I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas! I sure did! It amazes me how quickly it comes and goes. I spent Christmas Eve at my friend Diva's home. Diva's mother passed away this past year, and Diva has decided to carry on her mother's tradition of Christmas Even Open House. Diva and her husband, Bassmaster, are exceptional host. I went to the open house with my friend High Mae, and her twin boys. It was fun.
I came home to find two of my good friends had left goodies on Christmas Eve. My friend T-Ray gave me a scarf and a CD of Christmas tunes. Zinnia had made homemade sweet potato casserole. YUMmmmmm. I also received some very special gifts from Boss, High Mae, and Mama Joy. Really, when I say that I am blessed with the most thoughtful friends, I am serious. All of my friends continually go above and beyond to share their love. Though I am always appreciative of their thoughtful gifts to me, it is their friendships are the true gifts to me.
On Christmas Day, after the anticipation of waking up early to see what Santa brought, we headed to my parents house (they live a few minutes away). They hosted a Christmas lunch for 36 people. It was nice....and got a bit crazy with a hassle of children, as you can imagine. But, it was successful, considering that there were no "Jerry Springer" moments. My family spent the next two days recouping from the togetherness that was Christmas.
On Sunday I headed to my friend Judy's store, Sisters Two, where she is currently having a major sale. Major. I got some great buys...and even two boxes of freebies that she gave to friends. Sweet! The actual sale begins on Monday January 29th at 10 AM. For directions, check out the Sisters Two web site.
I am looking forward to checking out and catching up on every one's blogs to see how your Christmas celebrations went. I will see you at your place!
