Sadly we're not celebrating my favorite holiday today. The French school system fails to see that my kids should be off today. :) But, thinking we may move it to Sunday when we have time to cook, nap after eating, and even catch some football on the internet with Sky TV! :) Now, if I could just import some family....it would be perfect.
With that being said, I returned home today after gathering T from school to find that Santa had come to visit. He had been shopping at Harrods and thought of us. Seems he wanted to tell the family that we'd been awfully good this year and should celebrate the American (mommy) T-Day with some traditional English (daddy) Christmas goodies. What a great way to start off the holiday season. Pass me a mince pie please!!
