We had a great weekend and survived having three extra boys overnight Friday with no working oven. Our Plan B for supper went over well with them.
Plus Friday night we got a call that the oven part had come in early so James was able to install that Saturday and we are back to good in the kitchen.
Saturday night the kids took part in our church Christmas concert. Afterwards Santa arrived and met with kids.
Madeline wanted to wait in line, but when Santa asked her what she wanted, she couldn't come up with anything. She makes me laugh. On Sunday night, when it was way past her bedtime and she was still holding out on sleep in her bedroom, Madeline yelled out to me in the living room. "Mom, you know that Santa that I was talking with? Do you know his number? He said to call him when I thought of what I wanted. Tell Santa I want the Vikings to win each time they play." I told her I'd call him or she let me know that he said she could write him a note too. I didn't have the heart to tell her that even Santa would have a hard time making that wish come true.
Sunday after church we bought our Christmas tree. The kids had a great time (so did we) walking through and looking at all the options. This is the one that we decided on. Merry Christmas!
