Home for the holidays!

Happy Friday before Christmas!  Are you ready?  Have you gotten everything done?

I’m one of those people who gets everything done and then when I have a bit of time to relax, I start second guessing all of the gifts I bought.  Did I buy enough?  Did I get something they really want?  Should I go get something else?  Should I exchange so and so’s for another person?  It’s maddening!

nervous breakdownThis year I’m trying to pull off perfection because after a  long almost 14 months, THE KID IS COMING HOME!  That’s right, at 12:22AM he’ll be landing at the airport and I’ll be there to pick him up.

He’s pretty important at his job so they’re only letting him off on Christmas Day which means that he has to fly back that afternoon but no matter, I get three days with him and I’m so excited.

When I spoke to him earlier in the week I told him that I had gotten together with friends and baked cookies and he asked if I made the peanut butter bon bons.  I said no and I could tell he was disappointed.

My Mamaw used to make the peanut butter bon bons every year at Christmas and she gave me the recipe when the kid was little.  When he was five we started making them together and it became a tradition.  He wasn’t able to come home last year so I didn’t make them.  Guess what I’m doing today?

Bon BonsWhy, I’m surprising the kid of course!  Shhhh, don’t tell.

Tell me about one tradition that you do with your family every year?
