Beautiful Christmas

The sun is shining and the doors and windows are open. I kinda wish it was cold here so we could have a fire in the fireplace. We did our Christmas yesterday on Christmas Eve since Jimmy is working the Cardinals game today. BOO! So I am here all alone watching movies. Matt is supposed to get here but until then, I'm flying solo! Here's some pics to highlight yesterday's events. Ava and Callin made out like bandits. Ava LOVED opening the gifts and was just so adorable! Callin got a bike from Grannaran and Ava got the cutest table and chairs that she just loved. We are excited for NEXT Christmas when Norm, Florence, Marissa, Alex, Phil and babies will be her e in AZ!

To Tamale or Not to Tamale....

Greetings! It is December 4th and I don't want to even blink because December will be over before I know it! There's a lot going on and every year I ask myself, "Am I going to make Tamales this year?" I think the answer is yes. I didn't do it last year because I was sick so I guess that means that this year it's on!!! I just need helpers. I am thinking the week before Christmas I will do it but I really don't want to do it by myself. I am gonna have to recruit some helpers! Are you making tamales this year???
