We had a nice day yesterday for our anniversary. Quiet. Far Guy took to baking his Christmas Caramel Rolls…I went into the kitchen several times to do dishes and help out when needed. He is very particular about his caramel…it has to be done just right and by golly it better turn out okay…not sugary and not hard as a board. He stirs and stirs until it is just perfect. Not sure about all his dashes of this and that but it seems to work for him. He made two pans of caramel rolls.
We got a few new ornaments this year.
This is the ornament from the cookie exchange. Daughter Jen purchased it…everyone brings an ornament and it is unwrapped and then we commence the tossing of the dice for doubles. If you roll doubles you get to swap for a different ornament if you want to swap…if not you can keep what you have. Someone sets a timer for an undisclosed amount of time. Fun. I am certain that Jen chose this ornament because of it’s “Hawaii colors”…if she ever runs away from home…I think I know where to look.
Hopefully the grands will devour some of the cookies…if not the people at woodcarving seem to like cookies and never complain when I bring them. I have 12 dozen cookies in the freezer….uffda. One of the gals makes Almond Bread…you have not lived until you have tasted that!
This beautiful ornament arrived in the mail. It is from our friend Sue in Indiana. She said it would remind us of her Joe and yes it does!
My parents took us out for supper last night, to our favorite place in the boonies…steak and salad…our favorite foods! We visited with a few of our neighbors…always fun when a number of people remember your anniversary. Marge called early in the morning…she is Far Guy’s God Mother and she never forgets our anniversary or his birthday. My other baby brother came by with a card and a big hug. It was a good day.
