First Christmas

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Sure DH and I were dating last year and Christmas time however because we'd only been dating a few weeks and he was on the road we agreed on not exchanging gifts so this was are first Christmas together. While dealing with an ear canal infection he helped me with making my sweet treats.

We made:
homemade date bars
homemade sour cream cookies
white chocolate covered pretzels
white chocolate covered ritz cracker cookie sandwiched with peanut butter

Plus I baked a meatload and he made home-fried potatoes for dinner that night, yum!

On Christmas we had cinnamon rolls with some sausage and bacon for breakfast befor heading to my moms for the afternoon. There we played games, watched a movie and hard the traditional fair of ham with baked beans, polish sausage and potatoes and of course pickles and olives, lol.

Later my son and sister paid for us all to go bowling and we had a blast.

Christmas day wrapped up our Christmas weekend. We had gone shopping Saturday and Sunday plus to the Holidazzle parade of lights in downtown Minneapolis and he had a blast. He also paid a visit to a "slimgenics" center to see about their program but neither of us in keen on supplements but we are trying to find a way for him to successfully drop some weight, so far despite our efforts he's gained 40lbs in 5 months, sigh.

This kids are kids, they are annoyed by him but I am exceptionally happ and blessed to have the family, friends and sparkfamily I do. In addition I am blessed with a job and good health, and oh so much more.

On to New Years and new challenges (maybe self imposed but they count).
