So yesterday (12/23/08) I spent bringing my girl friend to the ER. She was having severe abdominal pain. After blood work, pain meds, and a CT scan, they determined it was her appendix and she had to have it removed. About 10:30 last night was her surgery and after talking to her this morning, she seems to be doing better. Still in pain, but that is expected after surgery.
Thank Goodness she is ok!
Today is Christmas Eve! Lots of baking with a house full of kiddos! FUN!
So far I have managed to finish the no bake cookies and banana breads. I still need to bake Sugar cookies, Banana Cream Pie, Chocolate Cream Pie, Coconut Cream pie, Mince Meat Pie (for my grandparents...yuck), Lemon meringue pie and Chocolate pumpkin cheesecake. Plus cut up veggies and fruit to snack on tomorrow. I guess I should get my rear in gear....LMAO
We do this wonderful thing on Christmas that makes the day so relaxing! When we wake up, Mom and I start the cinnamon rolls that we have every year for breakfast. Then we open our stockings from Santa and Mittens from grammie. We eat breakfast. Then We have our Christmas tree (John, Jocelynn and me). Then my brothers arrive and we have the family presents. We have all kinds of snackie food to munch on all day. Fruit, veggies and dip, cheese and crackers and banana bread. When you are hungry for a meal, you help yourself to the pulled pork....YUMMY. So we never actually sit down and eat together, kinda just eat when we are hungry, but there is no stress.
Of course throughout the day we have family stop by, but we really don't have to go anywhere else. We may venture down to my SIL, but that is 2 houses down the street.
I am looking forward to the pulled pork this year, in fact John started last night and it smells WONDERFUL!!!!!
From my Family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!
