Christmas turkey and a bench

Whew, can I say I'm glad it's over?  I had a sugar hangover all day yesterday and required a 2 hour nap to recover! Now I just need to talk my husband into taking down the tree while he's off for the next 2 days :)  His birthday is tomorrow, so I probably should just let him sit around and watch his Clint Eastwood movies. 

I cooked my first turkey, I guess I'm a big girl now :)  I was really worried about it being nasty, but I used this fool proof recipe called The Brown Bag Turkey and it was DELISH!
I hate touching raw meat!


Yummy!

Miss M got a new table and chairs for Christmas and LOVED it!  She sat at it and opened her gifts, she would tear into a gift, throw it to the floor and say 'more please'.   Argh, the way she's says 'pwease' is so darn cute!!


 A friend of my Dad's sent this awesome box of candy from the 60's, they don't make it like that anymore!

My sister having fun with the mustache.

Candy cigs

With all of her new toys I had to rearrange her room, which is impossible with her around.  She took everything out I put away and them climbed into the closet to sit in her old baby swing.


Now you know I had to fit in a little project, can't waste any time!  I had this old bench for like YEARS, in fact it sat in the box for 2 years before I even put it together.  I decided it didn't match any thing so I bought some cute fabric and recovered it.

I added this cute pillow my Mom got me for Christmas.

  5. Every time Cameron says "please" it is so cute I end up giving in and giving her whatever she wants. Fortunately that is usually just for me to pick her up. But she is getting heavy! You look fabulous, by the way...and the turkey looks good too!
