Merry Christmas 2011

Yesterday at 6:30ish am, I headed to Walmart to pick up a few groceries...stopped at Mickey D's and picked up breakfast muffins and I was home by 8:15 am.  We ate and then went and visited a couple of friends, then I made my dish for Christmas Eve - made the burger/rotel/velveeta slow cooker dish - yum! 

We all met at the clubhouse for caroling at 6:00, ate wonderful finger foods at 7, and then about 8 ish we had a round robin gift exchange...oh yea!  We scored a tin of 3 kinds of popcorn an LED candle and a box of wonderful chocolates! 

This morning we greeted each other with 'Merry Christmas, love you' and just relaxed in front of the computers with our coffee.  I called Nancy in PA to tell her Merry Christmas and after we hung up I just cried, because I so badly wanted to call Mom & Dad and tell them the same thing.  David just held me while I cried - I love that about him :)

We got ready and went over to the clubhouse for dinner at 2 pm.  They served ham, scalloped potatoes, peas with pearl onions, coleslaw, pineapple chutney,  and desserts.  It was all very good! 

Somehow or other I got 'volunteered' to make cornbread for the New Year's Eve, on the 31st I will be elbow deep in cornbread fixin's...Someone will make black eyed peas, so that will be that!  Looking forward to it!

Now it's time for a nap...and then go play card bingo at 6:30...

To all my friends, family and followers - I wish you a Merry Christmas!

  1. How well I know what you are going through. SO many times the thought crosses my mind to call Mom - then I remember. She's been gone but 6 months now. Dad died 7 years ago on Christmas. Miss him too.

    Sounds like otherwise you had a satisfying day. Lots of good goodies I am sure.

    We will be in Texas but not in your areas. It won't be until March and then in the Austin area.

    Keep in touch!
