Hello out there!!!!
Are you all still there??
I'm back online!! You're either thinking "O No!" Or "O Yes!" I do so hope it's the latter.
I'm back online after being off for about 6 weeks. And let me tell you, the past six weeks have not been my favorite! But here we are, in our Hometown again, in Our House!!!
I noticed that I lost a follower.....whoever you are, please come back! I have so so SO many things to post about that I hope you won't be disappointed.
We had our first Thanksgiving in which I cooked (almost) the whole meal myself, with Hannah making the potatoes and Samantha making two pumpkin pies. It was just the 10 of us this year, praise our merciful Father. I felt no stress, no anxiety, no pressure to perform as I got up this morning, early, and began to cook. It was actually the most relaxed holiday we've ever had, in my opinion. We were able to be very relaxed and low-key this year. Our menu was turkey, ham, cheesy potatoes, stuffing with sausage, mushrooms and onions, Brazilian cheese puffs, green beans and corn, and gravy. It was all scrumpalicious!! It was the most peaceful, most laid back, nicest holiday I can remember. When dinner was over and everything was cleaned up, we watched The Lion King on VHS (GASP! Yes, we still have a VHS player) and then we played Yahtzee, which I royally lost, big time. Now we're doing a final clean up and getting ready for bed. Bliss, I tell ya!!
So, now that I'm back online, and now that I plan on being around regularly, let me ask a few questions: Do you stress out about the holidays? Do you go all out and fancy? Do you host gatherings? Or do you just do you and your family?? I'm looking forward to hearing about how you do things around the holidays.
