I Forgot.....

I forgot to talk about how the kids did with Christmas this year. Our daughter didn’t wake us up until about 9:30 (yeah!!) and she opened her stocking on our bed with us. I took a quick shower and got ready while she and hubby went downstairs and looked at the tree. After I was ready my son and everyone else that was there was up and ready to open presents (of course there was still way too much tension to really enjoy everything). My daughter ripped through things and pushed them aside. She lingered on the Baby Alive doll, but even that got pushed aside because there were more boxes wrapped in wrapping paper. My son on the other hand opened one present and told us to “open” the box. He was done. He was happy with the one toy he opened. I can’t even remember what it was! I think my daughter finally finished opening his presents for him on the Wednesday after Christmas. After all of her presents were opened my daughter had a lot of fun playing with them…she loved the pooping doll! She fed her and then changed her diaper. We then hung out until we started cooking dinner around 3:00. We had prime rib and it was the best one I had ever had! It was such a great meal! I think we only have a couple of the leftovers left, and let me tell you how sick of them I am! I’m not a leftover person to begin with (unless it’s from a restaurant), so the last week has been absolute torture – I could never throw the food away, but I’m just not creative enough to come up with different meals to make out of the leftovers.

I promise to try to post pictures soon…we got our professional pictures back and they look amazing! But hubby needs to order us our new computer so that we can hook the scanner up (he’s trying to wheel and deal with his Dell rep to give him a better price – good thing he’s in the computer business!)

Prime rib...YUM!! I am with you on the leftovers--not my thing. Looking forward to seeing the pics..yippee on the new computer--why can't I have someone in the computer business to get ME a good deal? My laptop is 3 yrs. old and making it known it's NOT feeling well lately...
