This was probably the most relaxing holiday we've had in a very long time. I LOVED it! The weather was not so lovely friday morning but i was determined to get to Waterloo to do some non essential shopping. Thankfully Grandpa Kevin graciously offered to drive us (after we begged him).
Christmas morning we went over to Mom & Kevin's a had a fabulous meal. Then at 1pm we headed over to Bea & Genes and had a fabulous meal (do you see a trend here, lol). It was an absolutely perfect Christmas day.
New Years Eve was pretty low key. Tom has been terribly sick so we opted not to infect any of our friends & family. This was the first NYE we've been home alone in many years. I got up early and ran to walmart with mom to get the ingredients to make broccoli cheddar soup (from scratch. do you have any idea how long this takes? i didn't.) I got home and started that as well as buffalo chicken dip, chicken enchiladas and reese peanut butter brownies. Dan and i took some snacks over to Kev's garage and visited with him & Dean for bit. You can see Dan's contribution to the can pyramid below. I took both kids to the fountain for a malt. I put the finished edge on waverly's quilt (that i started in 2009). By the time Tom got home from work i was pooped! We had a little dinner, watched a movie and were in bed by 11:30pm.
