Saturday, December 31
What a FUN Christmas it was! We had family in town for the first time in 5 years at our house, Davis LOVED getting into all of the presents and i cooked a full meal for 9 people! My first ever 18 lb turkey and it was a HIT! (Think Paula Deen seasoning and spices!) I was even told it was the best turkey they had ever had. I'LL TAKE IT! (So turkey, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, mac and cheese, roasted veggies, corn, Happy Birthday Jesus cake, dressing, and many other things.)
And it was all in good timing b/c Santa brought me all kinds of new cooking things. A new dishwasher, new KitchenAid mixer (which i have wanted since we got married almost 5 years ago!) and new pots and pans!
And we had another HAPPY one in the house with all of this Veggie Tales stuff! Movies, blankets, stuffed animals, figurines, etc.
And we decorated like crazy and i even made a pinterest creation: a burlap wreath! It turned out pretty well.
In all honesty, this was the hardest year of my life in so many different ways. I am somewhat happy it is over and i am ready to see what 2012 holds. I pray for God's continued blessing and provision in my life, which has never changed.
Merry Christmas, HAPPY NEW YEAR and may 2012 hold a better-than-you-have-ever-imagined future for you.
