I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know for some it is hard but I hope you had good thoughts and smiles.
We had a good Christmas here even though we are small in number these days.
Mom has Alzheimer's and was more interested in the bags of candy but she enjoyed herself.
Aspen’s gift was not wrapped but it did not take him long to get that new Bear out of the bag, and to find the squeaker either. We have our Christmas on Christmas Eve every year and always go out and have pizza for some strange reason. Then come back and have a gift exchange. I cook dinner on Christmas day then but Mom wants to stay home so I send out a plate. We wonder how long it will be now before I have to move in with her and stay because she is failing fast now it seems. I am so thankful that my daughter lives right beside of her and has nursing training.
We left town after having our pizza and got home to find out that a tornado had touch down near where we had been but no one was injured so God is good.
We have had a mild winter so far but they are saying this coming week will be very cold and some snow is coming with the colder temps. I have enjoyed the mild temperatures. It was 58 degrees this morning with rain when I got up, but the temperature has been falling during the day. I am not going to complain after last winter.
As for New Year’s …. this girl slept right through it. What can I say, some evenings I cannot keep my eyes open. This gal is getting old. LOL!
After taking down the Christmas decorations it always looks so bleak around the house and on the front porch so I like to decorate just for winter every year.
I get out the snowmen and stick them around everywhere inside the house and outside too.
My latest acquisition is this 5 foot tall wood snowman that I picked up at a local Traders Day this Fall. He is so happy and doesn’t he just make you smile.
I picked up some white pine boughs at a clearance sale at JoAnne's after Christmas and put them in a crock and added some blue branches and a blue lighted bow. There are also lighted blue and white branches in the crock so it looks lovely at night.
