Simple Sunday – Celebrations

Yesterday my friend Amy and I hosted our yearly Christmas party.  Yup, that is me in the reindeer antlers.

Christmas Party time

It is always a great celebration with plenty of tasty food, merry drinks, and fantastic friends.

It was also a celebration in that I completed my final project for fall semester (*insert fist pump and happy dance here).  I am on break for two weeks, as are Cody and Carter, and I am so looking forward to slowing down and spending time with them.

We are hosting Christmas at Casa de Shoes on the Wrong Feet this year.  It will be a small gathering with my mom and a couple of longtime friends coming to spend a night or two.  I plan to make a roast with veggies and popovers for Christmas dinner as well as baking several cookies and various festive goodies to nibble on through out the holiday.

All the shopping has been done and most of the wrapping too.  I love this time of the year and cherish it even more knowing that the magic of the season will not be forever in the eyes of the boys.  Cody is already questioning how it is possible that Santa can do everything he does in a single night.  Carter is still hook, line, and sinker – there is most certainly a Santa and of course, his reindeer fly.

    Unfortunately, I was without the internet for a week due to a broken cable and leaning post (!), so am only now catching up with blogposts. I’d like to wish you and your family a belated Merry Christmas and I hope you’re all enjoying the festive season. 🙂

      Well I am glad to see you are back up and running on the internet. We have had a wonderful Christmas time and are enjoying the last days of winter break. I go back to school (college classes that is, and only one evening class a day) tomorrow but school (elementary and my practicum classroom) doesn’t start until Monday. I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas too!

        We had a lovely Christmas, thank you. Routine is creeping back in today, though, which is a bit sad after the break. I probably won’t take my decorations down until Saturday. I’m glad you all had a lot of fun. 🙂
