Santa had arrived!

I hope you all had a a great Christmas! Ours here was pretty much celebrated in the same fashion as always…food, family and fun! My husband came home! My niece and great niece from the southern part of the state came and so did the rest of our gang. We celebrated Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my mom’s home in style. Everyone pitched in by bringing Holiday goodies to share in our feast! My mom did well in spite of her stroke that she had in September. The day just required a bit more planning and organization than usual. The only one missing for the festivities was my 85 year old Aunt who became very ill and is now hospitalized with dehydration and fluid in her lungs. We wish her a speedy recovery to come.

The new year and new decade is fast approaching! Wherever you are and however you celebrate may your New Year be filled with Health, Happiness and Prosperity in 2010!

Faaaabulous Friday!

Oh my three weeks form today is Christmas Day…where has the year gone. I have missed the last 4 months it seems, taking care of my mom. Thanksgiving came and went, it was uneventful mind you! No Thanksgiving Dinner for us, as we waited patiently to run off to some shopping the day after. I almost did not go, as this was a 30 year tradition of my mom and I. But I took my niece along for the madness. She made some purchases and I made none! Seems funny, but this year I have lost interest in the Holidays. Christmas was always one of my favorite days of the year, but I have been overwhelmed taking care of family matters. This year the holidays will be quiet and hopefully I will be able to see my husband since we haven’t seen each other since the beginning of August.
