Christmas night always makes me feel a little....sad, I guess. All the crazy errands, baking, sending packages out, wrapping, shopping, listening to those Christmas songs, and then in one day, it's over. We had a very nice day. It rained, so no white Christmas, but it was ok, we had a white, snowy week.
This past week was so busy, had an order for 5 gift baskets that I put together and shipped out on Monday. Made a delivery on Wednesday so the folks wouldn't have to come down our icy road. Al's mom and dad made it in on Tuesday, and that was a wonderful visit! I ran some last minute errands yesterday morning, and then just tucked in today.
We opened presents this morning, had a wonderful breakfast of bacon and eggs, a simple breakfast, but on Christmas morning, it was special! Of course, even though it's Christmas, those cows want to be milked! ;) So, off to the barn we went, Emily carried her new toy dozer to play with in the sawdust. I grained the girls while Al got the milkers turned on. It wasn't long before Emily was missing her new toys at the house, so we went up to the house for about an hour. Then went back down and I threw the hay into the girls. Finished up milking, and made sure the Christmas music was playing for them.
I was so tired when we got to the house, so I laid down and took a nap. It felt so good!
Fixed a yummy glazed ham, potatoes au gratin, lemon-pepper green beans, sweet potato casserole and warmed up some store bought rolls. YUM!! That reminds me, we have some leftovers that will be calling my name soon...
Planning on dropping off a couple more goodies tonight after Al is finished with the milking and I finish cleaning our hamsters cage. She'll like the new bedding for Christmas.
I did cut up some cheese for tomorrow. I still hate that I missed last week, and I'm sure I will hear about that!
Hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Keep in mind the reason we celebrate!
