Merry Christmas!



I hope y'all had a Merry Christmas and were able to spend it with the ones you love! We spent Christmas Eve with some of my family. There were about 19 of us, I think, all stuffed into my cousins home. We had a lot of great food and family time. I am so thankful they welcome us for the holidays!



We spent today at home. It was like a monsoon outside, so I'm glad we didn't have anywhere to go. I cooked a turkey, which was wonderful. I love turkey! We had some sweets too. My cousins gave us a pecan pie and a nut and coconut cake and I had made Treasure Cookies. They are quickly becoming one of my favorites!



 Sadly, Santa didn't bring me a camera for Christmas, so my pictures are still off of my video camera.  The kids, however, were well-taken care of.  Mitchell said his favorite things were a Nerf gun and a transformer he got from Santa.  Hunter really loves his toy CD player his dad got him and a truck given to him by his cousin.



We also discussed the importance of Christmas and how God gave us the best gift ever, Jesus!  Hunter doesn't really understand yet, but he did ask all day if we were going to church.  It's so cute, he'll say 'wanna go church'. 



Tomorrow our best friends are coming down to visit.  I didn't think we would be able to see them, since our van has been broken for over a month now.  I'm so glad they are coming, I have missed them!

We had a white Christmas... well, there wasn't any new snow, but we still have some on the ground from last weekend.

Those treasure cookies look interesting. I discovered my new favorite cookie this year; chocolate covered cherry cookies. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas Nancy!!! (I love your new cut) Looks like y'all had a great Christmas. We also were lucky not to have to brave the monsoon Friday. Everyone came to our house. Happy New Year!

sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas Nancy. I must ask though, what is it Hunter is holding in the last picture? It looks almost like a stuffed animal but then it seems he's pulling things out of it.
