Today is Christmas Eve.
|Sampling the pretzels for our turtles|
But, we aren't. We went "home" our first year in Nebraska and though we had a nice time, found it was just too much, driving between my parents town and Bart's family's town (2 hours). So, we've stayed in NE during the holidays and have overall enjoyed ourselves, even if we do miss our family...and the massive amounts of GOOD food.
|All three boys made the turtles by themselves, from opening ALL those rolo wrappers to placing the pecans on top. I just put them in and out of the oven.|
While at Target, I bought a new vacuum on sale for less then $12! How awesome is that?!?! We need a light weight vacuum to tote up and down 3 sets of stairs, so this stick vacuum by Dirt Devil was perfect! It sucks great, too!
Tomorrow we will open our presents (Brennan keep making our wake up call earlier and earlier...I told him that I am VETOing his suggestions and saying 8 a.m.), finish cooking Christmas lunch, then enjoy the afternoon with our friends, the Peter's.
|Brennan is such a great helper and leader, too.|
MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!
