Scenes from Christmas, complete with the flu

I got all my shopping done early and for once I actually wrapped everything before Christmas Eve. (Fist bump happened with Bill, because usually Christmas Eve he takes the kids out looking at lights hours while I wrap endlessly…..and he calls asking “can we come home yet?” several times).  This year I will get to go with them. Whaddayaknow!

This week I am enjoying some time with the Bill, the kids, dogs and the flu. We have had 3 of the 4 down with it, and now Bill has something or another. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a row of antibiotics on the counter.

Scenes from the last week or so follow…

Le Christmas tree.  I absolutely love a flocked tree.

Skye ate a few of the sand dollars off the tree.  Yes way. Butthead.

Mia and a friend made a  french vanilla cake cake with peppermint buttercream frosting. It was delicious and so sparkly and sweet.

We did this and they liked it.

Getting a quick run in while shopping.  Stress reduction to the max.

Even the dogs were tired from all the activity.

She sleeps like this all the time.  We love hers so much.  Even when she eats our ornaments and fights with Honey (another story).

I am planning Christmas Eve and Christmas day food.  Bill wants to do something different for Christmas Eve but I can’t imagine that day without the Feast of the 7 Fishes.  At first I was all “Over ruled!!” but then thought maybe this year a change would be fun.  Looked into Danish meals (my fathers grandparents were from Denmark and we are Vikings, by God!) but we will see.

Hope you all are having a Merry Christmas time!  Make it count!
