Well...Christmas is over..and I am lagging behind.
Let me try and get you caught up!
After all my whining and complaining about this flocking tree, my son said one night,
"Momma, I think that is the prettiest tree we have ever had."
...can I tell ya, Santa was really great to him!
I plugged those lights in from the minute I woke up,
and they stayed on till I went to bed.
Now ... on to the PARTIES!
WoW, Can I tell you I had the "BEST CHRISTMAS" ever.
Every year I get sick at Christmas
(no, like really sick...IBS, nervous stomach, can't stay out the bathroom kinda sick, even to the point of having
to go get IV fluids.)
Well this year, I stood my ground and chose not to attend a few parties that always stressed me out and
WAAA LAA ...
I think I found the answer to my Holiday IBS!
I felt GREAT this holiday season...
Sometimes a girls gotta just say,
"I am not attending a party where I really do not feel welcomed by some of the guest!"
I really felt bad for my husband, but after 26 years of being together for these parties, he put on his big boy drawers and went on to the parties by himself! LOL
On to the fun stuff...We did have a little party at my house. Susie and her family came by for some potato soup and a few Christmas laughs...
Kaylee, Susie's daughter made us these super cute cookies.
Madison, Susie's other daughter
made this colorful cookie cake.
YUMHeck at this rate I won't have to make the sweets anymore...
This is a picture of our kiddies and
their boyfriends/ girlfriend...
In every picture one of them was doing something to mess up the photos..
Fixed that, just told them all to make a silly face!
From all the girls in the Melissa / Susie family
