Kids and Christmas
Christmas and kids....
it just doesn't get any funner!!!
Letters to Santa
and playing Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
over, and over, and over.....
I always think that the best and
most fun Christmas's involve children.
It's been many years since I've
had a bunch of little kids around!
I have 7 nieces and nephews,
that are all grown now but,
I still remember those darling little kids
and opening presents on Christmas Eve!
They all grew up so fast!
What happened to those days when we could
con them into doing the dishes or foot rubs to open up presents??
Now they are all grown with babies of their own.
Hopefully, they will remember the fun we had
with them, and continue the foot rub tradition.
(Aunt Lisa may have to visit on Christmas Eve again!)
Now I'm a Grandma of 3 little ones and Christmas
is fun and exciting all over again!
(I'm just a little grayer and a little plumper)
This was our first grand-daughter, Domino, in 2007.
Her little sister, Zelda, and little cousin, Wyatt
will both be celebrating their 1st Christmas this year!!
Domino is 3 already,
and has been a rootin'-tootin' wild child right from the start!
This year she's all about Toy Story and
Grandpa and Grandma are prepared!
with our 3 grand children,
and the 4 little ones that I baby sit,
I had quite a shopping list this year!
And oh, was it fun, shopping for toys!!!
Today I got them all wrapped
then went to making that easy-peasy
puff corn that I was talking about in an earlier post....
The recipe is simple....
melt a tablespoon of oil with 2 bags of white chocolate chips
I crushed up 4 candy canes and mixed it in with the chips....
then dump mixture over 1 bag of puff corn in a LARGE bowl
and stir, stir, stir!!!!
Then lay it all out on wax paper to cool.
Here's the finished, sweet, addictive stuff....
Now would someone please come over and help
me eat it??
Merry Christmas and for goodness sake,
Have some fun and join us!!
