This is our second year to attend this special event. I have this dear friend, Susanne, who is from Germany. She has lots of traditions that she likes to incorporate into her family’s life here in America. Lucky for us, some of those traditions are parties, in which we are invited to attend!
Molly was absolutely awestruck at last year’s party. And although Saint Nicholas wasn’t a surprise for her this year, she was still completely invested in it. Sam was thrilled beyond belief.(Okay, Sam is thrilled about going to the grocery store or picking Molly up from school or eating breakfast. He’s just that kind of kid. But he was over the top with this party!)
After all of the excitement, we all sat down to a dinner of “Eatball Soup.” It was actually wedding soup, but several years ago, one of the kids dubbed it Eatball Soup and the name kind of stuck.
Either way it was delicious, made with veal meatballs. Ummm, hello? Veal meatballs? Seriously yummy. Don’t hate me for loving veal.
The adults wound down with some fun conversation. While the kids wound down with a nice Christmas movie. On top of Michael.What a wonderful memory for the kids. And what a relaxing evening for us adults, as well. Thanks, Susanne and Michael. You’re the best!
