Oh, My.

Oh my, I am going to bust wide open.  WIDE OPEN!  We ate too much.

It was a wonderful Christmas with our new family member here as well.  All three sons, a daughter- in- law, Katie Isabella and me.  Everyone loved their presents and certainly so did I.  I got a pair of Iolite earrings from my oldest.  A wonderful DVD, some WWll things, I collect them.  I even have some ration coupons.  I got quite a few things and I am truly grateful.

But I wanted you to know what the oldest gifted me with.  He will still be here for several more weeks I would say.

I hope all of you had the best of days...I hope before things got hectic that you had a few quiet moments to yourselves just to reflect on the meaning of the day.

Oh, and we have NY Cheesecake and pumpkin pie for dessert.  And I was gifted with Lindor Truffles among other things.  O. MY. BELLY.

That bully flower is Bee Balm.  He sure is mean looking, ain't he?



 Here is a twisted tower of Krystal boxes WITH FLYING BUTTRESSES I might add!  My son from over the mountains constructed it at Krystal's yesterday.

  1. We had a nice day here too. The cats got presents and are busy enjoying them. My sister had Dad over for Christmas Eve Day and a special meal and the attention of a couple of his grandaughters. I received holiday email messages and opened all the Christmas Cards at once (an unusual way to celebrate, but it works for me).

  4. Sounds like a wonderful Christmas at your house. Now that is quite a tower your "over the mountain son" made. I was wondering just what that was supposed to be.

  10. That surely does sound like a wonderful day, Carole. Things were really nice here, too.

    Everything sounds like it was terrific for you, and it's so nice that your oldest son will be staying for a while longer. :)

    That Krystal tower made us laugh!

  12. I also had a bloody great Christmas, but I didn't eat too much and since I had to drive home from my parents place I didn't have a drop to drink (grog wise) I did have a couple of scotch and cokes once I got home though
