Happy, sugar and fun filled day
My parents are able to come for Christmas Eve dinner. Last night I made them the dishes they'd enjoy--haddock the way they like it (breaded and baked with butter), salad (with picked daikon, which they enjoyed), spinach, and carnival squash. I made a sour cream cake as my mother loves that; she zoned on the fact that I was going to make a sour cream cake and came to my place with pie. So I have an apple pie in the fridge and am looking forward to some very unhealthy but delcious breakfasts this week.
I even made it to my church's Christmas Eve service--a lot of carol singing in a candlelit church. The final song, Silent Night, is always sung as we light individual candles. It was beautiful, though I think my yelping from the dripping hot wax marred the end of the song (those cardboard protectors aren't worth, well, cardboard).
All in all, a good Christmas. Though I'm ready for a nap.
