Snapshot Summary: December 18-24 Merry Christmas!

December 18-24 
Merry Christmas!

This week:
Quentin had three performances as Tiny Tim
Katie made gingerbread cookies, which Sam and James decorated
we drank gingerbread lattes
Alex, James, Steven and Katie went to Betterton's model train show
Katie and James saw Santa, a live nativity, rode on a fire truck and sang carols throughout the neighborhood
Oh, a wonderful pudding! Bob Cratchit said, and calmly too, that he regarded it as the greatest success achieved by Mrs Cratchit since their marriage. Mrs Cratchit said that now the weight was off her mind, she would confess she had her doubts about the quantity of flour. Everybody had something to say about it, but nobody said or thought it was at all a small pudding for a large family. It would have been flat heresy to do so. Any Cratchit would have blushed to hint at such a thing.
made little chocolate Christmas Puddings to give to the fellow cast members of A Christmas Carol
"A merry Christmas, Bob!” said Scrooge, with an earnestness that could not be mistaken, as he clapped him on the back. “A merrier Christmas, Bob, my good fellow, than I have given you, for many a year! I’ll raise your salary, and endeavor to assist your struggling family, and we will discuss your affairs this very afternoon, over a Christmas bowl of smoking bishop, Bob!” – Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
made a Smoking bowl of Christmas Bishop for the cast party
Katie and James gathered mistletoe and...
Katie made a beautiful mistletoe ball

Sam read The Night Before Christmas
set out cookies and milk for Santa
