Today’s song is “All My Heart This Night Rejoices,”an extremely beautiful song. I worked yesterday while #2 son mixed up cookie doughs, and then baked intensively while waiting for the other kids to arrive, so we now have approximately two quajillion cookies. I’ll be spreading them around a bit.

#2 daughter brought us a new movie to watch: the new CGA version of “A Christmas Carol.” I had wanted to get people out to look at lights, but no one was in the mood for that, so we watched the movie and then played games.

We’re going to bake some more today, and put out a buffet spread, and play more games.
