Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful and loving day filled with surprises, wishes fulfilled and the joy of loved ones surrounding you. We had our family Christmas on the 23rd to fit into everyone's work schedule and other planned activities and it was so nice.  My youngest son hosted this year and cooked his very first turkey dinner.  He did a fabulous job! His girlfriend assisted once she was done with work but he'd taken the day off and had things well under control.  He brined his turkey using a recipe from Alton Brown and I have to say it was one tasty bird.  My grandson is 2 1/2 and is of an age to now understand what is going on and oh goodness he had us all laughing and smiling from ear to ear watching his absolute glee at all the new toys and playing with friends.  He was so excited he was shaking and about to burst with joy.  Such fun! Christmas they say is for children but watching children brings out the child in all of us.
I'd also like to wish Jesus a Happy Birthday and thank Him for being my Savior.  A precious gift God gave us with His birth.

  1. Sounds like you ahd a nice Christmas. We had 17 here on Christmas Eve and it never fails to amaze me to look around the room and see the big kids and the little ones.
    Been working on embroidering a pillow top today, making a meat loaf for dinner. Richard just took a couple of the Grand kids bowling. He has a few days off this week.
    Cold here, not much snow, which is very strange.
