Merry Christmas!

I would like to take a moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a fabulous day! We spent the day hiding away at home, cooking, lazing around and not doing much of anything but watching Dr. Who (which was AWESOME!) and catching up with relatives overseas!!

I won a giveaway last week for Welch's Sparkling Grape Cocktail Juices and the package arrived yesterday!! My children thoroughly enjoyed drinking out of the flutes that came with it (and the juice itself) - I then used them for my home made non-alcoholic egg-nog today and that went down a treat too!

The turkey took FOREVER and a day to cook but it was SO worth it when it was done! The cake turned out fabulous too and everything pulled together wonderfully! I have enough turkey left to feed a small army and a ton of food from all of the food that I bought with the backing of Aldi (see previous Aldi post)! The kids will enjoy all of those sandwiches and cake and trimmings all week long!!

Aside from the food we've cooked today, I actually came home last night to find several boxes of tinned goods on my living room floor! Someone at my husband's work gave them to him and stocked us up for the near future! If ever the world decides to end again, you should all come around to mine! - All joking aside, this year has been very hard for our family and so the help is MORE than welcome and very much appreciated! It is nice to have a stocked pantry and not have to worry about where tomorrow's dinner is coming from! I am eternally grateful to have such wonderful, loving and caring friends! The only way is certainly UP!

We have had 5 days of Christmas fun now and I have had a great time visiting with everyone AND even receiving the dusting of snow! It is back to normality tomorrow though even if everyone I know seems to be  getting rather sick!! Let us hope we bring in 2013 without too much of an incident and roll on the New Year!!!

Much love and Seasons Greetings!
