Friday afternoon snuggles with my favorite littlest one.
bonus points for popcorn & wine, Charlie Brown Christmas and a daughter who captures the moment on my phone.
Saturday morning Angel Breakfast with my favorite biggest one.
We didn’t get off to a great start; Charlie cried “back to my house now, Marmie” most of the way to church. But when we pulled into the parking lot and I showed Charlie the littlest kids’ playground – steps and two slides – he put on a big smile. Two rides down the slide and he was ready.
Especially once he saw all the food. Angel pancakes, angel fruit kebabs, egg casserole* and – I’m pretty sure this was his first one – a donut hole. Also apple juice.
He could hardly wait for me to take the photo (“cut it, Marmie”). And then we went back for seconds.
After that we read a story, made a paper chain and a manger ornament and – finally – went outside to the “big” playground.
I’m not sure if the food or the playground ended up being his favorite, but I think he liked both of them well enough that I’ll get him to go again next year. a new tradition perhaps?
…then this was the beginning of a very un-Marmie Sunday…
which also led to a very un-Marmie Monday. but the tree is up. the lights are on. and there is a very special tree upstairs for Charlie to decorate tomorrow.
hummm… maybe this Marmie should get to bed so she’s ready for Tuesday!
*thank you for reading this far! Charlie loved the egg casserole. I’m not so good with eggs. This casserole had eggs, hash browns and sausage. I know that’s really common…I’ve had many not-so-great versions. and that’s why I’m asking for suggestions – if you have a version you recommend, please share it! you can leave a link in the comments, or email me directly (my email address is at the bottom of the sidebar to the right). thank you!
