We had our second Christmas celebration tonight with Dad's parents. We changed things up a little bit this year. For the last 27 Christmases, this is how many we have spent together, and many more before then, Dad's family has had Aebelskiver and sausages for their meal. This year Dad wanted to make his homemade pizza and everyone thought it was a grand idea.
After our pizza supper we opened gifts, going from youngest to oldest. The best gift for Spark was a coin-sorting bank. One where you put the coins in and they sort themselves out according to what type of coin they are. When you want to get them back out you flip a little level sort of like a gum ball machine and they come back out in a tray. We had to keep calling him to back to the present opening because once he got that gift he just couldn't stop playing with it. I would have never in a million years thought to buy one of those as a gift for him. The best thing Dancer got was Scrabble Flash. Oh my is it hard to put down. Start playing it and before you know it an hour has gone by, well if you can play it that long with someone standing over your shoulder wanting their turn.
The last Christmas for us will be just the four of us on Christmas day. If Grandma Pat, who is a labor and delivery nurse, gets put on call that could change.
