This was Bennett's first time at a restaurant, and he enjoyed plenty of cuddles in his Uncle Bobby's arms.
I got to enjoy a big peppermint mocha - my all-time favorite holiday beverage.
Orelia enjoyed a couple of pink pancakes and a cookie before scampering off the go nuts in the playroom.
Bennett hung in there like a champ and immediately fell asleep on the car ride home. It was a very merry Christmas Eve morning. We spent the evening feeling festive and walking around Christmas Tree Lane in Palo Alto with some friends. After the kids went to bed, I spent the rest of the night playing Santa. Being a parent on Christmas Eve is pretty spectacular.
