God Jul may translate to "Merry Christmas", but every time I see it it reminds me of Good July.
It's Christmas Eve and we just ate our dinner. We decided to do our turkey dinner tomorrow if I can just remember what Grandma taught me. I may be calling her at 3am to ask her questions. I did call and ask her some things yesterday. She will have her own 30 pound turkey to cook this Christmas! I will definitely be sad to miss that!
Our tree looks like Santa has already come and the kids are obviously very excited. Scotty isn't thrilled with the idea of Santa coming at night and leaving more presents. He says we have too many already... which is true. I'm slightly appalled at how many gifts are under that tree already... I guess there are six of us. Six people equal a lot of gifts! This is when big families get fun though. :)
Oh, I tried to make stockings for all six of us so we can finally get all matching ones. HA No way. I'll wait until I get into a Target and buy some really cute ones for $5.00 each. The one we did finish making will be for Andrea. :) She doesn't mind what it looks like. I'll use the rest of the fabric for a table cloth of something. :) It's a soft squishy material that doesn't like to hold still to be sewn.
So we already ate our dinner and we're waiting to eat dessert... Chocolate Pudding that we made for the Nisses that apparently live in our attic. :) With any luck the Nisses will leave us a present too! That is if they like our American box of chocolate pudding mix... It's got to be better than rice pudding!
Sierra has carefully selected nine carrots for the reindeer and some of our sugar cookies for Santa. Just in case Santa is tired of cookies we made him some brownies too... with our last box of American Brownie mix. SO YUMMY.
Okay, I'm off... maybe I'll sneak away from the chaos tomorrow and put some pictures up of our day. Whoever reads this should call and wish us Merry Christmas, it's just a local call remember! Go skype Go!
