Christmas With The Mayer's

We survived! I think anyone who has children knows what I am talking about. It was mass chaos around here Christmas morning. Aunt Betsy came over around 6:30am and the Diva was downstairs shortly after that. The boys walked into the living room and stood in the middle of the floor for a minute and then ran towards their Santa gifts. The Diva had already torn through her stocking and was itching to open the gifts under the tree. It was killing her to wait for her brother's. We brought all the gifts into the living room. Diva immediately started tearing paper. She was so cute. She would tear part of the paper off of each gift and get really excited about it and move on to the next one without fully unwrapping anything. I helped the boys unwrap their gifts. Of course they were more enamored with the paper and boxes rather than what was in the boxes. It was a very exciting. After the excitement wore off and all the gifts were open we were left with a sea of paper and boxes in the living room.
Mike and I have a Christmas tradition. We start the morning off with Mimosa's. We then proceed to drink Mimosa's most of the day. We stuck to tradition this year :-)
We made Turkey and all the sides for lunch and ate ourselves into a stupor.
It was a good day.

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs.
Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven.
Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine! She came over today to make some pasta. While she…

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
