Christmas was fantastic. shodoshan and Kayla come over for Christmas eve. We went to see Tale of Despereaux with some really good pizza from around the corner, then came home and decorated the christmas tree. Fire in the fireplace, eggnog and later hot chocolate and it was fun, yummy evening all around.
We slept way late, especially given that Kayla is just 12 years old. Morning was relaxed and fun, with lots of happy moments.
Then we packed them off to go see Kayla's grandmother in Reno. Highway 80 was a lot less accommodating, and they had a lot less joy on that trip, sadly.
