Popcorn, stockings, and parties OH MY!

We have a new tradition in our house. Or more like a new obsession. Popcorn. The kids LOVE it and ask for it every night. I know, I know, total choking hazard, but we watch them very closely. So we pop some corn a few times a week, and I get to vacuum twice as much. But it's totally worth it.



Troy and Brooklyn, like a lot of kids, enjoy wearing the Christmas stockings on their feet. Troy learned fast that there isn't any traction on the bottom of them though. Poor guy.


Erik's work Christmas party/get plowed in front of your bosses was this past Saturday. It's always fun to get really dressed up and hit the town. And to watch everyone make fools of themselves from drinking too much. But we ate good food, played some "gambling" games (they have play gambling tables), and enjoyed a much needed date-night. Our good friend Stephanie watched the kids for us. Our day was pretty packed that day, so needless to say my house/kitchen was a DISASTER! I was so embarrassed. But coming home was a great surprise! Stephanie had cleaned the whole thing!! She always goes above and beyond. I am so lucky to have such a great friend!!! Another great friend of mine, Toni, helped me take in the skirt I'm wearing too. It was harder than we thought it would be! Thanks again guys!
