Posted on December 26, 2014 by lilydaraisJust pictures Santa came last night. The girls ran around for ten minutes celebrating their oranges. I often fear they are spoiled, and so that was a very refreshing way to start the day. Showing their oranges and candy canes to Bahzi. Thanks, Nana!! She loves him! Thanks, Balu! The girls LOVE their Elmos, and I adore my new Kindle!!! Abe took Lydia on his rounds to deliver neighbor gifts. We had a white Christmas! It was a wonderful surprise because it certainly hadn’t snowed a bit when we went to bed at 2 am, and then we woke up to this! I spent the whole day cooking. The desserts. I made braised lamb, pommes dauphine, kale salad, and rolls. Abe and I spent an hour peeling chestnuts for chestnut soup before we called i quits. All the chestnuts were rotten!
