 A very Merry Christmas from our family to the internet world. We celebrated our Christmas today Dec 24. My husband is German, and it's become our tradition to carry on. We decided that since I have to work on the real Christmas day and won't be making a traditional turkey, we'd go for the German themed meal. Schnitzel and mashed potatoes and bacon topped stuffing! It was soooooooo yummy.  Okay, so the only German thing is the Schnitzel lol, but it was darn good.
After work tomorrow, we have been invited for a wonderful traditional turkey Christmas feast at a neighbors house, so we won't miss out on a good ol stuff your face feast, where afterwards we will all be in a turkey coma! It's so great to know that I won't have to do any cooking, just come home from work and dig in and enjoy!
We had a really great frugal Christmas this year too. Although we spent money on the kid, we did not spend money on each other. ( me and the hubster ) We decided that this Christmas we would only get each other things we found at the share shed. Well what a blast we had, and opening them was even funner. Just knowing that your spouse had to be innovative and be a good junk picker was so freakin funny. We both had no idea what the other one would come up with or find, cause it's always a shot in the dark with finding good things at the share shed. Well, we both did great and had sooooooooo much fun. I'll take a share shed Christmas any day over a "over priced, over spent, go in debt" one.
Happy Holidays everyone!

    We had the same for Christmas dinner - venison snitzel. Great minds think alike, lol.

    Hope you are having a great holiday with your family!
