Friday, December 23rd

Yesterday was our last day of work.  I can't tell you how much I am savouring the idea of two whole weeks with my family and not having to get everyone out quickly in the morning.  What a treat!

To begin the holiday, we decided to take the kids to the Nativity Pageant put on by a nearby town and the LDS church.  I have to admit, I feel a bit funny about the LDS part but a nativity play is a nativity play.  It was cold as anything but the kids enjoyed it.

Afterwards, we decided to go out for hot chocolate.  LB had never actually been in a doughnut shop before near the counter and when he saw the big case of timbits, he got very, very excited.  He emphatically pointed to what he wanted and had fun stuffing his face.

Oddly enough, after our treat, we went to do groceries.  We didn't know how LB would hold up but we didn't want to have to spend time in a grocery store on Christmas Eve.  The store was deserted and LB was great.  We were all exhausted when we got home but boy, was it nice to go to bed knowing that we were done all the big jobs.
