Christmas Eve 2012

Gee Whiz, we have been running the roads since Friday, and I'm about pooped out. We have been eating and enjoying the visits with all the kids. We were in Dry Creek on Friday for a nice visit and meal. Saturday we went to Alexandria for another nice visit and party with the relatives there. Sunday we were in Baton Rouge for more eats and visiting. Somebody like me isn't going to be happy when the doctor puts me on the scales next week. And now we have the big day tomorrow. Oh well it's Christmas.

I'm sure glad the girls are all good cooks and I don't have to do too much in the kitchen any more. It was fun then, but its better now that I'm not responsible for all the food. Still have to get my hands messed up once in a while though, I still like to put things together, and I still get requests for dishes that are usually tradition on our Christmas table. But I like to sit back and watch this year.

I went out in my back yard this morning and cut some beautiful red berries off a bush and put then on my dining table and they look so fresh and pretty. That the good thing about living in the country, the natural growing bushes produce such beautiful things. We live in the pine forest so we have all kinds of natural decorations.

I'm looking forward tomorrow when the family comes for dinner. It's always a joy to watch the little ones play.

Merry Christmas everyone. May God Bless.
