Obviously Ashley was less than thrilled to have a camera out so early in the morning:)
Tyler and Kendra both THRILLED with their new DS's for the long bus rides and days in the gym
Ashley was so excited about the Christmas gift she made us in her welding class that she made us open it a couple weeks early. I can see why. It's gorgeous!
I had planned on doing a ham for Christmas dinner but Bob decided we should do prime rib. Now, I'm not a very good cook and I'm also very thrifty (thrifty just sounds so much better than 'cheap) so I have never done prime rib before. My opinion has always been that a prime rib was waaaaay too much money to pay for a piece of meat I would end up ruining anyway.
As luck would have it, as I was in the grocery store looking for a prime rib I happened to run into Nate denHoed who's a great cook and he gave me instructions as to how to prepare it. It was amazing. We are looking forward to having an excuse to make it again! And it was very simple. Poured a bottle of port wine on it and packed it in coarse salt. mmmmmm.....my mouth is watering just thinking about it again!
The snow started falling about mid morning. It really was a picture perfect Christmas day.
