I stayed home from church with Eleanor today. She has a bad cough and a sore throat. We watched "Esther" and then I watched a Time Out For Women talk by Wendy Ulrich. I took a nap while Eleanor made a paper tree for her fish and she wrapped a few presents for him. Then she watched "Jonah and the big fish".
We went over to my parents' house for dinner. My grandmother ate with us, too. We had a yummy baked chicken. It felt like Thanksgiving again! Minus the pie. I did make a chocolate pie on Friday for myself and the kids, but it was gone before the day was over.
Matt & the kids (except for Emily who was protesting) sang Christmas songs all the way home after dinner. I enjoyed listening to the seranade. :-)
