After months of jam-packed weekends, we slowed way down on Friday to enjoy...
Leftover homemade split pea soup and bread -- the perfect it's-Friday-and-I'm-too-tired-to-cook meal.
Popcorn and hot chocolate to go with Game Night, declared by Eldest and Middlest, who pooled the last of their allowance to buy Monopoly.
Two three-hour long games. (Half that time I spent in jail.)
Peanuts' holiday specials on DVD -- "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," "The Mayflower Voyage," and "I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown." (I have to say, I do appreciate the newer specials, simply because the kids are less likely to use the word "stupid" in reference to their friends and siblings...)
Repeat twice. Try not to get so distracted by Snoopy that the banker takes your Monopoly money.
A little Christmas knitting in between turns!
And, of course, a few headstands on the couch for good measure.
