I flew to Kansas on December 11th to spend a week with my parents. This was very unusual for me- to visit my parents alone. We all had wanted to come for Christmas, but right now we don't have a vehicle that can hold all of us, so I decided (after I won some money in October) that I was going to come for a visit alone.
It was a wonderful week. We had such a great time, really doing nothing out of the ordinary. I was able to spend time with both my parents and my sister and her family without having to be concerned with my children. I'm pretty sure that has never happened for such an extended length of time since I had children, almost 23 years ago.
My mother found this recipe from the Pioneer Woman, so one night we made these cracker/bacon appetizers.
It was a wonderful week. I hated to see it end.
