Christmas Eve & Morning
We took a plethora of pictures. Notice I used a high school level word, aren't you impressed? When I saw the picture of me at the table of food I decided to take charge of the camera. No satsuma wrestler got me beat. I need a new song, I like Dories songs, "keep on swimming," and how about "they'll be no eating here tonight your on a diet?" Tigger and I need to get ourselves on "The Biggest Loser." We are competitive enough maybe that would motivate us. How about that fruitcake? I make fruitcake people like to eat!
On to nicer topics. Do you see the photo of the linens? I hope you can make it out. My lovely favorite Auntie sent a beautiful satin slip case with embroidered needlework handkerchiefs that my Grandmother made and her mother collected. she also gave each lady of the house a special pin. Papa got some hankies too, a real hankie affair. Tigger pulled off the big surprise on me. When I had the jewelry party she played sneaky and took some upstairs to Papa to buy. That completely surprised me I did not expect that. The girls loved their presents and their stockings, it wasn't a large amount of gifts but everyone liked their little happies and we really had one of the best Christmas celebrations ever.
Today we received news that one of our friends is expecting a baby. I also got a call from an old friend who promised to start blogging. Last but not least the countdown is on for New Years Eve at Debbie's house and I can't even believe my blessed fortune for that!! It is my hope that all of you are celebrating and basking in the love and joy of your families and friends. Merry Christmas and happy new year!
