Lacrosse season started, and Henry began practice. That's him in the middle.
Sophalofa sophed around in her room, listening to music
I used one of my favorite old cookbooks
and made Chicken with Dumplings
Oliver and I had a genius idea and executed it:
We bought exceptionally beautiful nautical-themed ornaments from my favorite west side store, DH Rhein, and hung them on silvery branches inside a beautiful ceramic vase made by my best friend, Moye.
The ornaments are so gorgeous, but our execution less so. It's always difficult to transfer brilliance from the mind to reality.
Here's Day One of over all Christmas decorating chez us.
And here's our tree, bought by The Husband, Henry and Oliver, dragged in with much squabbling and competition which I ignored because a very wise person recently told me that it's natural for grown men and their boys to compete with one another constantly. O.K.
(Jesus Christ! is what I thought to myself as I bit my knuckles in another room.)
Stay tuned for more execution, hopefully perfect, more squabbling and peace on earth, goodwill amongst men.
