The recap~

Christmas Eve~
Lobster, steak, antipasto, bacon wrapped asparagus and Claudia’s potatoes au gratin. (awesome!)
 The kids made a mess of the living room. 
 I had a trio hug with Lindsay and my MIL
 Cocoa waited for a long time….but did not receive any steak. She did get a lot of hugs though. 
Christmas Day~
Lolo got a shark hoodie, which really looks more like cookie monster. 
Ozzie did not get a hoodie;  he doesn’t even know what a hoodie is. He’d love some steak though. 
 Linds got a longboard. (college transportation)
 The girls got weird/cute/weird/cute fuzzy sweaters.
Seriously, they are so weird they are cute. 
 Cocoa does not approve of the long board. 
 Cocoa REALLY does not approve of the longboard. 
All in all…our Christmas was more than we could have asked for. 
We are a lucky group of people. 
After all this goodness…we then celebrated Lindsay’s 18th bday. 

It’s a tough job living the dream….but I’m up for it!

And then she had the nerve to turn 18.

Did you have a fantastic Christmas? 
I can’t really hear you, but I’m hoping you answered YES!
Anyhoo’s today I’m here to talk about someone growing up.
This little button {Lindsay} turns 18 today.
She has been looking forward to this day for so long. 
Actually, she’s been looking forward to it for 18 years.
What is so great about turning 18?

Linds: You can buy LOTTERY TICKETS!!!!
Honestly, we don’t usually buy lottery tickets….she must get the gambling habit from my Mother….who knew the gambling gene skipped a generation?
Also? She can now work more than FOUR hours without taking a mandated break. 
The rules of hostessing go out the window when you are 18!

One thing people always say about Linds is: 
She is so pretty…so bubbly… cute…and funny!

And she is.
But she also has a another side.

I’ve tried to not share this with the public, but our little Lindsay has a much darker, much scarier side.
She might even lead a gang…
 And that type of gang would be a comedic, shopping, dancing, hostessing gang. 
Hide your credit cards…she’s a good shopper…and please, please don’t ask her if your group is the next to be seated. SHE will seat you when SHE is ready to SEAT YOU!
How can one so pretty make such faces?
She keeps me laughing all the time….and that is just fabulous!
No one ever died from laughing.
or did they……
I know, I know. She is something special.
That specialness is SO darn deep, I can hardly stand it. 
Happy 18 to our Lindsburger!
Do you remember your 18th birthday? 

Do you like to make funny faces for the camera as well….or is that only for 18 year olds?
