We hope and pray everyone had a very merry Christmas because we surely did! We love this time of year because not only do we get to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, we also get to enjoy time with family and devour all the delicious food together. This Christmas was one of the best for our family. The kids are at a great age for this holiday and it was a true joy watching them open all their presents. Not only was Santa good to Evan and Reese, he was also good to Tim and I.
Evan’s favorite gift was his punching bag and gloves set while Reese’s was her princess bicycle.
My parents bought Tim and I a new Dyson to add to our collection. It’s the cordless DC44 animal. It’s amazing how free you feel when there is no electrical cord. You become unstoppable!!!
We just love our new cleaning toy and it helped make Christmas cleanup effortless and painless. Tim has always been our designated “vacuumer” in our home. He’s got some smooth moves and I just can’t compete with them. I always make sure to tell him how sexy he is when cleaning. I’m sure every wife can testify to the instant transformation that happens when their husbands start cleaning. It can’t be fully explained, but it’s a fact!
After Christmas festivities, New Year’s Eve celebration was next on tap. We celebrated in southern style and ate Frogmore Stew, a.k.a. Lowcountry Boil. If you’re not a Southerner or never heard of it before, it’s a mixture of corn on the cob, sausage, potatoes, onions, and shrimp. Our shrimp (hard to see, but it’s all underneath the potatoes and corn) was fresh off the boat. Literally. My parents drove to McClellanville and bought them as soon as the shrimp boat docked.
It was absolutely delicious, but my hands still smell shrimpy.
Tim and I are extremely excited about 2015. Lots of new things are happening already for us and I can’t wait to see it all unfold. It also makes me very nervous at times, because we will have a kindergartener in our home come August 😦
Wishing everyone a very happy 2015!
