My Favorite Scenes

I was going to pick just a couple photos, but we had such a fun day yesterday that selecting only a couple proved impossible. So I gathered my favorites and made a video.... it's not quite as good as being here was. No way to capture the excitement of a new PSP, an Honor-sized Princess doll, new dress-up gear, and Webkinz! We had kids and cats everywhere - except when they went to a friend's house (kids, not cats). We watched "Elf", which I'd never seen before - very cute! And Honor dressed up anything and anybody that she could get her hands on (watch out Anna, next time we visit, she will want to do your hair as often as you do hers!)

I baked a ham and rolls, macaroni and cheese from scratch (because Brad always teases me about my aversion to the stuff out of the blue box), and a nice dill-herbed zucchini casserole (with broccoli and cauliflower instead of zucchini, because I like to substitute - and Brad teases about that too). I also made a green bean casserole, substituting sauteed onions for the Durkee onions - because I didn't have any Durkee (and I like to substitute).

Today we've been completely lazy and stayed inside all day. New movies and playing new video games. More dress up, face paint, and playtime. Leftovers were good too. Internet has been up and down (mostly down) all day, so I'm only hoping I get this post finished and published today.
Enjoy!

Looks like everyone had a blast! I`m glad you enjoyed your Christmas. Did the sandstorm die down by then?

The lazy day-after-Christmas is always almost as enjoyable as Christmas itself. :-) Happy 26th!
