anyway. there was lots and lots of fun, tears, squeals, and food to be had by all. the hardest part of the day was after dinner packing overtired children into a car for a bit of a drive home. especially when two of the three stayed awake for all but five minutes of the ride. here's hoping to many, many more crazy adventures like this one!
and on that note...we are out of here tomorrow morning very early to head down to the land of jersey for ten days. all of the gift making is done and packed (i hope!). i brought along with me some knitting and embroidery gear in hopes to work on a project that has no deadline!! happy holidays and happy solstice!
