Christmas is nearly here and I couldn't be more excited. For the first time in years I know without a doubt that we will be enjoying a white Christmas. The best part about the holidays this year is that Cody and I have two days off together. We never get time off together so I am extremely excited for our time. We are planning a trip to Eaglecrest Ski Area and a trip to a local shelter to help distribute meals on Christmas Day.
In the meantime, I am enjoying my kiddos at work and all of their wonderful projects and plans that they have been doing to honor the holidays. They have been thoroughly covering the school in glitter, beads, ribbons, and tissue paper. We are celebrating with a Holiday Pajama Party tomorrow. Everyone will come in the pajamas and we will eat sweet treats and enjoy watching The Polar Express (a personal favorite!)

In housing news, our oven is broken. The broiler and stovetop work great! But, the oven won't heat. So, while we wait patiently for the repair man to fix up our source of cooking-goodness. We are stuck improvising and making some very random dishes. Here is a picture of our stovetop veggie wraps and rice with peas. It was a pretty tasty improvisation.
