them. Mom is hosting Christmas Eve at her house and on the menu: brisket and homemade mac and cheese - and vegetarian broccoli cheese soup just for us! Bob and Jeanne are hosting Christmas Day at their house and this year will be nuts! with kids opening mountains of presents. It will be loads of fun.
