The kids tried to wake us up at 5:30am but couldn’t. They tried a couple more times and by 6:30am they succeeded. We went downstairs to see what Santa brought.
Later in the day, the Steelers clinched a first round bye in the playoffs with a dominant game against the Texans.
While I was driving home from a couple hours of work at the brewery, snow flurries started. By evening it was sticking and we had the first White Christmas Eve in many years.
Steve (Biff), Renuka, Owen and Claire came over for dinner.
Eva had all her friends over for her birthday today. They painted ceramics, ran around, had cake and ice cream. Happy Birthday, Eva!
Hudson started a new writing unit this week, Persuasive Writing, and so begins his lifelong mission to rid the world of little sisters.
Hudson’s friend Bowie got tickets to Star Wars on opening night for himself and friends. A few days before the movie, someone dropped out so I could go with!
The showing was for 9:30pm (which was way past Hudson’s bedtime) so he got to stay up very late. Hudson and I Uber’d to Blue C Sushi downtown for dinner with Bowie and his family before the movie at Regal Meridian across the street.
