O Tannanbaum

We got our first tree together! That was a fun experience. Kevin & I don't really know too much about buying a real Christmas tree, but his sister (who took us) is an expert. She scared the Canadian tree salesman. He was really nice. So we got him down from $45 to $35 and he gave us a free wreath because it was my birthday. He was a nice guy and told me he appreciated me saying please and thank-you cause not many people say it during the holidays. So Kevin and I decorated it yestaerday and I just loooove it!

I was so surprised!

My mom has been planning to come visit me the Monday after Christmas for a while now.On Tuesday, Kevin kept saying that his friend was coming over, then he'd have to go pick him up and then he had to go to work and he wasn't coming and blah blah blah. And for whatever reason, on Tuesday I just felt really sad, very lonely and just ick. I really didn't want Kevin to go to work, but we all know he has to. So he left and I'm being all sad on the couch - half sleeping. About 2 hours later he comes home and comes in, me surprised and very happy to see him so soon! I give him a big hug and kiss, and we go out to the living room to pick up a bit. Then I hear a knock on the door. I raised an eyebrow at Kevin and whispered for him to go answer the door, We weren't expecting anyone. "No, you're closer!" He said in a typical Kevin response. So I sigh and walk to the door and yell, "Who is it?"
"Open the door"
"Yeah, but who is it?!"
"I'm getting real tired of standing out here! Open the door!"
And that's when I recognized that voice. My mouth fell as I ran to the door. I fumbled and couldn't get the locks unlocked. I swung open the door.
My mommy came to visit me early for my birthday!!!! I had NO idea! I was completely shocked. Everyone knew except me. That was the best surprise ever! She'll be here till Sunday! I'm so happy my mommy is here.

Yay! It's December!! December is my very favorite month for a few very good reasons:

1. My birthday is this month! 12-20 baby!! I share my birthday with my new sister-in-law and my great-grandmother who is turning 97 this year! My birthday is very special because I'm pretty awesome.

2. It has cold weather. I'm a cold freak. I'm usually hot and never get cool enough. I make Kevin open the windows at night and I have them open all day. I love dressing up in cute hats and scarves and gloves an cute winter clothes. I love the cold. I'd rather wrap up in a blanket from being cold then strip to nothing cause I'm too hot. I used to want to live in Alaska for realz.

3. Hot apple cider. YUMMMM Since It's close to a bunch of seasons, it just feels right drinking warm apple cider in December. So far, I've made about 10 crock pots of hot apple cider. I am addicted. I add some cinnamon sticks, a few apple slices, a few orange slices and OMG, it is so good. In fact, I have a batch heating up right now.

4. Christmas. Duh! I love the decorations, the smells, the lights, the music, just everything about Christmas. Everyone usually seems in a better mood (usually). Cute, good movies come on TV all the time. Christmas baking is usually the best. I love Christmas cookies, and making them.

5. This December my mommy is coming to visit me for a week!!!! YAYYYY!!!!!!! I really do miss my family. I wish she was bringing my dad, sizzle, and the kids, but seeing my mom will be really cool. She can see how cute my apartment is and how clean I keep it! I really want to get her some take out from this Italian place me & Kevin love. I know she'll like their mozzerella sticks and they have the best marinara sauce. The Monday after Christmas! Yay!!!

So this is going to be a fun month. Oh yeah, and at the end of the month is New Years. What a fun month!!!!!!!

Thanksgiving was great! All the food was delicious. I had a great time. Kevin says I looked sad sometimes and I was a lil - this is the first Thanksgiving I've celebrated without my mom & dad and sizzle. Kinda sad. But I had a whole new family to share it with and that was cool.
Kevin called on Friday, inquiring about more delicious turkey. They ate it all! No more turkey!?!? So what did superwife do? I ran to the grocery store, picked up a turkey, stuffing fixings, & other odds & ends and I made our own turkey. Nope, I had never made one before. I watch food network ALL the time, so how hard could it be, right? Right... I made a 14 pound turkey that turned out moist and yummmmy. I made some of the best stuffing I've ever had, and I made homemade cranberry sauce. That week on the food network, I kept seeing this "Thanksgiving sandwich" and I've been dying to try one ever since. Luckily I made all the right things. I ate 3 of those yummy sandwiches. For those of you wondering, this is a "Thanksgiving sandwich":

1. 2 pieces of whatever bread
2. turkey
3. stuffing
4. cranberry sauce

pile all together one on top of the other, smush together and eat!

This was just as delicious as it looked. And now we have a whole turkey sitting in the fridge for our enjoyment. We do need some more pie, though. My apple pie turned out WONDERFUL. I make really good homemade pie crust, which surprises even me.

Stay tuned for turkey leftover recipes...hahahahahaha
