Minnesota December

I’m not sure how we managed this, but it’s been a lovely, calm and quiet December.

Lots of gray skies, and tea, and candles, and changing into pajamas at 7pm. This year Christmas Eve is going to be small and quiet as well – just us, my brother, sister’s family, mom, and grandparents. We’re planning on baking pizzas from Costco, and ordering take-out sauce and meatballs from Vescio’s Italian so no one has to do too much cooking.

And, of course, STAR WARS! Have you seen the new film? Are you planning to? We are going this Sunday. I didn’t even know I was such a big Star Wars fan, but apparently I’m really excited for this…

What about you? Any fun Christmas traditions?
