Christmas #2: Cookie and Doc

Today was one of those great days, where everything went almost exactly like it was suppose to go.  We woke up early and picked up the older girls at 8:30 am.  CAM had a school event all-day (then a sleepover), so we had just enough time to grab a few Christmas gifts, before dropping her off.  Then we spent the morning in Loganville, doing a little shopping at one of my favorite local stores (Boss Brother’s Country Store) and having lunch with the Sheep family (BooSheep was feeling SO much better – she was pretty sick yesterday).

After lunch, we went home and spent almost an hour wrapping gifts.  A few had come in the mail, and we had picked up all but the last two this morning – so it was nice to feel almost finished.  The Littles watched Disney Jr, while OPM enjoyed snuggling on the couch and reading (something she WANTED to read – not a schoolbook).

Our dinner was at our favorite Chinese Restaurant, with Cookie and Doc.  A family dinner is our gift to Doc, he loves to enjoy the grandkids (and truly appreciates being taken out to dinner).  Cookie opened her gift – which, as GO said, was “sparkly…just like her”.

He was fussy until we gave him the fork and then it was ALL SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN - ALL THE TIME (seriously, I think he ate four pieces).

On the way home, we visited one of the best Christmas Light displays in the area, then put the Littles in pajamas and let them watch a goodnight show.  While I stayed with Went and GO, Otto took OPM out for a special froyo treat.  She had been such a huge help all day – and really spent it with the little kids, so it was a blessing to get to gift her with a few moments of “grown-up” time all to herself.

Now the littles are in bed, and OPM, Otto, and I are getting ready to watch one of our mutually favorite shows (the NCIS:LA Christmas Episode).  She hasn’t seen it yet, so Otto and I are excited to get to watch it with her!  A perfect ending to a wonderfully perfect day.

Happy 5th Night of Chanukah!  And Merry Christmas: Cookie and Doc Style!
