Grace had her annual Christmas party last night. We had the usual crew plus a new friend and Millie. I think they had a good time. I had to get yelly about bedtime and I was terribly mean about not letting them have a snack at 10:30 after a full dinner, cookies and s'mores.
They played outside a bit. They tried on all of Grace's costumes. They decorated cookies. We made s'mores successfully. They watched Elf. This morning we had pancakes and juice. Half of them came to church with us and half went home. It was stressful because Grace also didn't want to help clean the house to get ready for it. And she didn't want to help clean up her room that they trashed. But she's working quietly now and all is quiet on this rainy, cold day.
