    We had a lovely Christmas too!

    Christmas Eve our daughter and dnl and grandson came for supper. Our son works for UPS, so you can imagine that he had to work! He finally got there around 11:30 pm so he missed most of the evening. They all stayed the night and were there for Santa Christmas morning. Having a nearly one year old baby in the house made it lots more fun this year!

    I collect Fiestaware (brightly colored dinnerware for those who don't know), so I got the cannisters and the new color place setting. Also a new pair of black jeans, a scarf, necklace and bath & body stuff.

    I fixed a breakfast casserole and we then went to my sister's house for Christmas day dinner. My mom had planned to have it at her apartment but she became overwelmed and felt sick so it was moved to my sister's house just a few blocks away. We also had a gift exchange and my mom got me a new robe and pj's and slippers. We did manage to get her to come over for that. We have been suspecting depression and called the doctor today and they gave her a prescription so hopefully she will feel better soon.

    Brooke - I hope your mom feels better. I know the holidays can be overwhelming for older people. I worked late Wednesday night and on the way home, I got to thinking of all the wonderful Christmases we had when my parents were alive and before you know it, I am crying and I continued to cry all the way home. I think it was a combination of being tired and missing my parents. My mom loved Christmas decorations and baking and always made it such a special time in our home.

    So did my Mom, HB. Christmas was very special to us as well and I really miss my Mom a lot this time of year, especially since she passed just a couple of weeks before Christmas day (hard to believe it's been 5 years ago).

    Brooke I hope your Mom is doing okay.

    And I hope all of my fellow Borderers and my favorite band all had a wonderful Christmas. I had hoped to get a chance to post this on Christmas, but it was not to be. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are really busy for my family, but it's all worth it.

    A belated Merry Christmas and a Very happy healthy New Year!
    Had a wonderful holiday with family. Played lots of games, ate great food and laughted alot. So hard at times my belly hurt. Now that's fun.
    Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful time! Missed my mom greatly but know her pain is over and she is looking down on me and my family smiling. Was a little sad this evening and looked down to find a brand new shiny penny face side up! I knew Mom was looking down on me and saying don't be sad for me.
    Blessings to all.

    Merry Christmas everyone!. Hope that everyone has a great one!

    I'll probably be around. I don't have any family get togethers. I don't think that my uncle is planning anything, so Christmas will pretty much just be another day.
