The Christmas season has been lovely at our house.
On the 22nd of December, we celebrated an early Christmas with grandson Ben and his mom and dad. They drove over from the western part of the state and spent two nights with us and our small family before returning home to celebrate with Ben’s dad’s large extended family. Even though Ben was feeling under the weather with a respiratory virus, we all had a wonderful time together.
He likes his Christmas hats!
On Christmas Day, my 90-year-old father and my sister joined my husband and me again for Christmas dinner.
Yesterday, the 28th of December was my birthday, and my sweet husband (who can no longer see to dial a telephone or order online) had our daughter order me a beautiful bouquet of flowers from him. They certainly brightened up a day that was filled with pelting rain, flash flood warnings, and actual flood warnings. We were fine, but the underground springs in the woods opened up again, and we have a small, shallow creek running down the middle of our one-lane road.
Tomorrow is our 41st wedding anniversary which we will celebrate quietly here at home. My dad and sister are bringing lunch to us which will be lovely. It actually is my birthday lunch, but we’ll combine celebrations.
And, of course, next Monday and Tuesday are New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Here’s hoping the new year brings us all good health, good times, and good fellowship!
