My eldest arrived safely on Monday night! It felt so good to hug him tightly and squeeze!! He has grown!
I didn't know kids kept growing at 22 years of age!
My brother isn't coming home for Christmas thanks to a blizzard in the north, wreaking havoc at the job site and work didn't get done by deadline! Spoke with him on the phone today, he was working, trying to make up for lost time. I feel sad that he will be missing from our party tonight!
I'm missing my sister!
Had a blast shopping with my Shane last night until well after midnight. We forgot to eat supper, sooooo we committed an unpardonable sin in this household, we went through TACO BELL's drive through. (Remember my hubby is a chef and is MEXICAN - so perhaps you see why this whole TACO BELL thing is forbidden in our house!?) But Shane and I sure had fun breaking the rules after midnight! hehe
We are NOT having a traditional home cooked Mexican Christmas Eve meal tonight! (I think the earth just stopped spinning!) What with hubby's unemployment for two months and now in training at the new job, stress levels have been a tad elevated. Therefore, we made the decision to go "SIMPLE" tonight. One huge pot of penne pasta with meat sauce and cheesy garlic bread will be our fare tonight.
Glad we have lots of yummy desserts in the house!
Can't wait for the Banana Walnut Cake to arrive from Wright's Gourmet Deli!
I'm so happy we have a beautiful home, a loving family, a job, and even some gifts under the tree this year! God has truly been faithful in caring for and loving us!
Merry Christmas to all!
You are loved by this humble blogger!
