Polar Express Night

Went for a cut and color so had a little "me time".  Then ran to Lord and Taylor for a few gifts.  With the exception of the wine store all my in-store shopping is done. Yay!

Relaxed the rest of the day and we had our annual "Daddy's Spaghetti & Meatballs" for our Polar Express dinner.  Love that movie and we make an event out of it to kick off the season.

Four years ago when we started the Polar Express tradition it was a Friday and my husband happened to be off from work and he made spaghetti and meatballs.  Daddy cooking the same dinner before the first viewing of Polar Express has become our tradition to kick off the season.  I usually make a classic comfort dessert from scratch - in the past we have made rice pudding, chocolate pudding from scratch.  This year we had...

Cranberry Apple Crisp!

Susan Branch's Autumn Cookbook

The fresh cranberries are tart, but with a little ice cream on top the kids gobbled it up
Had to sneak this in tonight. 
138 Christmas cards sealed and stamped.  Usually like them to go out first week in Dec, but they may need to go out so they hit right after Thanksgiving because the kids are into EVERYTHING!
Enjoying the first fire of the year.

The baby is sleeping and the rest of us are watching the Polar Express while it lightly snowing outside.

Happy Saturday all!
