You’ve never seen happier children than Emma and Henry at Christmas this year. Emma, in particular, was thrilled as she received a new baby doll, replacing one that she’d inexplicably lost while playing in our yard.
The joy on her face when she opened the doll and squeezed Marla tight will forever be one of my favorite moments as a parent.
The day was also filled with delicious food. Just before presents I made chocolate chip pancakes for the kids which they quickly devoured. Dinner was a turkey roulade paired with a fig-cranberry stuffing and ultra-healthy sweet potato casserole. Yum-o!
