Merry Christmas Eve everyone! We are hanging out with mom and dad today, and doing a potluck and presents tonight. Puppies are four weeks old as of yesterday, and we had a busy busy day. All our last minute Christmas shopping is done, and Marcus is in the kitchen making spinach artichoke dip. I’m sitting next to my dad who is reading excerpts from the Bible, and waiting to start my twice baked potato casserole. I’ll post the recipe probably tomorrow since this is my first time making it. Another low day on the monitor, but all is good. So, the menu for tonight is as follows: Ham, twice baked potato casserole, green bean casserole, German potato salad, spinach artichoke dip, sparkling cider, and whatever else we can possibly come up with. Shatzie recognizes our voices and is getting super big. We’ve been getting Toby dog snuggles (by the way it’s his second Christmas with us) and Shatzie snuggles as well. We even get to open stockings in the morning. But for now, it’s get things prepped and finished for dinner tonight. I’ll fill you guys in more tomorrow when things have calmed down a bit. Merry Christmas!
