I picked up L.M. in the afternoon, and brought her to the house. I helped her make a costume jewelry necklace with red beads of various sorts and plastic "pearls." She gave me cherry blossom lotion and body wash, and various kinds of cookies from her dad, including homemade pizzelle and chocolate blossoms (cookie with a Hershey's Kiss in the middle). Her Aunt P. picked her up in the borough near me.
Mom and Dad and I went to the 10:00 p.m. Christmas Eve church service. Father K. was kind of losing his voice, but he got through it.
