Merry Christmas to All!

Now for the missing husband update.

I finally heard from Sean around 5:30 p.m. He did in fact lose his phone while out. He claims he sent me text messages through the computer earlier in the day, but I never received them. I admit I was still a bit angry when I talked to him. It'd been almost 24 hours since we had any contact, which unless he's in the field is honestly something that doesn't happen. I didn't originally share this on my blog, but I think part of the reason I was so upset yesterday is because I felt like there was a big double standard when it comes to keeping in contact. He expects me to check in from time to time when I'm out with friends, so I didn't think that him not doing that was really fair.

Anyway...thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I really do appreciate it.

Last night my mom wanted me to help her with a few new candy recipes she had. We made peanut butter fudge and cinnamon candy.....but with disatrous results. Come to find out our candy thermometer wasn't working correctly and so the candy didn't get hot enough. So...the fudge and the cinnamon are quite soft and pretty much unedible. It was fun making them though.

Tonight is Christmas Eve!

Which with my family means tonight is our "snack night" and watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!

I'm so excited, I love all the tasty treats that we make and of course I love the movie choice.

Do you guys have any special Christmas Eve traditions you'd like to share?

Merry Christmas Everyone!

In the past my family has always had a candle-lit spaghetti dinner. It's quiet and nobody really talks, we just listen to Christmas music. I remember how peaceful it always was.
However, for the past few years I've gone to Matt's family's Christmas Eve get-together. Half of his family are redneck hicks so it's always quite amusing :)
