The Christmas spirit has taken over my husband!

Brian's parents sent us some money to take the kids out to dinner for Christmas. They were very generous, which put Brian and I in a generous mood also. We told them we were going to go out as a special treat and they could pick anywhere they wanted to go. They choose Chuck-a-Rama. And to my utter shock and amazement, Brian agreed! (This is the first time in over eleven years of my knowing him that we have gone to Chuck-a-Rama together. And the experience was everything I ever dreamed it would be...) The kids thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. Brian didn't complain. I'm pretty sure I burned off most of the calories I ate as I had to wait on everyone in my family except Jacob. And the best part, we still have enough money to go out to eat as a family again... or perhaps Brian and I will sneak off for a date night at some place that has actual waiters and no indoor play lands.
