I hope you feel better too. The grandbabies will make you feel good, I'm sure. Merry Chrismas, girlfriend. Remember, I can't get better until you do.

Fed Ex showed up with the last of the gifts about an hr ago. Phew!! Have them wrapped and ready to take to son's house tomorrow. Steve and I made the cheesy potatoes to take, and also the broccoli salad. I found a pretty gold leaf plate charger at the store, and arranged the five kinds of "No Brainer Perfect Fudge". The grocery was a zoo........ big surprise. We played "Rat Pack" Christmas music, and shared memories of Christmas past, with tamale's made by the neighbor. A nice(couple of)bottles of wine has rounded out the evening. May as well be honest.
Hope you both feel better, Z and Babe.
Many blessings to all...........

My kid brother (the best) got here after a driving 4 hrs it usually takes 50 mins, I cooked beef stew and yorkshire puds, my wife made creme brulee.
My wife is a long way from her family so it is bitter sweet for her, we lit a big fire and talked and talked. He brought more joy than any presents and this morning we will go as a family to see my Mum, we all enjoy spending time with the other residents some who have no family left

We've got a little local tradition going where we go out to dinner for my friend's father's Christmas Eve birthday dinner. Tonight we celebrated his 89th. There aren't many restaurants open in our small town on Christmas Eve, and we enjoyd our dinner and had a lovely time.

We ate at our best friends' today. Ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, dressing, rolls, and pumpkin pie. We will be over there most of the day tomorrow as well, and we will munch all day on leftovers from today.

Oh Christmas Eve dinner is so special and sooo exciting. I had chicken stew, cos it was very cold and is really simple to make. Santa had a mince pie and some sherry and Rudolf,of course, a carrot!
