All the 'creatures' slept in late and are currently enjoying the treats of the Holyday weekend! Today is a day of pumpkin pie for breakfast, MASH dvds, nuts & bolts (my great-grandmother's recipe for chex mix), laughter and thankfullness!!
We had a wonderful day yesterday. (Santa used to do his job and be done around midnight-1AM ... but over the years and with teenagers in the house, he has had to change his arrival till around 4-5AM!) The job was finished and another couple of hours of sleep later we all awoke to see what 'Santa' delivered!!
We arrived at my brother Marc's house by 10:30.... he, my sister-in-law Darlene and nephew Ethan age 9 live around the corner in the next town (maybe 15 minutes away). My parents beat us and were already enjoying their tea & coffee!! We had a delicious brunch for 11 of us and then shared gifts! What fun!!! Mid-afternoon we came home to put a turkey in the oven (not stuffed) then went to Pete's sister's house to visit with her & her husband and their mother!! The drive was easy and the visiting was relaxing.... and by the time we got home we were all ready for a good meal and a warm bed!!
GUESS WHAT?? We woke up this morning to SNOW!!!! No more dreaming of a "white" Christmas week!
Hope all of your Christmases were as blessed as ours was!!
