Merry Christmas to All....

....and to all a Good Night!!!!!






















Although we had a wonderful Christmas celebrating with family, we did miss those family members that couldn't be here.  We had lots of goodies and lots and lots of food to eat.  Thanks to Sharon who baked us a tender and very good country ham, Sandie for her macaroni salad and broccoli cornbread and Linda for her delicious cherry dessert.  Linda transported her dessert for over 100 miles on ice, because it was made with whipped cream, yum yum.   I did a lot of cooking and baking myself, but my potato soup was a disaster and we threw it out just as soon as everyone went home....never, EVER substitute whipped butter for stick butter!  The end result is disastrous and NOT GOOD AT ALL. 

Also, Jimmy wants to thank Shane for fixing his bikini girl and making sure that she was properly clad for our 60 degree weather today.  Jimmy's indoor/outdoor thermometers are now working fine....Thank You Shane.

Today we got to really do some visiting and story telling.  Ron told of my many kitchen disasters and why I'm not normally allowed in the kitchen.  Linda, Ray, Ron and Jimmy talked horses and the rest of us talked about our babies and how smart, good and cute they are.  Little Kyra ran around here with a paper which she had divided into two columns, a good list and a bad list.  As she was making her rounds she stopped to inform me that I was on the good list and that's quite an honor because I saw a few names on the bad list, lol.  Three year old Noah knows sign language and this week he surprised Laura when she asked him if he knew how to spell CAT and he signed it back at her, then she asked him if he could spell STOP and he did.  They went on with other words and Noah would spell them back to her by using sign language so she turned on her cell phone and began videoing.  No one knew that he could spell that well.  We heard lots of Noah stories, too numerous to mention here, but I hope that Peanut and Laura are writing them all down because some are so funny that they would make a great book.  Little Miss Lilly walked around here like a little princess with her baby doll talking to everyone and just being her little cute self.  We only saw flashes of Dylan as he ran in and out of the house.  We had a nice clear sunny 60 degree day today.

We had two new babies here for Christmas this year, Myles and Carson.  Myles is about 4 months old and Carson is 5 weeks old, and both are good and very sweet babies.  

I could go on with all the stories that were exchanged and shared today but it's getting late and well after midnight so I must say, Good Night.  I think we all had a very good time, and we even got an added bonus of talking to Jerry and David in Nevada today.  Hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!

Got your Christmas card Rachel, Thank You. I hope that you and Phil had a Merry Christmas, as well and here's wishing you a very happy New Year! Hope to see you soon, Love you.

Somershade, Thank you so much for your nice loving comment. I also try not to take anything for granted because life is just too short. We need to focus and be thankful for the things we have, and not the things we wish to have. I love my whole family and my favorite holiday is Christmas and that's why I try to make it as special as I can for all of you.

Dennis, I Love you too and hope that you had a Merry Christmas and that your New Year will be one of the best years of your life.
And if I don't get pictures posted as soon as I can, the grandchildren start asking where they are, hahaha. Gotta keep them happy:)
