Yesterday was going great...we were baking sugar cookies and had planned to make Christmas plate deliveries to all the neighbors after supper. Then I burned my hand really badly on crock pot steam. I sat with my thumb in cold water for 5 hours because it hurt so bad if I had it out of the water. Today I have a giant blister and scald marks but the pain is gone. We all have colds now though. Tis the season.
Today we enjoyed opening our gifts with the girls. The floor was covered in ripped open wrapping paper. Then my folks came over to open gifts and enjoy a delicious breakfast casserole. Oh, it was so good. Now we're playing the new Wii that Santa left for the girls...and we're heading back to my folks for a wonderful Christmas dinner with the family.
I'd like everyone to take time to think of those who are missing from our celebrations this year. We have had way too many tragedies in our community this year and my heart goes out to everyone who has to celebrate this first Christmas without their loved ones. I also think of our dear Jeff who we miss always but especially on the holidays.
I am so thankful for all of my friends and family....and for you, my blogging friends. Your warm comments and stories that you share with me make my blogging so much fun. We'll continue our friendship into the New Year as we create more goodies together. Merry Christmas everyone. Stay safe and warm and embrace your families with warmth and tenderness this holiday season.
