Ok, as the title says..I had a very busy weekend.
We drove home and sprayed it with the water hose to get the dust and bugs off and then put it in the stand. The tree is left outside overnight to dry and let the bugs find a new home.
We(Jeff, Nick and I) spent Saturday afternoon and evening with Jeff's brother, Jerald and his family(Danna, Brent and Marissa). Ashlee and her boyfriend, Dominic came over with a huge pan of smoked brisket and baked beans. Danna(Jerald's wife)made cheese dip, guacamole dip, and a vegetable tray. I brought cheese ball and crackers along with cookies, peanut brittle and chocolate haystacks. We feasted on good food all afternoon. The guys shared stories about things done in their younger years. Lots of laughs. We watched movies in the evening and finally headed home around 10pm. It was a most wonderful time together with family.
Sunday came and we brought the tree in.
It was the best Christmas present our children (Ashlee, Nick, Ellena)could have given us. I had the best time ever and told Jeff we needed to have date nights more often :-). Wonder if I can get the children to pay for them...lol.
Well that is it for now. I feel like I have overblogged this time....but just had a lot to tell and wanted to let everyone know how wonderful our children are. We love them very, very much.
The weatherman is now saying we might have a white Christmas..of course he is using the ICE word more than snow, but at least we might see some white stuff.
Hope everyone has a great week. Travel safe if you are heading somewhere for Christmas. Stay warm and enjoy family time together.
