Christmas Eve and following days

I am gonna catch up someday on this blog.  Maybe...Anywho.  We were in St. Louis for actual Christmas day, so we found some ways to have fun together celebrating the birth of our Savior.  We started out Christmas Eve up in St. Charles where they were having all kinds of Christmas story characters walking along the streets and talking to the children.  Characters like Tiny Tim and Father Christmas.  There were lots of characters dressed up and there were carolers too.  There was one group of carolers that were roasting chestnuts.  It was a fun morning.  We piddled around there and watched the parade then headed home. 

That night we got invited to the family's house that I nanny for.  We enjoyed hanging out with them and eating some yummy Chili mac. 
Christmas morning started off with Michael and I waiting for SK to finally wake up and open presents.  She was so excited she got a new doll stroller.  It was pretty cute.  We opened presents then enjoyed our traditional breakfast casserole and OJ.  We headed to church then all came home and napped.  We ended the night with a steak dinner :)  We decided since it would just be us we would do a little different Christmas dinner.  We had steaks and potatoes and it was yummy.  We made cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday, Jesus.  SK loves helping with the baking :)  esp. taking care of the clean up of the spoons and whisks.

Two days after Christmas, we got our first real snow.  It wasn't much, maybe 2 inches that melted by the afternoon time.  SK quickly got all dressed in her snow gear as soon as she saw the snow.  She and Michael had a fun time playing while I stayed inside and watched from the window with Molly (my nanny baby).

That might catch us up on the blog.  Woohoo!  I hope to share pictures soon of some projects I have been working on.  It has been nice to have my hubby around more since he has a break from school.  He has been very sweet to help out with some projects.  Next week he is off to class again.  I guess I better enjoy it while it lasts!
