Merry Christmas!!!!

Merry Christmas, everybody!!!

Yesterday, we celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ. Normally, our family has a big turkey dinner, but this year, we decided to change it up a bit.

Our family is scattered this year, so the plan was....
Christmas Eve menu was:
and root beer floats

Christmas Day, we had my mom and dad, our two youngest children, my husband and me. I decided to have a Cajun Christmas dinner. The menu?
jalapeno cornbread
king cake
Today (Dec 26), is our daughter's 24th bday. She and her husband are both vegans, so I decided to have a vegan dinner. The menu is as follows:
Tri Colored Orzo (minus the feta)
homemade bread
apple salad
sweet potato fries
green salad
cookies and vegan ice cream

Tomorrow, we will celebrate Christmas, since all of us will be here. My son and his wife come in sometime this evening. Our menu will be:
mashed potatoes and gravy
baked sweet potatoes
apple salad
vegan dressing
macaroni and cheese
vegan cheese ball and crackers
apple crisp pie
cherry pie

Even though our family is a bit scattered all of us were able to meet and be together at the end. 

Well, I better get up from here and get some stuff done before the last of the crew gets in. I'm sure the first thing everyone is going to want to do is open presents, then eat.

No One Yet...

We have had our house on the market for about a week. People keep asking if we've had anyone come look.
No one has even called
To be honest, I really did not expect anyone right now. We had Thanksgiving, and now a major storm in our area. Most people were busy with family or out of town, and then Black Friday, and now ice and snow.
No, there won't be anyone looking right now...but maybe soon...

BRRRR....The Ice is Knocking on Our Door!

Yesterday, it was 75 and nice. I wore my capris and a tshirt. When I got up this morning at 5:45, it was 68! It was also rainy, which means a front is moving in....and it is going to be a COLD one!!!

See all that pink? That is coming our way. Pink means frozen. From what I understand freezing rain, sleet and maybe some snow are coming to visit Madisonville. eeeeYUCK!!!
Glad I got my 72 hr emergency kit ready. They say we could loose some power. Last time I was in a situation like this, we lived in Indiana and were without power for F-I-V-E days. I am getting prepared. Maybe it won't be so bad, and I did all this prep work for nothing...or...maybe it will be bad, and I'll be prepared.
 The Red Cross talks about emergency kits, and how they can help out in times like these. I also picked up this bag from Thirty One gifts. It's perfect to store all your emergency preparedness stuff.  It's called the Super Organizing Utility Tote, and you can check it out on my website....mythirtyone.com/terryjeanettecarter

Well, I best go finish my laundry, and cleaning my house. Want to make sure I have everything clean, just in case we do loose power.
