So here we are, three weeks before the December and January holidays. Three weeks before I see all my boys again. It was a very fun, relaxing, loving visit with everyone. We didn’t go anywhere. We had one friend come over. A single man without family in the area. We ate well. Played Ticket to Ride and Dutch Blitz. There was singing and guitar playing. There was talking and discussing. There was some political/social talk that sneaked in but it was calm and cool. I am always educated when we all get together that is for sure.
I requested a picture of all five of the kids for my New Year’s card. It got done on the morning everyone was leaving. Just in the nick of time. It took a while. It isn’t easy getting a good shot of five kids, even though three are adults. The sillies got started and then the tiffs and then finally we got a few good ones. I will share them after I go through them all. There are a lot.
For now, we are all cleaned up and back on track to finish our homeschool projects and then move right on to the gift making and decorating for the holiday season! I do have a menu to share!
Monday: Pork chops, brussel sprouts and cubed yellow potatoes
Tuesday: Beef roast, red potatoes, and broccoli
Wednesday: Slow cooker beans and bread and veggie
Thursday: Oven baked chicken with brown rice and delicata squash
Friday: Shaved veggies over pasta with teriyaki sauce
Saturday: Turkey Soup (of course!)and crusty bread
Sunday: Red curried vegetables with Jasmine rice
Have a nice week!
