We try very hard to spend as much time with our kids as possible. We are not those parents that try to get rid of their kids at every opportunity. Of course, we like date night as much as the next guy. But we try to spend time with them to let them know that they are loved, and the world can be a great place. So here's what we did tonight.
We had some left over prime rib that hubby's dad cooked yesterday for Christmas dinner. We sliced it thin, put it on some hoagie rolls, topped it with cheese, and popped it in the oven. Hubby and I added sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms to ours. And it was fantastic. After I was done I read the last Christmas story to them that we have. And then we decorated ginger bread men.
I had to stop at the grocery store this afternoon after the park and they had kits for 50% off. They only had four men in them, so hubby and I had to share. Which that actually was ok for me because hubby doesn't like ginger bread. Here are the pictures. Hubby did mine, and the kids did their own. And we had a blast. Then hubby beat us all at tennis on the Wii that we got for Christmas. He had some great competition, though. He didn't walk all over us like he did last night.
And the TV didn't get turned on until now. That is so nice.
Have a great day!
