Merry New Year

It took me three hours but I'm done. Christmas has been put away and the house is back to normal. Now some may call me Scrooge for getting tired of the trees and decorations; but in our home they have been up now for 34 days and I say that is plenty of time. I did have to do this on my own as Mike is working a 24 hr shift today and the girls are playing with friends. But to have the peace of mind that my home is again in order is well worth it. The only thing left to do is for Mike to put away his 27 nutcrackers. Yes - 27 of them. I don't touch them; if they happen to break I don't want to be responsible. So there ya go. Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy Holidays from the Rogers

Christmas 2008

Christmas Vacation

The girls were off for the Christmas holiday on Friday so we decided to put together this little gingerbread house.

New Addition to the Rogers Home

This is our 3 month old Yorkie. Her name is Lacie and she is a whopping 2 pounds.

Stringing up the lights........

We got our two trees up on Friday and Saturday. I ended up having to go get three more strands of lights because I got ticked off trying to find what bulb was out (even with a tester) and it was worth the $2 just to buy another strand. We have our regular tree. And we have our Disney tree that has all our disney ornaments we collect every year. I'm sure glad this is just once a year!

Rogers Thanksgiving

Mike's parents came for the holiday but his dad went on down to southern MO. So we spent the majority of the time with Grandma. We were originally planning on 11 people at our home for dinner, but because of unforseen circumstances it was just the 5 of us.  

We did a turkey with a recipie from the Food Network, mashed potatoes/gravy, garlic green beans, turkey stuffing, hickory pit bbq beans from Jack Stack (yummy!), rolls,a veggie tray, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, a pumpkin roll and the great carbonated grape juice that our girls call the "burping drink" because well..... it makes you burp!
