So I am actually completely and totally ready for Christmas! All food I am cooking is gotten, all presents gotten, all the stocking stuffers gotten, and the house is clean except minor picking up tomorrow late afternoon.
I am having my mom, sister, nephew, hubby's son, hubby's mom, grandma and sister over tomorrow night for dinner then presents. I am cooking a honey glazed ham, rice/broccoli hotdish, mashed potatoes/gravy, sausage stuffing that is super yummy and easy to make, corn, rolls, deviled eggs, a meat and cheese platter, and of course my Chex mix that I make every year. It is cooking as I type so it can cool overnight.
Then on Christmas morning we will wake up and the kids will do their stockings and we will get ready to head to my aunt's house where my daughter Alexis lives to spend Christmas Day with them :)!!! My daughter will then come home with me and stay with me until January 1st. I am SO excited. I love her so much. I will get pics and add them after Christmas. This year has been so stressful yet so exciting getting ready for Christmas. My hubby is a scrooge with a capital S! Yet the happiness in my heart that I will be spending it with ALL of my kids this year is so amazing to me.
This beautiful girl my daughter who has not been a part of my life for almost 10 years is now back in my life and I have been honored as her mother to get to know everything about her. She is so sweet! She is so much like me in so many ways. It truly is a blessing to have her back in my life. She was my missing puzzle piece. She has completed my heart and it has made me so happy!
Well I need to go get the Chex mix out of the oven. So I should wrap this up and say to all of you.................
to all of you! Just in case I am not back until after Christmas day. I hope you all have a wonderful day and love your friends and family, and get good presents lol! Oh and take LOTS of pictures to share with us ;)
Love you and hugs, Robyn
