Merry Christmas

 Christmas is here. All of the decorating,
 the cooking and crafting,
 business that even the dog notices,
 the tree and it's packages
 all ready to celebrate. My computer sits ready for me to think of you. To remember friends seen and not seen, to reminisce on the changes that one year has made.
 We have both come a LONG way. The puppy is maturing and perhaps still growing a little. He will be two in April he is definitely a royal poodle.
 Ahhh to sit and just enjoy--it feels good to me too buddy so sweet.
 Such a face, I'm smitten with my pooda pony. He has so many colors in his coat. A blond muzzle, black and white ears, chocolate and black on the rest, his DNA just couldn't decide on one color so it splurged.  What he does have is size and stature. He is one well built dog.
 I always digress when it comes to the bear. Back to Christmas.
 I think that one of the projects after Christmas will be to put that painting back in the attic. Heather Lynn wants it.
 My soft wonderful couch, Merry Christmas to me from God above. I say that because finding this at the Goodwill was a miracle. Both end recline and the leather is very high quality with that soft touch.
It is enjoyed by all of us.  Look at this cuteness. Seriously cute cheeks on each one.
 Really it is all about this isn't it? Family
 and friends? We had a birthday party for the baby Jesus. The children loved it.
 My baby loved her bunny pajamas when she was a girl. I think her last one was when she was 12. She got a cheetah suit with soft feet in the bottom. She is short so it needs some altering but she loved it. We opened a few things on Christmas eve because mom knew that the present was new pajamas. It's 45 degrees and raining so the cozy sleeper is welcome.
 Boo boo got Eeyore pj's and her mom bought her this furry hat. We had fun.
 The grandson got some new bey blades his favorite toy. I bought him a camo bunny suit thinking it would be alright but it wasn't. He came out of his room in it and his sister said, "oh Ralphie". It was too small and he looked so silly. We said go ahead and take it off and the boy said, "Do I have to put it back on"?
At least it wasn't pink. I imagined a leg lamp with a fishnet stocking in my living room window. It would go well with the painting.
 Oblivious. What leg lamp?
Adorable. All the cooking was done today so tomorrow for Christmas day all we have to do is relax and enjoy. We are going to church and then I might just get back into my pajamas and cuddle up on the couch. I am so grateful for all these blessings and the health and strength to enjoy them all.

I wish YOU and your families a blessed Christmas and a toast with your favorite beverage to the New Year!

Honey--that couch is marvelous--what a blessing is right! We don't have a Goodwill in our town--it's about 40 minutes away, and I've never seen anything that nice there.
Your home is so beautiful, Karen, and your family looks so happy! Isn't it amazing--the blessings--the way things can change in a year or two? God is so good--I will always be thankful I've prayed for you and you have prayed for me. It's the best gift friends can give one another!

Happy New Year!
