Sophie wore her new dress and cardigan—and fancy red shoes—from Gramma.
Then Gramma and Paw Paw came over for brunch (I made a surprisingly delicious apple coffee cake with crumble topping and brown sugar glaze) and presents.
Nini and Pop Pop came over that evening for dinner. And even though we were celebrating Christmas with my family a few days later, Sophie got an early Christmas present from them to use with her new table and chairs.
We now have daily (sometimes, hourly) tea parties. All are welcome to stop by for tea sometime. Although Sophie will insist you have cream and sugar.
Andy’s parents cooked a wonderful, traditional, Uhl family Christmas dinner—tenderloin, roasted potatoes and green bean casserole.
The day ended as all Christmases should—dress off, stickers on.
Oh, and of course, a nightcap of tea.

But at Christmas it always is young.” —Phillips Brooks
