Christmas Day is done and I still find tinsil in my teeth.

I really don't have any tinsil, but I just feel like the mess is lingering! The kids came up to me yesterday (the day after Christmas) and said "we don't have anything to do". I laughed myself silly, only the day before they had recieved gobs and gobs of new "things to do". I just told them to stretch their creative muscles and they did survive.

Will, who hasn't had a great immune system since his bought with salmonella last January, started spiking a fever last night and I just can't figure it out. He doesn't have anything else wrong, just the fever, but he just sits there lethargic on the couch, with swollen eyes and bright red ears. Poor guy!

I wanted to add some pictures that I had on the computer from last week when Morgan played Santa for the Bagdad Community Campus, it was really cute. Will screamed instead of sitting on his lap and Sarah said to me later "Santa was Daddy, huh?" I asked her why she thought that and she said, "He wore the wrong shoes!". He! He! I am also including a picture of a little girl who was REALLY scarred by the sight of Santa Morgan. Fun stuff!!

new journal idea

I have decided to turn my blog into a journal of sorts. I am going to try to post how each day went along with pictures and at the end of the year, I will make it into a book and then, wallaaa! my journal will be complete.
To start off with, tonight is Christmas Eve and we had a wonderful dinner. We had Karen and Thor Anderson over for dinner and they were a riot! We really loved hosting and put out our best china and everything. The menu included: smoked ham, candied hams, homemade rolls, two different kinds of salads, and homemade Christmas candy and cookie bars. It was all topped off with some sparkling apple cider and it was marvelous!!! Morgan can smoke a mean ham, and so you can imagine how delicouso that was!!!!
But, I think I am getting ahead of myself because today actually started out with Morgan making silver dollar pancakes, fun stuff!! And then we cleaned the whole house do to the fact that Santa is coming tonight and we want to make room for "stuff" that he might bring!!!! He!!! Plus, it is always good to hit the kids up for cleaning projects when "Santa is watching"!!!
We also read the Christmas story tonight before bed and now we are just waiting for all of the kids to fall asleep so Santa can make his grand entrance. Cassidy, of course, is the only one still awake. She just keeps having "Christmas attacks" and can't seem to sleep. It may be a long night for all of us.
The only drawback to today is that I am struggling with a sore throat, loss of voice thing..

Patience, patience, patience

Hello all! This is Christa and I have noooooooooooo idea what I am doing with this blog thing, but my little sister, Becky, helped me set this site up and so I am going to give this thing a whirl. Please bear with me. We went and saw Santa tonight and I am going to try to scan in the pictures to this new wonderful website.
