I was being extremely layed back about Christmas this year,
because we aren't travelling anywhere this year.
First time we are staying put in our 8 years of being married.
So, yes, Christmas snuck right up on me.
And, yes, i was the one in Wal-Mart yesterday trying to find some last minute gifts.
Anyhow, it really has been an enjoyable December so far.
Somehow, (thanks to a very busy little boy) i have not managed to snap many pictures this season.
Busy doing what you say?
Any place that you can climb is awesome.
PA girls meet in the south.
Back in the day.
When i was a teenager.
I used to hang out with these two ladies.
It just so happened that we are all married now and make our home in SC,
So we gathered together to chat and make Christmas candies.
There really is nothing like getting together with friends from your old stompin' grounds and hanging out for the day!
Of course, its different now. We tend to little ones and talk pregnancy and the such.
That was a weird feeling indeed.
I thought I'd be bawling my eyes out, but i managed to just get some tears in my eyes.
They did such a great job!
And i was quite proud of them.
Where two or more are gathered, making cookies is much more fun!!
We gave the children their gift from us last eve...
So much fun seeing their surprised reactions..
Last night we had our traditional family Christmas supper.
So far for tradition to be continued-
1.it must be candle lit
2.pigs in a blanket must be on the menu
Other then that its whatever the mom gets around to serving.
Last night we had
Carrots and dip
Caramel and chocolate fondue.
With banana, strawberries and apples.
Brownies and marshmallows.
It was a good time had by all.
Of course, candle light and fondue is interesting with a 1 yr old, but we won't go there. :)
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!
