Christmas Eve Part 2

We took the boys to see the new Star Wars film and we all loved it. For the first time in my life I actually clapped at the end of a film (yes, shoot me). I got a little choked up too in a couple of places. The boys sat, transfixed for the full film too, which was a first. Success!

Afterwards our neighbors came over for drinks and a game of "pick a fudge" with the kids. We toasted Eric with a shot of Maker's Mark and it was ok. No tears and no blubbering. I'm proud of myself for not crumbling and ruining the night for the kids.  It was a perfect night and I felt like we honored Eric by having fun and toasting him. I felt like he saw us.
