We had a fun New Year’s celebration with family. There was games, food, laughter and silliness…. a great way to end one year and start out a new one.
Most of the family was off for the weekend so we decided to have a 3 day celebration. My sister and niece are staying 3 nights and we plan to stay up late, play games and just enjoy each others company… ya know, all the good stuff of life.
We had a nice, quiet Christmas with family playing games, visiting, laughing, enjoying each others company…. ya know, all the good stuff of Christmas. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
Started the day out with the normal chores, then did a little laundry, went shopping and when we got home we found a package had arrived.
Well, it was one of those days where we really should have just given up, went back to bed and started the day over again. But despite the rough start, the day actually turned out pretty good and best of all we got the majority of our Christmas baking done.
Making gingerbread houses is a fairly new tradition for us that started several years ago. It’s turned into a great way to make memories and spend time together during the Christmas season. This year we found gingerbread barn kits so we got a couple to try out. We gotta have barns and animals too, ya know?
It’s Friday so we’re up early to go skating! It’s so cold out the chickens don’t want to come out, the goats also prefer to stay in the barn, we have no idea what to do with the turkeys, and poop doesn’t even squish when you step on it. Yep… it’s that cold!
Its a family tradition to get the tree put up the weekend after Thanksgiving. Every year Michael and I pick out a new ornament together and each of the kids pick one out. After 26 years we have a wide assortment of ornaments and have found our tree holds a little story of all the years.
Our family came to visit for Thanksgiving. We had great time hanging out, catching up and having good ole fun.
It was a busy day! Started out with chores, then we got a new to us dishwasher delivered, and ended the day watching the lighting of the Christmas lights at the park.
