Random Christmas Jibber Jabber

Since I totally ran out of time this year before Christmas, I didn't even get to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I apologize that I didn't get to it before now. You know, it is only two whole days past Christmas.....What can I say? I had planned on posting some cute Christmas picture or some such, but I didn't even get to look for that. They are still on my camera (and hubby clearly stated not to post the goofy picture of him playing, "Guess who I am"). So, here I am. I am going to let you know a few things that went on at my house over the past few days.

Here are some random things heard at my house over the past few days:

"Mom, jackets are for nerds!" (I guess we all are nerds then) "I didn't eat all of the tootsie rolls" (Yeah, right. Then why are there two empty containers?) "He's been here, he's been here!" (Heard throughout the house at exactly 5:00am Christmas morning) "The reindeer's dropped carrot bits all over the driveway!" (This was discovered once the extremely heavy fog began lifting Christmas morning) "Rudolph's nose must have gotten a workout last night" (Yes, I admit to this one- you could have cut the fog with a knife Christmas morning) "I only have 5 more days until I have to go back to work" (This came from a workaholic at my house) "You got me something from ETSY!!!!!!!!!!" (I was thrilled to hear this one from my niece) "When is it my turn on the computer?" (I hear this all of the time- not just at Christmas) and the one that almost brought me to my knees:
"Bring two sugar free apple pies, a mess of Lima beans, and a broccoli casserole." (I had three hours to pull this one off-it was a miracle. Don't' let anyone tell you that miracles don't happen- especially at Christmas time.)

Here are some things that I learned during the holidays:

It is possible to make homemade cream of mushroom soup.
There is a such a thing as eating too much heavenly baked ham.
Cooked, yeast rolls can be frozen and they still turn out alright. My refrigerator is way too small for a holiday meal. 60 devilled eggs was just enough this year for everyone- thank goodness! There is a such a thing as too much sugar free pudding in one's diet. Who was I kidding when I thought I would get to mop the kitchen floor before Christmas? No one noticed that my carpet did not get cleaned. I still love peanut butter squares.
Wrapping paper from the Dollar Tree is awesome. And lastly, I can play Guitar Hero and not make a fool of myself.

So, what did you learn this Christmas?

In all seriousness, things turned out great for my family. I hope the same went on for yours.

Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year (and a late merry Christmas),
