This year we talked Tyler and Emma into having Friendsmas at our house. Our home is more Christmas-y than theirs anyway.
We decided on making an Indian themed meal centered around a wild turkey Brooke's grandpa had shot before passing away. We seasoned it Tandoori-style.
Since we were making the turkey I asked Emma to bring over some Indian sides. This turned out to be a pretty good meal.
Meadow loves her brussel sprouts.
Anything that reminds of her first love: collard greens.
Long arms kept trying to steal food off my plate.
"Tyler, let's act candid."
She pretty much ate everything.
After dinner we exchanged gifts. We got Olive and June a giant pad of paper, big crayons and a sequence game.
They got Meadow a couple of new outfits (this is going to be perfect for our Northwoods New Year) and blocks.
June wanted to open them for Meadow.
She was too distracted rolling around the house.
She digs 'em.
We got Tyler and Emma a baby cocoon for Emma's newborn photography or a giant hat.
We also got them a french press for camping. That way they'll have coffee when we all go camping together next summer. Hint hint.
Tyler and Emma got us the new color lapis to add to our Fiestaware collection.
After watching a few fireplace videos it was time to put the kiddos to bed.
