before we get TOO far into the new year (i’m working on slaying the procrastination dragon over here for 2015) here’s a re-cappy-cap of the Egwuatu’s Christmas 2014.
after my early morning workout, i spent Christmas Eve cooking cornbread dressing to take to my Granny’s house & baking sweets galore with Chiso.
we used one of my favorite brands to bake with, Immaculate Baking Co.! their sugar cookie mix is gluten-free, contains no bleached flour, no artificial ingredients, flavors, preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and it’s trans fat-free, I get their products from Sprouts Farmers Market.
my mom says i wanted to do EVERYTHING myself and Chiso is the same way. i’m impressed by his independence and do my best to let him take the reins. i’m such a kitchen hog!
we were both pooped by the end of the night, no kidding. that was alotta dang work, whew. 😉
Happy Birthday, Jesus!!!! Christmas morning.
my little miracle elves.
Chiso wanted a spaceship and boy did Sonny find one: a Star Wars X-wing ship almost as big as him.
fit gifts are ALWAYS at the top of my list! can’t get enough.
i got hubs a few things to match his Infrared J’s.
The Egwuatu Boys.
hi-yaaaaah! we got a ninja from our good friend Diamond.
Uncle Bri Bri and Dego at my MIL’s house.
my MIL with the ‘freshest’ additions to our family lol. my sis-in-law had another baby girl in November! #cousins
and the highlight of my holiday was my older brother and his beard coming home from working in Afghanistan for more than 8 months straight on Christmas Day. Sonny tried his best to keep it a secret but i KNEW my brother would be home! he surprised my parents by popping up at their house first and hid there until i walked right into his trap. best surprise ever.
thanks for reading! now i can get on with my year, haha!!!
