Anticipation


After a bowl of our traditional Christmastime Cioppino complete with King crab legs, mussels, cherrystone clams (I'd leave those monsters out next time), shrimp, calamari, scallops, mahi-mahi and my mom's freshly baked sourdough French bread,

Cioppino

We got the kids in their new Christmas pjs and let them each choose a gift to open.

Grammie and Grandpa John got to open one too, but their gift was packed in the strangest styrofoam material we had ever seen. With just the slightest touch, it crumbled apart into statically charged little balls. It was a hard to resist and before we knew it we were having a indoor snowball fight - Owen won!

Then it was off to bed in anticipation of Santa's arrival...

AWWWWWWWW! Those pj's are so stinkin' cute! The in-door snowball fight sounds fun! (Until you have to clean it all up of course! LOL That Styrofoam always clings to my fingers and everything else!)
