Christmas Recap

Warning: Picture heavy post ahead. First let me say that at our last stop on the Christmas trail I fell. As a result I won't be doing much typing because my left hand is pretty much a mess.

Our first stop was at Mom & Dad's to celebrate Christmas Eve with my side of the family. A good friend of the family came by and helped them deck the halls so every thing look especially beautiful. Thank you Eunie!!!!!

Every year we alternate spending the night Christmas Eve with one of the children. This year we were at Aaron & Angie's. The Christmas magic was felt in a big way there as those of you have been readers of Life At Home for a long time can imagine.

The weather was icey and rainy so after breakfast at A & A's we headed over to our friends to do a quick gift exchange then got on the road to come back south as early as we could.

Our last stop was at my brother and sister in-law's for a polish feast with John's side of the family.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. My hand is throbbing now so I will sign off.

  5. Hi Sue

    Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing your heart and your life with all of us. It has been great to know you.

    Happy New Year!

  6. Sue,
    Yes, as a long time reader of Life At Home I vividly recall several months ago the sadness and pain your family endured...a miracle happened indeed...I know also how we were bowed in sorrow for our friend, Ronald, and how hopeless everything looked for him...a miracle happened for him also. Although he walks with a walker, he is alive and doing well. Two years ago the 7th of January he went in for surgery and about 10 months later was able to finally come home...God is so good.

    Blessings to you...Betty
