Well Christmas has come and gone and we will put away all the decorations, but the memories of all the fun and family time will live forever. Watching the little ones always brings joy to the heart. The food that put cracks in diets is always delicious and really in abundance. Makes for great leftovers.
Though we gave mostly gift certificates as most wished for, everyone was happy with them. The kids all draw names (family is a bit too large for buying for everyone) the kids did have present to unwrap. Oreo was spoiled with a number of toys and treats. We were given some great gift cards. My kindle is reloaded. Jack got chocolate turtles he loves and I, my favor chocolate covered cherries. The kids all chipped in and got us a gift card for The Fireside Dinner Theater. They put on some marvelous shows throughout the year and we can pick the one we would like to see. We have always wanted to go there, but for some reason just never made it. Now it's just pick the show and go. As it is in another town a bit farther from here, I think we will pick a spring or summer show so we won't have to travel on winter roads. My kids made me tell them where I save the card as I've been known to forget where I put one. Sheesh! Has nothing to do with 'old timers' either. I just tend to put something away, and out of site, out of mind.
I pray you all had a good Christmas.
Wishing you all have a Happy New Year.
