Lamb curry, veggies and ribs made for a delicious Christmas Eve dinner! Everything was paleo!

Our Italy family sent us a traditional Christmas cake from their area. Before we opened it, it was wrapped in what looked like a lampshade!

We dressed up the cake with espresso and melted chocolate. This was not paleo, but it sure was delicious.

On Christmas Eve we gathered at the Weldon’s house for a family celebration.  We missed our family in Italy and our family who had to spend Christmas at the hospital with their new baby girl.

Christmas Eve ended with snuggles and began with snuggles.

Elijah’s dream was to get an RC Helicopter.  He is improving his piloting skills every day!
Face Time with our Italy family was a highlight of our day!
Betty has a natural nursing ability.  She notices boo-boo’s, isn’t squeamish about blood, and loves to check everyone’s hearts.  I overheard her telling Matthew: Take a deep  breath.  Take another breath.  No joke.  This girl is a natural.

  1. Cora did that at a young age too! SHe would give us check ups and tell us to take deep breaths, and another one, etc. So cute!
