Merry Christmas





Merry Christmas





I have not been on the computer lately, been a little busy. I love Christmas time and this year I have enjoyed a couple extra gifts. I had my precious grand daughter for a few days, then traded her for the grandson. We have been making cookies, candies and stuff.



I have been doing last minute Christmas shopping with and for family. My mom just can not get out and shop like she used to so I have so enjoyed going to do it for her or with her. I have never had that opportunity since I lived nearly 2 hours away. Before I just ran home on Christmas day with the kids and then we would run back home and try to enjoy the holidays best we could.I have always hated all the rush of the holidays and it is still there, but not as bad.



My girls this year will be very happy at Christmas. They are receiving gifts that I hope will make them very happy. The sad thing about that is the word "things". I know
things should not make us happy, but I have tried very hard this year to find just the right thing for each of them.


And the guys, well, lets just say there is always next year!

I have done a really good job at not spoiling the grand children with gifts. I think the best gift is time with grandma and that is a year long gift, no a life long gift! The gift that keeps on giving! So Merry Christmas Caleb and Allie!

And to my friends that I have made this year....



A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH OF YOU!

Here is hoping you have time with your family,
time with your friends,
and time for yourself.



Here is hoping that no matter where you are
that you are healthy,
safe,
and warm.

Here is hoping that you know you are loved,
you are very special to so many,
and needed.


Merry Christmas my dear Blogging Friends
Aren't we all so lucky, and so very blessed.



Merry Christmas!

Grandma, We hope you know that we love spend as much time as possible with you too!! You are the best grandma we could ever have. And as far as spoiling goes you are the best at that too, not just with presents, but when we come over and then go home Mommy always says we are spoiled rotten when we get home!! Guess it's cause we have so much fun playing! Merry Christmas and see you soon!! Love Always

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas too, my dear new friend.

I think its ok to be happy with "things" especially when they have been chosen personally by someone you love.

Enjoy being with the family Lisa, nothing is as awesome as that!!
