As is tradition for the Asplund family, we gathered at the Rodens for the reading of the first stave of A Christmas Carol. Not wanting to arrive empty-handed, we quickly made some Ebilskivers to share. Claire and Rachel Asplund were able to join us as well.
John had gotten a new phone that weekend, so Griffin was entertained by some of the new games, but most surprisingly, he seemed to be listening! The trickiest part of this tradition is finishing the book. I always hear the first stave, but don't progress past that point unless I watch the movie. This year I was fortunate enough to go see a junior production of it with the fifth grade, so that helped bring the spirit.
