Learning as we go.

Heading... Back to Reality....

Christmas was quite busy and wonderful all at the same time. We talked to Lil D about Jesus' birthday and the meaning of Christmas.
We started off the celebrating at Grandpop's house this past Saturday. The food was delectable, the wine was smooth and satisfying (esp. the Lucky Star Pinot Nior), and time spent with family was heart warming.  All 3 grand kids each received a bike & helmet from Grandmother and Grandpop!



On Sunday we finished up shopping and running errands. (Note to self: none of this last minute business for next year) It snowed on Christmas Eve for about an hour and a half or so!!! That was AWESOME! Lil D was excited:) We sat out cookies & milk for Santa and celery & carrots for the Reindeer.
After we got Lil D to bed, I made shrimp with butter, lime, and Old Bay. (I didn't have a lemon on hand). I also made scallops wrapped in bacon. We had a little cheese ball as well. I must say this was the best snacking while wrapping presents! Hopefully soon I will figure out how to link the recipe to my blog.
Christmas Day was busy with opening presents, playing with new toys, and preparing food for dinner.
In upcoming posts I hope to be able to add my recipes and some tabs for better organization!  


  1. Hi Angela! Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas! Can't get over how time flies and how big "Lil" D is already. Enjoy every precious moment with him as it appears you are. Happy New Year! Carol Wright
