The Christmas Holidays have begun

Today. . . finally . . . the kids got out of school early and our Christmas break has begun.

Tonight we had our "fancy" Christmas meal. It was so delicious. We ate it all and took no pictures -- but here was our menu.

Martinelli's sparkling cider.

First course : Cheddar Cheese and Broccoli soup, french bread, oven roasted shrimp and cocktail sauce.

Second course: Steak, brussel sprouts (with craisins in a balsamic glaze from, sauteed mushrooms, and a salad (romaine, gorgonzola, pears, almonds, and red wine vinaigrette).

Right as we were eating our last bite (by candlelight no less-- ) there was a knock on the door and it was SANTA!!!!! The kids were excited (to say the least) (except maybe Owen -- you'll laugh at the photos of him!)
