On to New Years...

Well, Christmas was pretty uneventful for us this year. It didn't really feel like the holidays. We didn't even have snow for Christmas! So far, we have missed 3 major snow storms since the season has started! I can't say that I'm very disappointed! Snow to me is just another obstacle in the daily activities! However, it would've been nice to have a white Christmas! Sometimes having a good snowstorm is so exciting, though. Only if you don't have to drive in it!!!
On Christmas day I received two Fiesta Snowman family luncheon plates and the 2009 Holiday ornament from Younkers. I had the ornament already, but I could always use two! LOL! I also received my fair share of Red Striped Fiesta dinner plates, the new HLCCA pitcher, and a Carhartt sweatshirt. We didn't do alot of "gift-giving" this year for Christmas. We figure everyday is a holiday with Ebay purchases and lots of dish friends!

I can't believe 2010 is on our doorsteps! This year has flown by so quickly. This year we are going to enjoy a quite evening at home. Last year, John had to work due to a storm and I spent my night all alone! When the ball dropped I had no one to kiss except Rizzo! LOL!

Merry Christmas...

We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! We are having a very simple, Italian Christmas this year. Lasagna, salad, bread sticks, veggies, and pecan pie are on the menu. Both my mother-in-law and I were not in the mood for a traditional Turkey/Ham menu. She is cooking so I suggested Italian. It will be quick and easy.

I hope Santa treats you right this year! I wished for more Fiesta!!!! It always makes me smile :)

15 Days until Christmas...

Are YOU ready? We've decided not to give gifts this year. After all, we are in a recession! We are also remodeling our kitchen and all of our funds are going into that. We are putting in heated tile floors. Winter in the north is not kind to our tootsies!

My Favorite time of year...

December is my favorite time of the year. I love the holidays and the excitement it brings. The decorations, music, food, and treats. It's all good!
