I was supposed to blog on Saturday, but I took the weekend off. I didn’t mean to take it off from blogging. I really didn’t, but not going to the computer had that effect. I feel really silly now, but hope you all will forgive me and if my message gets bumped by another blogger…well that’s okay too.
We had an awewome weekened anyway…wish you all could have been at some of the parties we went to. Friday night, my sister hosted a caroling party and a few dozen of us tramped her neighborhood serenading her neighbors with Christmas carols. Saturday was the annual family reunion on my dad’s side…four generations of family show up to share our joy in Christmas together. We ate, we sang and little ones opened gifts. The family has been meeting every Saturday before Christmas for over 50 years and I’ve been going since my birth 37 years ago. It’s an awesome heritage for my children. Yesterday we spent Christmas shopping and then having dinner with my mom (it’s a weekly event for us as she’s been ill for quite some time) and that was lovely, even though it meant driving both ways on sheets of ice.
Today, I’m catching up on email and then I’m going to supervise Christmas cards and gift wrapping. I say supervise because the teens do most of the work to save my wrist joints.
What are your last minute Christmas preparations?
Hugs to all,
