Merry Christmas!


Let us all remember in the midst of chaos and traditions, there is a higher meaning in this season.  This Christmas which for some of us is very different this year, but it is the same yesterday, today and forever.

"'8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.'"
"...And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."


Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Fun Food Friday 12/14/12

So something came to my attention on Friday.  I have not been in the best of mindsets electronically.   I have my bad days and my good days.  Yesterday I made huge progress.  I didn't run screaming from the building when there was a baby in the room.  About 1 month after Addison passed, I ran from the library because someone had a newborn in there.  It was almost involuntary.  So, what came to my attention on Friday?  I didn't realize how many people still look forward to my FFF posts until Friday night I had a couple of different people call to see what we did for FFF.  I will be getting back to my blogging more frequently very soon.  Still trying to figure out how I'm moving through my grief.  What I know is that God is carrying me through, He keeps me standing on two feet and is teaching me what this whole process was for.  So, FFF, our main dish was absolutely heavenly and I'll probably put it in my personal cookbook that I'm compiling.  It was Pesto Chicken Mac 'n Cheese.  Basically it is adult mac and cheese.  What I want to know is, do you guys prefer me to post the recipe or not.  Let me know.  Our dessert was Egg Nog Pound cake  oh my, definitely one you will want to try for Christmas.  Super good.   Our movie was 101 Dalmatians.  The princess begged for a dog movie.  It's definitely been a challenge setting up the air mattresses for FFF with the Christmas tree set up, but we had a blast.  Hope you enjoyed and that you'll join me with your own FFF.  All for now.
