- Meredith: Justâ€” go with it, we’re being supportive.
- Izzie: Oh, hey! What do you think? Did I go too overboard? I know, I know sometimes I can go a little overboard.
- George: No, we love it!

Last night was our appetizer party with Couple Friends and Couple Baby. It turned out being so nice with just the five of us. If we had another couple there, I think it would have been too crowded. Plus, we were able to bundle up and go check out Christmas lights in our neighborhood.
We enjoyed a great dinner of all different kinds of appetizers. I made baked eggrolls, and I have to say they turned out delicious. I’d never made them before, but they were really easy to make.
We sipped on wine, and then gave Couple Baby his presents. I got him a couple of really cute outfits, and the best part was the singing Elmo Elf. He sings the Twelve Days of Christmas, and I think Couple Wife liked it more than Couple Baby. She was so excited, and it made my whole night.
After dinner, Couple Wife and I packed thermoses full of hot chocolate spiked with brandy and kahlua (we are so bad!), bundled up Couple Baby, and we headed out with the boys. There is this house around the corner from our new place, and they completely go nuts at Christmastime. No joke-Christmas exploded on that house. I don’t know if you can see it in the pictures, but he has a castle cutout over the whole house. You can’t even see the house at all, or the copper sinks. I wonder what his actual house looks like. I can’t even imagine how long it takes this guy to set up his workshop and the whole yard. He’s even run out of room in his yard, and has cutouts in all of the neighbors yards’. He has all of the disney characters, plus other cartoon cutouts that are all hand made.
There is a sleigh for the kids to have their picture taken, and a train for families to ride around the block in. I can’t wait until I have kids so I can take them to this house. It really is a wonderland.
