I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas! Here at my house I felt so blessed to have all three of my children, as well as my husband all at home. It was for just a short time, but I was super thankful for it. Over the years we have spent many, many Christmases apart due to the nature of my husbands work, so it never escapes me just what a blessing it is to have him at home with us. The kids are all mostly grown, so work schedules don’t always allow for time off around the holidays, so I was just so super thankful to have them all here.
I do what any good mother of grown people would do when my children come home; I feed them huge, copious amounts of delicious home cooked meals and let them sleep in. There was Sausage gravy with biscuits, eggs benedict, ham biscuits, shrimp cocktail, Cinnamon rolls and a crazy good leg of lamb. It’s sneaky I know, but this ensures that they continue to keep the time brief in between visits. A mom has to do what a mom has to do!
We had a great time, and we even were able to use Face Time to be with our family back in Virginia during their traditional Christmas Eve party! Technology is amazing. What a time to be alive.
In other news, I have been slogging through blogger hell. Please forgive my recent lack of posts. Not long ago I realized that I needed to change blogging platforms <insert scary music here>.
To prevent your eyes from glazing over, I’ll just stop right there and tell you that: I’ve been doing that. And it was soul sucking and painful. However, thanks to the people at WP Beginner, it. is.done. And now I can get on with life and with blogging! YAY! So, I am back up, ready to roll and I am super excited about 2017!
Here are just a few pictures from our home this year.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
