Today was supposed to be the day cowboy and I were going to start eating healthy after all the” jillions” of calories we have had in the last few weeks. This morning we talked about it over Monkey Bread and Vanilla Wafer Cake and big cold glasses of milk. This is the way it goes every year for us. The truth is until every last bite of leftovers are gone we will continue to eat. We will both have yummy turkey sandwiches for lunch and again will down them with a big glass of milk! We will have our choice of ten left over desserts. By tonight I will be ready to throw everything out because, frankly, we will be miserable. It has been one big party in my mouth, but I am about ready for it to be over!
Yesterday we celebrated Christmas dinner with our wonderful friends. My friend is the ultimate hostess. She decorates her Christmas table the day after Thanksgiving every year. Each year she has a different theme and it is always the highlight of the year to see what her theme will be. This year she used her Nutcracker collection around the house and also used nutcrackers on her dining table.
She and I purchased this lovely Christmas china at Target a few years back. It was so nicely priced and we think it is cuter than the higher priced Christmas china. It just goes to show that you can have lovely looking table for very little money. My kiddos love this china and look forward to eating on it every year.
We had delicious food as you can see! It was a nice change from the turkey we had on Christmas Eve.
We also had a toast with some very nice tasting champagne! I LOVE my friends amber champagne flutes.
Here are Golly and Zobi all dressed up for Santa. They love being all dressed up! They just prance around showing us all how pretty they look.
Dogs are ready for a Christmas Day nap! Too much prancing.
We really are blessed to have shared Christmas not only with family, but with good friends. These are the treasured memories we will hold in our hearts forever. Our hearts are totally overflowing with special Christmas memories…
