This last week was so busy. I have deadlines approaching at work. Basically if I don't get this work done I ruin the program for everyone. No pressure or anything. Just a slight left eye tick and working full time all week.
With that all my other Christmas and wifely duties have taken a back seat and our house was a wreck, we've been eating junk for dinner all week and all the presents still had to be wrapped. Oh and that annual Christmas cookie baking that Jessica used to take charge of. Guess we should do that too.
So Christmas Eve eve Melissa and I went off to the store for cookie supplies and Christmas Eve we made some cookies. Which, I still have not taken to the neighbors the day after Christmas but at least we made some together for a little cookie making bonding. Trevor even got into the kitchen for a little bit to help cut some out of the rolled sugar cookies.
We had to stop before we were done though because we had plans to go to Scott's parents house at 4. Scott had went and picked up some pizzas from Papa Murphy's. We've started doing pizza the last few years so that his mom doesn't have to do any work (which she can't do now anyways). It's nice and easy and we all like pizza don't we?
We also took cookies and a peanut butter pie.
I didn't really take any pictures at his parents house. I don't think I blogged about it, but his dad fell at the post office right before Thanksgiving. He tripped on a rug and went down. He's been in the hospital 3 times since then. He broke his pelvic bones and tail bone area, his arm and dislocated his finger. THEN his body decided to have gall bladder problems. Poor guy. He turned 86 in the hospital on December 8th.
So anyhow, he's walking with a walker but not without someone walking behind him to make sure he doesn't fall. His mom is also so frail now. She will be 85 in March.
I snuck this picture of Scott cooking pizzas. He was so good cooking them all. It was nice to just sit and hang out. His sister Barbara, who is a Godsend mostly stays there with his parents and helps take care of them. We had a nice time visiting with them all.
After pizza and some dessert his mom climbed into her bed she has set up in the living room and was out like a light and his dad made his way back to his bedroom so it was time to go.
When we got home I wrapped up all the presents and got them under the tree. Amazingly that one roll of wrapping paper I bought wrapped all the presents! That was kind of fun.
Including one for each of the pups :)
Our stockings minus Jessica's :(
I went to bed and cried myself to sleep missing my girl. Do you ever get over that? Hopefully next year she can spend Christmas with us.
