Urgh, still feeling sick. So, I guess it's a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse day for Angela so that I can sit around and rest some more!
True "extreme sports"
The girls 'helped' me do a lot of my holiday baking.
Which mainly meant that Angela ate my ingredients and made a mess.
Took our neighbors cookies- a great annual tradition!
We spent Christmas Eve at the beach, with highs in the 80's
Natalie loves sweet potatoes so much that she scraped the peels clean after I steamed them for sweet potato casserole.
After our Christmas Eve nativity reading/playing with the new nativity set/opening Christmas eve jammies. Angela had wacked Natalie right on the forehead and given her a giant goose egg for the occasion.
Sampling the cookies, making sure they're good enough to leave for Santa
Waking up Christmas morning and immediately heading to the stockings to check em out.
Santa got Natalie these awesome pokemon figurines, fortunately Angela got her an encyclopedia of pokemon to help us identify all the non-indigo-league ones that we don't know
Natalie received, as a gift from her cousin, this little baking set to make cookies. She begged me all day on Christmas to make cookies and finally I let them do it the following day.
Here is what used to be my view from the breakfast nook. I sure will miss the beauty of this tree!
And here is the stump before being ground down. The lower part of the trunk had a big hollow center where the wood had rotted. Yikes! You can sort of see it in the middle of the stump here. Definitely much safer now.
