NOT what’s going on in BlogLand! What’s going on in my home!
I had an amazing Christmas!!! The boys and I had a nice early dinner out at a yummy restaurant on Christmas Eve. The boys and I visited family over the weekend, so Christmas Eve we were able to hang out and spend time together in our home.
This Mama’s favorite place is not in the kitchen. I love to bake but when it comes to cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner, I’d rather set a pretty table to admire and go out to eat. What’s your preference?
After our meal out, we prepared for Santa’s arrival by baking cookies. We made cookies and played games and the boys opened one present.
We set the cookies and milk on the coffee table for Santa, and boy, oh boy, did Sofy have her eye on those cookies.
Divorce is difficult for kiddos and I get that! I’ve been so grateful for Troy’s positive outlook on it. A couple weeks back he said to me, “Mom, you know what makes divorce ok?” Shockling I stared at him. “Mom, I get two Christmas’s full of gifts!”
On Christmas morning when the boys wake up the first thing they do is go and see if Santa came. Troy headed straight to the Faux Fireplace where the stockings hung. He grabbed his stocking and enjoyed digging out all the goodies. At this age, it’s full of candy!
After stockings and presents were opened, we had a nice breakfast of cinnamon rolls and bacon and then the boys got picked up by their Dad.
My Christmas day was amazing and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you, Sweet Friends, for letting me share a little about my day with you.
