this past weekend marked our annual velvet-pants-mikey-coco christmas celebration. the lovely lloyds showed up on our doorstep late saturday afternoon, and it was 24 hours of laughs, presents, yummies, and all-around holiday merriment.
saturday night menu:
homemade baked apples
sweet potato rounds

steamed green beans
salad ala coco
assorted ice cream for dessert
afterwards, we tried to play a game but couldn’t stop laughing, then coco and mikey and i stayed up late talking. (poor pants went upstairs to put sky to bed and never made it back down. i found him asleep on sky’s pillow when i went to bed around midnight.)
