December the 25th
Keyton's program. He has inherited my Grandpa Mickey's singing voice - hence a speaking part.
Lola takes after another relative - her voice raising above the rest carrying the preschool show. After the program parents suggested I might want to sign her up for acting camp, a compliment I assume? My favorite part was when the teachers read the children's Christmas wishes they had made for others. Naomi wished her sister would get a pony, Jacob his brother would get a bike, etc. Lola's Christmas wish was "for my mom that she would get more sleep and dream of stars". I may have cried a little. Probably because I need more sleep.
Christmas morning spoils
Christmas dinner at the Eschens. Rowan and Keyton wrestled and made rubber band rings. Lola and Finn hid in the closet and took care of stuffed animal patients. Mads charmed everyone and hijacked any grandpa he could find. Nick and I ate good food and laughed a lot.
