dinners with cousins and uncles and aunts and grandmas and grandpas each night
pears in honey and pine nut caramel from deborah madison’s seasonal fruit desserts. (recipe here but a bit different from the book. go a tad easy on the butter and honey and use more pears in the pan)
cards upon cards being made for anyone and anything that pops into elisha’s head
elisha making these cards with extraordinary amounts of scotch tape and thread
the boys singing carols with gusto
elisha discovering and loving the muppet show. i’d like to consider this my christmas gift to him.
a certain christmas tree making us proud by drinking like a champ
