As always, we had a wonderful Christmas here at Casa Tuescher. We always do Xmas eve at Kurt's parents and have yummy appetizers and open gifts. I think we managed to surprise Grandma and Grandpa with Nooks =) Kurt and I both worked on Xmas eve, but he got home before me, pulled everything out and sorted so it was not much work for me when I got home. The little boys got Kindles and lots of legos, Parker got lots of golf items and Arielle was happy with Uggs, a Coach purse and her Pandora bracelet. Then its off to my parents for more food and gifts!! Santa did not forget Kurt and I, he got many things off of his wish list and I added 4 charms to my Pandora bracelet and got a piece of luggage that I wanted----which really will benefit Kurt, its smaller so he won't hurt himself lifting it when I go on girl's weekends, LOL
Love my little boys (who are 7 and 9, they don't always appreciate my use of the word "little") dressed in matching outfits. I have to enjoy it while I can, they are close to out-growning this stage. These were taken on Xmas eve, right before the opening of gifts commenced.
Last night was our annual visit to see Santa at the Fire Department--we've been going since Paxton was only a few months old!! This year Beckett was really prepared--he brought his list on a yellow legal pad! Paxton always has his memorized: LEGOS! The kids always get a stocking filled with treats (up until this year there were always peanuts, but no more, and I totally understand why) and new this year was a little wrapped gift as well. Paxton got a lego fire kit (how fitting, right?) and Beckett picked a board game. There's always goodies and punch too. Usually Daddy lets them explore the trucks downstairs for a while, but he had to get back to work last night, so he owes them a trip =)
My lazy week is over! Back at cooking for my family =)

Welcome to my blog! In our home there is my wonderful husband, we were married on New Years Eve a "few" years ago and it's been pure bliss since then! Arielle is the oldest--she's set to graduate from College this Spring!! Parker is the oldest of the boys--golf is his interest, so much so that he's playing for his College team. Next is Paxton, our sweet 9 year old who LOVES his trains & legos! Finally there is Beckett, the 7 year old goofball!
That leaves me, Colleen, author of this blog. I work full time in dentistry as a CDA/COA and just hit the 20 year mark at my job. I also attend nursing school at nights and on weekends--halfway there!! I enjoy decorating our home, hunting down a bargain, reading, stamping, crocheting and following my kids' interests!
