Merry Christmas Eve, 2013

OMG am I tired.   Why do I think the floors need to be cleaned they are just going to get dirty again. I guess it looks nice.  Boys should be wheels down, Gabriella is counting the minutes, no literally.  Grandmama it’s 2:33.   Grandmama it’s 2:54.  What time do you think they will be here.  Maybe 3:30.  No, I am sure Midway is a mess today so are the roads.  I love having her around.  She keeps it real.  I remember when I was her age, waiting was agonizing.  She got me to open her present from her and her mom.  It was a, “Build a Bear!!”  They built it to look like a Blackhawk.  I have named it Kaner.  I just love it <3.  Well I just took a break, still have a little cleaning to do so I’ll be back when I have some pictures to post.  Hope I get a video up of the boys coming home.

So  my Gabriella and daughter, Lizzie got me the coolest present.  They did “build-a-bear”.  I have named him “Kaner”!!!  He is so cool.  Gabriella told me how she picked out the bear and all the clothes.  So thoughtful, they know how much of fan I am.  I told her I was going to watch all the games with him!

IMG_0780So my guys made it home for Christmas. It was so good to see them and have them home. They were so tired. They had 2 shows (Nutcracker) on Sunday and 2 shows on Monday. That was after they had been dancing Nutcracker the whole month of Decemeber and dancing on the road. I know how demanding doing shows is. Let me tell you it is a hard, hard life. I am so very proud of my boys and what they do. I thank God for the beauty they bring into this world.

So we went to Autumn Leaves (Lizzie’s Job).  It is good to go see the old folks. They get so happy to see people..  They just love the little ones.  Matthew and Connor got to see what their sister does.  They were proud of her.  Then we came home and got ready for Santa.   I was cooking as usual.  I alway cook on Christmas Eve.  I made my overnight sticky buns.  I got the recipe from my good friend Cheryl Wilson.  I couldn’t find the recipe or the pan I usually use.  We moved this year and I still have unpacking to do obviously, but they turned out great.  So I am a rock star !!!!  I also am trying a new recipe. It is overnight blueberry french toast.  Got done cooking and went to bed.  It is great having everyone home.  It just feels like a warm bed.  You just never want to get up.  You just could let the world pass you buy.  That is how great is having the ones you love close by.   Merry Christmas
