I know I have talked about Bell’s Palsy a lot lately, but that’s not all that’s going on in our lives.
We had a really good Christmas. Emily and Noah were spoiled rotten, of course.
A few days before Christmas, we went over to Nanny and Poppa’s to decorate Christmas cookies. The kids loved getting to decorate the cookies any way they wanted. Emily was having the time of her life! We were supposed to take some home so that we could put them out for Santa, but we forgot!!!!
On Christmas Eve, we went back over to Nanny and Poppa’s for supper and to open presents. The kids had such a good time! Noah was so excited. He got so many trains and Thomas the train things and even his other favorite thing – Old McDonald had a Farm game! And Emily got an iPod Touch!!! She had been wanting one and was just thrilled. She got jewelry and perfume and arts and crafts supplies and so much more.
Then we had to hurry home to wait for Santa! Even though Santa didn’t get any Christmas cookies, we had plenty of good things for him to snack on.
And Santa brought a lot of fun things too!!!!!!!!
Noah got a Thomas the Train bed and toy box.
Emily got a digital piano and a piano bench.
On Christmas Day, it was snowing. We didn’t get as much snow as the weathermen forecasted, but we decided to stay home. The weathermen had been forecasting snow for several days so we had a “Plan B” if we were not able to go to the family lunch.
Of course, we had sausage balls and hot chocolate for breakfast. And I made chicken and dumplings and hot water cornbread for lunch. We had also made green pea salad and deviled eggs that we were going to take to the family lunch so we ate those for lunch too.
The day did not go as we had planned, but it was a good day nonetheless.
Noah also got his first pair of cowboy boots! He didn’t want to wear them at first, but once he put them on he didn’t want to take them off! Sweeeeeeeeet!
