How We Celebrate…

Christmas is celebrated with my “Little Family” on Christmas Eve k21000760at my son and daughter-in-law’s home…

We share gifts u11607740with the Grand-kids… have a wonderful dinner mainly prepared by Melanie…

 (I was asked to make a niece’s BEST macaroni/cheese)... They know how to put the pressure on me!…

No one makes it like Carol!… but, I will try my best!… k13270027

We play a game or two… (I usually come up with something)…

We are to wear ugly sweaters k8014957 … I choose ugly/funny T-shirts for Bobby and myself…

These were last years… I’m still thinking on the new ones I picked up at the Thrift Store…

Sweaters are WAY TOO HOT for me!…

Of course the kids opening their gifts from all of us is the best part!… k22474553

I had a little trouble with shopping k20871573 for them this year… Oh, if they were small again!…

I have an 11-year-old Grandson… He wasn’t as bad!…

A 12-year-old “Pre-Teen”... most difficult one!… and usually my easy one!…

An almost 20-year-old... I know she probably would prefer gift cards /money...but, that’s not MY WAY!…

maybe one gift card… but, I love giving presents!… so we will see if my choices hit their mark!…

The adults draw names going on three years now… and that seems to work out just fine!…

We even put a few hints with our names to help with gift buying…

We are so blessed to have each other!…

but, we do have a slight sadness…

My daughter-in-law’s Daddy 1509067_10201246233379624_100685276_n has contracted cancer… I hate that word!…

but, for the moment is making it OK… and we will enjoy our Christmas this year with all of us!…

We will laugh… smile… hug…tear up…and be so thankful!… for all we see before our eyes…

Grateful k2882099for this year ending… We’ve had a few sad happenings… and looking toward 2015… k22297748

A New Year is like walking into the unknown…

We will take each day as it comes…

We really have no choice…

but, we do have the choice of how we react to the happenings…

Keep Your God close by… k20767102

Lean on Him in times of heartache…

Lean on Him in times of sadness…

and remember to lift up Praise to Him in times of Happiness!…

Merry Christmas Fellow Readers and Writers…

You have been an intricate part of my life for many years now…

God Bless!

  1. A beautiful post. I loved looking at the photos. I will say prayers for your family member. You are right. We have no idea what 2015 holds so we must walk in faith. I love your ugly sweaters! They are so cute!
