Yes, it’s my first post! And I’m not quite as fancy as Drew with his pictures yet, but I thought I’d say happy holidays to all of you! It has been a great holiday for us! And we still have two more days of family visits ahead!
We are both so delighted to have such wonderful families and friends to celebrate the holiday with!
We hope that you have had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!!
Well, it is Christmas time again. Last night Allison and I went to my sister Tara’s house for dinner and gift exchange with her and her husband Erik. My Grandfather Rick was there and so was my Uncle Jim. My sister Shelby and my mother and father also were in attendance. And Erik’s parents Bonnie and Howard also came.
We had a very fun night with lots of laughs and some fantastic presents that suited everyone’s interests. Like The Sex Life of Plants, a book that Tara received from Bonnie and Howard. That and another book called The Bastard’s name was Bristow. They were big hits.
eBay is a wonderful thing and can help you find all sorts of great gifts. Just ask Allison, she received a couple of vintage sixties Pyrex bowls with Amish People on them from her friend, Peg.
Last night Allison and I returned home and exchanged gifts with my parents. Then we came upstairs and exchanged our gifts together. Allison is all decked out with AB gear for the kitchen. Alton Brown, for those of you who are not on the Good Eats bandwagon yet. He’s a great entertainer and we met him.
Later this morning we are off to see the Allison’s parents and exchange gifts with them and enjoy the baking wonders that Allison slaved over yesterday. She made THREE PIES! That’s a lot of pies. I know, I wash the dishes around here. Anyway from us to you, Merry Christmas.
