Absolutely Nothing Day!

Tired Nana...oh my!  We had a wonderful Christmas with lots of family and friends, presents and meals, laughter and smiles.  Late Saturday morning our company departed, and I headed to the stores for after Christmas specials.  My daughter and I only managed a few stores.  She is pregnant and I am just old =] Later that day I baked a birthday cake and celebrated a good friend's 50th birthday!

Let's see my week started out with the arrival of my son on Tuesday afternoon accompanied by a friend he brought home to spend the holidays with us.  We had a family birthday dinner for Josh that night, prime rib and all the trimmings.  P.T. and family joined us.   The next day on Christmas Eve we went to church, and watched a lovely Christmas pageant.  After church we went back to our place for a sit down meal for 12, serving lasagna and birthday cake. Before our meal we read Barbara's post The Glory of the Unlikely (see previous post) after dinner we tried to play Mad Gab, but my son in law out did us all  :]  After opening presents starting at 9:00 am on Christmas morning with our family and of coarse Puddin Toes as our star player, we had 10 for Christmas Brunch...Eggs Benedict, cinnamon pull apart biscuits, and fruit salad as the main head liners.  I had a wonderful Christmas present as my son's guest quietly did all the dishes and cleaned up my kitchen.   Nick you were such a blessing to me you will never know how much!!! 

On Friday evening we had another family meal this time at a restaurant followed by a late night watching my son's band Lions & Eagles perform at a local pub till one in the morning...and that takes us right up to Saturday morning.  So you know what we did on Sunday...absolutely nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phew!!!  I am looking forward to a few more days of rest. My darling husband has the week off and we are going to just hang out, go out to dinner, go to shows and just relax....I hope =/

My husband bought me a beautiful new lap top for Christmas and this is my virgin blog using this nifty new machine.  We never did get my old lap top completely fixed after wiping the hard drive it still wouldn't connect to the Internet.  I do hope to get if fixed eventually. 

Just one more bit of news...we did have a very snowy, and beautiful white Christmas...but starting Sat. night our local southwest wind start up, something we call a Chinook (old Indian name) and the snow is almost completely gone...50 degrees today!  That was absolutely wonderful timing

So here for your viewing pleasure are a few of our holiday moments ...

Wonderful photos! I can see that Puddin' Toes steals hearts left and right. She is such an adorable little girl.

Your week sounds crazy busy...hope that you get the rest and relaxation that you surely must need.

The angel in the kitchen sounds like such a delight. I hope that that is a ministry that he'll continue.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
