A wonderful weekend!

The weather has been wonderful.  Danielle came bouncing in the door in a tank top and pj pants exclaiming how she loved a green Christmas.  I think her exact words were "This is the best Christmas ever."  I'm thinking she's not fond of snow and ice.  LOL  Well neither am I, but it just didn't seem right all that 40+ degree weather and no snow.  But hey, I can live with it.  :-)

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve with the family.  More food that we could all eat, a few drinks ;-).  Really!  Well maybe a couple people had an extra one or two, but really, no one really went overboard.  Everyone was happy with their gifts and the euchre game was a success.  We never got over to Sherry's I'm sad to say.  We didn't really get to the gifts before 5 and with all the fun and visiting suddenly the time was gone.  

I got a nice cover for my kindle and gift card for it along with a gift card for Kohl's (love that store) and one for the Crackle Barrel. That made Nicole's face light up. She just loves that place so I'm thinking that look was a prayer that Grandma will take her when she goes.  Grandma probably will.  I can't look at the card without seeing that look, lol.

Cousin Mary and Jim had wonderful visits with their kids at Zion as Jim can't come home yet.  He has been in and out of the hospital, but on a good note, he was allowed to be with Mary this weekend.  That is a good sign. 

To top it all off, the Packers won again. 

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend and your all resting up.

May the coming New Year 
Bring you good luck, good health
And happiness knocking at your door.
