I'll post more about the James Center later this week. It's one of my favorite Christmas traditions....I think the older kids are sorta over it but since I take hot cocoa and cookies they are willing to go along. As for the mishaps....#1 Mark got a nail in his tire. Not sure when it happened but he had to fix it Saturday...can't have a bus full of Bryants and a bum wheel! #2 After cooking breakfast someone (yea that would be me) left the burner on and then laid a pot holder on it. I thought I smelled smoke at some point but figured I was just imagining things...then I saw smoke. Thanks to Tommy for saving the day! And that picture of Emma....she was helping me....but I didn't know it. I was cleaning the fridge and when I wasn't looking that stinker would grab stuff out of the door of the fridge and then run to her room. After a while I noticed there wasn't anything left in my door! I went to inspect and found her in her room with all her ill-gotten-booty! That girl!
I did try a couple new recipes this weekend and happy to report they turned out wonderful...Mark, the girls and even Tommy all agreed they were all worthy of repeat performances (Tommy doubles as a food critic from time to time).
So that's the weekend all wrapped up in a neat little package. Hope yours was a great one as well....Off to master my Monday :)
