Finally ---- you're all addressed and stamped.
Yes you're getting the American Flag.....have you seen those ugly stamps they have out for Christmas? The Knit ones. Geeesh, how festive is that?
If you're not on my NICE list and want to be just email me your address!
The tough part about cards this year was when I got to Penny's name.
I had to do a double take.
It's not easy realizing that someone is not here anymore and you can't send a greeting....I see her name in my sidebar or in my fav's under my J-Land folder.
But I'm sure that Penny is having a Merry Christmas in Heaven!!!
This morning my Mother and I are having a conversation over what to do for Christmas eatin and visitin.....she wants to visit each of our homes and bring over gifts AFTER we have lunch at her house on Christmas Day.
OR she may put the birds in the oven and head over to my nephew's house to check out his loot from Santa before lunch!
My Nanny insists that her family all gather at her home Christmas Eve for dinner. Last year was soup if you remember.
I told her NOT this year!!! That's NOT Christmas.
So Mom and I have decided on heavy finger foods etc. I know who will end up cooking most of that!
I don't mind at all. Just wish the SIL would help out more. (Did I say that out loud??)
Today is the 10th Anniversary of Tom's Mother's passing. The entire family is sad of course. I never had the pleasure to meet her. (if you remember an entry on this was that Tom stood me up on our first date and blamed it on his Mom's passing later - what an excuse!!)
Earlier today Tom was watching a home movie -one made in August before his Mom died. She was on dialysis, had other issues.... I guess she "knew" she was handing Tom over to "good hands" by leaving this world and leaving him with me!!
(Gee thanks Mom)
So, here's to Betty! You raised 6 and taught them well! I wish we could have had the chance to meet!
