Two Days til 2013

and we could not have spent this one any more pleasantly.  We went to brunch at Tuela's Trailside Cafe ,one of our very favorite restaurants in town.  No mem card in the camera so you'll have to take my word for good.  Then it was on to the Farmer's Market in town for produce.  A stop at Publix for some chili fixings and home.  Next stop was the preserve behind our house.  The ranger has given us permission to wood gather as long as we do not use a power problem, sir.

E took off to watch some football with his pals and I played a bit around the house.  Once he got home, we built a fire in the fire pit and threw in a couple of the color cones he gifted me with for Christmas...ah, lovely.

Add a nice glass of wine and it was bliss.  Chili is bubbling away on the stove, good movie on the tube and you can color me one happy gal.  Hope your Sunday has been a delight.

Christmas Day at Nana and Papa's

The kids brought the Grands over in the morning when we opened stocking and a few presents that Santa left at our house under the tree.  That Santa, he sure does get around.  After the Grands' naps, they headed back over for our family dinner and more play time with the toys.  While the men cleaned up after dinner, Kristen and I took the wee ones for a walk around the neighborhood to look at lights.  Each year with the Grands is the best and each year get better and better!

and one of the best Christmas gifts was the phone call Rob got on the morning of the 27th. saying that, after 5 mo. of unemployment, he has a job and will be entering management training very soon with a good company!  Thank you Santa for the belated present!

A few more pics to be posted tomorrow from my son in law's photos of the Grands on Christmas morning at their house and then I promise to move on! Love to all of you who read here and the happiest of holidays.

Happy Holidays

Our Christmas was here before we knew it and gone in a flash.  Rather than go into a long song and dance, here are some of the photos of Christmas Eve ( held at Kristen and Chris') and Christmas Day (at our house) will follow soon.  Hope you enjoy!
