Good Monday morning! This weekend was just what I needed after a full week back after Thanksgiving. Friday afternoon we went Christmas shopping (for some cousins) and then grocery shopping together. We got home around 7:00 and were so wiped out that we all ate dinner in the living room and watched the Huskies beat the Buffs. I may or may not have fallen asleep on the couch during the game.
Saturday morning brought the candle sale at Bath and Body Works. You guys, this picture cracks me up because they were obviously loving it as much as I was! Hahahaha!
Next, we ran some errands as a family and came home in time to take a little rest and get ready for our first round of Christmas. I made these appetizers. I know what this picture looks like, but trust me, they taste WAY better than my i-phone photography skills (or possibly anyone’s photo skills). Brandon’s aunt makes these. It is cocktail rye bread, toasted. And you top it with one pound of hamburger (drained), one pound of sausage (Jimmy Dean Original, drained) and one pound of velveeta.
We went and Christmased with my aunt and uncles and cousins on my Dad’s side of the family. It was a lot of fun. We had a Christmas trivia contest and I won $5 on a lotto ticket (my aunt handed them out as prizes for correct answers, I thought that was a really cute and fun idea).
On Sunday morning the kid’s decorated a gingerbread house all on their own.
I would say they nailed it.
I also watched The Holiday for the first time. Ever. What a great movie.
We watched the Seahawks win. WHOOP WHOOP!
And just like that, it is Monday morning. I hope you have a great day and a great start to your week. Thank you for stopping by today.
