  8. Is it totally lame that I'm having a Christmas/Dominion party with Christmas cookies? For the actual day of, I'm hoping it won't snow, it won't be freezing cold, and I'll get to eat a ton of delicious food and drink apple cider. (I love sparkling apple cider.) And then too, I'll get to watch my kiddos open their gifts, and that should be a lot of fun. What are your plans?
