I'm Officially a Grown up

Although I don't have pictures as proof, or maybe a few mediocre ones at that, I proved this Christmas season that I'm a grown up. With the help of my sister, we put on a fabulous Christmas Eve dinner, cooking the whole thing ourselves, which turned out to be a good half day project. Have to say that things turned out well and Yosh has been referring to this meal as my "coming out dinner." Not quite sure what it means. The connotations kind of scare me a bit, but I think he means well!

Here is the spread that is significantly less flattering due to my very unprofessional photography skills. But it was a spread and it was delicious!

This was the first year I was truly Santa's helper and I think that definitely projects you into adulthood. Putting toys together, stuffing stockings, and being not so sneaky since the boys are only 2 and 3 (we were able to leave empty toy boxes in our room and not be found out that we helped Santa!) was our Christmas Eve. Then Christmas day was spent putting even more toys together. The life of a parent you know. And did I mention I had to be woken up on Christmas morning? Yes, I'm an adult. It was a good day, loved it!
