I can’t believe that it is already Christmas week.

While it’s been kind of a long year, it does seem to have gone really fast.

My husband and kids and I are heading to my parents today, so we celebrated our Christmas at home yesterday. I definitely struck out on my Christmas dinner. It was just not that great. I’ve done better and am a little disappointed in myself.

Aside from that we had a good time. One of the gifts to our kids was a Nintendo Switch. If I’m being entirely honest though, it was partially a gift for me too. It was a big hit and we played many rounds of Mario Kart. This brought me right back to Jr. High and all of the Mario Kart contests on my friend’s Nintendo 64. The only problem is that my husband keeps winning. I’m going to have to put in some time to remedy that.

We also got the game Throw Throw Burrito. I thought it was really fun. My kids were a little too hyped up about throwing foam burritos at each other to focus on playing well, but I still recommend it.

Now onto your flakes.
