Happy Sunday & Happy almost New Year!!
I'm excited to tell you all that after spending two days working on my little broken down laptop,
( it was literally make it or break it)
I wiped out everything and reset it back to its factory settings,
then downloaded a new web browser (firefox) ...
It now works amazing!!
Hello Blogging world ~ Leslie is back in business!!!
How are you?
Did everyone have a nice Christmas?
Christmas in the Spoonful house was as laid back as they come.
It was really nice.
Paul and I woke up before the kids, watched White Christmas while having coffee and reminiscing those Christmas mornings when our girls were little.
We skipped Christmas breakfast and enjoyed a delicious lunch of Cream of Shrimp soup and baked bread ~
this will definitely be a new tradition.
Dinner was easy..
and for the first time in many years, it was grab your plate and sit where ever you want.
Although, I prefer for us all to sit together around the table, it was a nice change that everyone else seemed to enjoy.
We listened to Sally and Nick jam on their guitars, Played a few games, ate a bunch of sweets and shared many laughs.
There was no pressure this year,
No extravagant gift giving,
No rules or routines,
It was beautiful!
I know that I have posted to recipe many times before..
but it is soooo worth repeating
