Christmas in Paris

An amazing weekend... The weather was fabulous, and we tried to take advantage of it, even with Sophia's runny nose.
Today at church the children of the congregation performed the nativity, and Sophia was fascinated! She spent the entire service on our laps, for the first time since April, and loved watching the kids as they performed their roles. It was a great pageant, very reminiscent of the 1950s, and we loved it. It capped off a weekend of Christmas celebrations; Microsoft Christmas party was Thursday night (dinner started at 9 & dancing at midnight), then the Christmas party at the American Cathedral (Troy & I were part of the "4 calling birds" when we sang Christmas songs), and then the pageant during the service today. It was great to have the pageant during the service as well, it took the place of the readings and homily, and the children were wonderful.
She was a little confused as we opened gifts tonight, in fact she really didn't want anything to do with the tricycle we bought her, but she LOVED the stroller (a mini-maclaren version of her stroller) and once she understood that she could take kukula for a ride she had a great time! She also had a great time with her new "laptop computer". Our only problem with it is that it is a little loud.
We leave for Seattle on Wednesday, so we look forward to seeing everyone over the holidays...
I can't believe how much there is to do over the next few days... Love!!
