I am determined to get caught up on blogging! I am so far behind and I don't think I will ever be caught up! So Christmas comes first. I was very nervous about Christmas and how we would ever be able to pay for it. We pulled it off by some Christmas miracle though. We actually received a check from a medical bill we over paid! For those of you who have medical bills like we do...you never over pay...in fact you are lucky to pay! I don't know how this happened, but it did and it was just in the "nick" of time. Between that and Santa Grandma we had a pretty good Christmas.
Every Christmas eve I make a turkey dinner. I invite anyone who is willing to come. This year it was my Mom, Dad, and my brother and his family. I have to say I make a pretty MEAN Turkey. I love to cook when I have the time and it usually turns out pretty good. Although we didn't have York this Christmas he was with his egg doner... I mean mom. I think this is the first Christmas in about 8 years we have not had him. It was kind of sad. He missed all our traditions... dinner and of course there PJ's we open for Christmas eve.
Christmas was fun and exciting for the kids. I think they got pretty much everything they wanted. The highlights were...
Guitar Hero III for York, Geo Trax for Cache, Airhog for Mason, and Dylanns Little Pony's. Of course all the kids loved the WII we got them. We bought that so long ago and it was just sitting in our closet for Christmas. So many times Eric and I just wanted to open it and play it ourselves!
It was such a great Christmas and I am so thankful for all of our many blessings.
And my turkey... yes I took a picture but it do not give it justice to the taste!
