Well, it's finally setting in that we'll be stranded in Omaha for Christmas. Earlier in the week I though it might be fun to be stranded, just the five of us, in our HOUSE (ugh, I can't imagine being stranded in our apartment!) for a few days.
But now that it's actually happening, I realize this is SO not how Christmas is supposed to be. We have family from Colorado, Ohio, and Honduras all home for Christmas, and unable to see them. :(
So, while we wait for the weather to clear up (and hopefully still leave on Sat) we have a few things planned:
*making Christmas goodies. really easy, simple, not cute versions, but still....
*ME making the entire Christmas dinner. this should be interesting. :)
*edible nativities for Christmas eve
*sugar cone Christmas trees for Christmas day
*lots of memory, since Santa will be bringing a princess AND a spiderman version. :)
*catch up on laundry I guess? :)
*enjoy these days of strandedness, with 3 healthy children, a roof over our heads, and a savior that was born for us.
suddenly I can't find much to complain about....
