muffin tin monday: oh, christmas tree

Today is Muffin Tin Monday. One of my nappers is recovering from a stomach bug, so I had to keep it simple today:
Muffin Tin Monday
noodle soup, a Christmas tree shaped sandwich, and pickles to go along with their sandwich.

Today is also my 29th birthday.  My husband surprised me with a flower delivery at lunch time.
Birthday Flowers

He also made some of his yummy jalapeno poppers before he left for work (at 5 am) and left them in the oven for me to bake. He also picked up the latest version of Jane Eyre for my sisters and I to watch. Jennifer (my sister) and I have already seen it, but my sister Jasmine has not. Jasmine, if you remember, was on a mission trip in Peru. She was supposed to come back in January. Well... at least that's what she told us, but she surprised us all by coming back on Saturday. She knew the whole time that she would be back then, but had us all believing she would be back after Christmas. We are all so surprised and so happy that she is here before Christmas.  We are about to watch Jane Eyre and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream. We will all have dinner together tonight. We are supposed to go out for dinner, but since my napper is still recovering we might bring it back here.

Be sure to check out Michelle's post here for her Muffin Tin Monday meal, and the submissions of other participants.
