Oh y'all...I had the flu right before Christmas and it was awful! I've never felt that bad in my life! I was basically on the couch for a solid week. (Thank goodness for dry shampoo!) It was terrible and the reason why I've missed so many of your posts. I finally started feeling better on Christmas day, and for that, I was very grateful.
But leading up to the big day, my men had to do all the Christmas prep...all the baking, cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking. There was no way I could have accomplished all that with the flu. They did a really good job, without too much complaining. ;)
Here's our Christmas dinner not prepared by me...
Texas Pecan Praline spiral sliced ham, hashbrown casserole, seasoned green beans with bacon and Sister Schubert rolls.
They even made all these desserts, including that almond torte!
Christmas sandwich cream cookies, frosted sugar cookies and sand tarts.
Delicious almond torte.
It all turned out really well and we had a great Christmas. I hope you did too!
Some of the gifts my boys gave me...
I've finally reached "Crazy Cat Lady" status, y'all! I'm so proud! Actually, I think I've been one all my life. :)
And that Echo is pretty neat too. I'm always having Alexa remind me to do things. Much easier than setting an actual timer. Aren't we lazy these days?! What I'm not used to is my son talking to me through Alexa when he's not even home! Scared me earlier today when all of a sudden Alexa played her little tune and Logan started asking me a question. Ha ha! He uses the "drop in" on the Alexa app to scare me like that. He has an Echo in his room too and I can't wait to "drop in" and scare him as well. I think that's how I'll wake him up for school from now on. Ha ha! I have to admit, it is convenient and quicker than even texting.
Wishing you all a happy new year filled with health and happiness!
