Christmas Disaster!!!!!!

Well, we had a really good morning and then disaster struck. We wanted to get the kids something other than toys this year and since (I the mean one in the family who is supposedly the pet hater) we don't keep animals very long Phil and I thought a hamster would be the perfect little pet for the boys and for me.....the one who's going to take care of it. Well, we were all running around getting things ready and I checked on her right before we started opening presents. She was running around and having fun. We had hidden her in our closet since Saturday evening. We finished opening presents and the guys were off downstairs to start the frying of the turkey. I remembered....we forgot the coolest present of all...So Phil and Allen come up and I get the video camera ready and we let the boys open a hamster ball and a teeter totter for the critter. We go in the bedroom for them to find her and all that they find is a DEAD hamster!!!! We felt like the worst parents in the world. The poor little thing was sick and we didn't know it til the boys found her....needless to wasn't a pretty site. Jonny was totally heart broken and took all day to get over it.....Davy didn't really care. Anways, a new tradition of disasters in the McBroom household. Well, love you all and have a great day.

Merry Christmas Eve!!

Merry Christmas to you, we are doing great. We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Pioneer's home and have never had so many residents come to one of our services. I think Phil told me there were 23!! Very exciting. It is so refreshing to go to church and think about how wonderful our Saviour is and all he has done for us. I am so thankful for the Word of God and my salvation. It's just so nice to hear about that instead of all the commercialism. We are going to Mom and Dad's tonight for a Christmas Party with the family. I am sure it will be a ton of fun. I just wish Heather and Caleb and Bek, Jeremy , and Susannah could be here. Maybe some year we can do that. We will be down there in three weeks from today. That is going to be sooo much fun. Well, we are busy making crab dip with fresh Alaska King Crab and I am trying to get my candy platters together. Well, I have to go.....screaming baby. Love you all...Sprout

Home Again...for the Holidays!!

Well, I had a wonderful time in Ninilchik. I missed Phil terribly and don't know what I would do without him. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep while there but slept really good last night. I am busy wrapping presents and making Christmas candy. I'm not making all the stuff I usually make but just some Peanut Clusters and Bon Bons. I am sure Josh will be mad that I didn't make pretzels. We're trying a few new things this year just for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I can't not make Crab dip. Then Josh would be REALLY mad. Well, I have to get going and get everything put away and figure out what I have to work with for dinner until I can go shopping. Love you all and so glad to be home. Sprout
