Christmas Eve we went to the candlelight service at church. Afterwards, the Brethauers came over for appys and a visit. Then it was time to put cookies out for Santa. Aiden wanted something healthy for Santa. ( a bowl of spinach) and Amelia wondered if Santa would like a rum ball.

December 4th was Dale's 39th birthday! I met him at Starbucks for a morning coffee date and then met him for lunch after some Christmas shopping. The kids and I took him running shoe shopping after work and he got a pair of waterproof shoes. Interesting concept for our climate. Then it was home for dinner. Grilled salmon, Israeli couscous and Greek salad followed by the perennial rhubarb crisp for dessert.
