Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . Joy's birthday party with family, then a trip to Menchie's with many of her friends (and their families). Joy had a blast, and we had fun, too.
. . . watching The Muppet Christmas Carol with my sweetheart. I love this film, and try to watch it every year. I like the yin and yang of Michael Caine's serious performance as Scrooge contrasted with the zany Muppets around him. The film's both fun and heartwarming, and it always reminds me what Christmas is really about.
