We had a great Christmas Eve dinner with great friends. Chad's Beef Wellington was delicious (as expected) and my birthday cake was yummy, too. The kids were so excited to see each other and barely slowed down to eat...that is until they saw they cake! Caroline spent most of the day in princess attire and for some reason decided that she was ready to put jammies on right before dinner. Tucker was a cutie in his Christmas outfit.
The wind was blowing like crazy last night. The lights flickered a little and then around 8:30 the power went out. We still enjoyed each other's company in the candlelight and the kids calmed down a little. They tended to stick closer to the adults. Our friends left a little after 9:00 and the power finally came back on around 9:30. We were all glad to have electricity again, as it may have been difficult for Santa to do his job in the dark!
