Sneak peak of our Christmas Eve 2014

I cherish every moment because it goes by way to fast.
It was a fun Christmas Eve.

This is kraut and sausage cooking on the porch so not to smell up the whole house.

We always do buffet style

Good thing I have 2 tables ..very cozy ( and tight)

Good thing I bought gingerbread mix.
Yup, girls wanted to make cookies and they were good!

Did your Christmas wishes come true?
Mine did, I just wanted to be all together.

Did  anybody do the sales today?
Not me.
I took my tree and all the decorations down today, packed all away and cleaned.
Unbelievable beautiful weather today, sunshine all day and in the 50's.
Plans for New Years?
I will be with my sister in Florida and can't wait.
Driving down and half way I will be stopping and staying with BettyJ ( blog friend Through My Back Door)) for the night and can't wait to meet her in person. 

Happy New Year Wishes for all of you!!!!

I want to do this next year,
Not many people know this about me but I use to be quite the ice skater. When I was 11 years old we moved out of town to the country ( not country anymore) on a lake. Man-made lake but still pretty big with lagoons. One of the lagoons was in our back yard and so was the " beach" Remember when stretch pants were popular? That Christmas I got those and a pair of ice skates with pom poms! ( I forgot to mention I went to the roller rink alot so I knew I could ice skate). I was out everyday, some times all day no matter what. We would build a bonfire on the beach, neighbor kids would all come out and skate the day away. We would turn all of our floodlights on in the back yards so we could see, sometimes.
This went on every Winter for years until I left home and got married.  Great wonderful memories I am very thankful for.

I have not put on a pair of ice skates in a long time but this year...I am going for it.  We have a lake near our house. Just like riding a bike right? I know I still have it in me. Norm and I use to roller blade a lot but quit when I tore my ACL.
Don't worry I will start out slow.

Happy Christmas Wishes

One more week till Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve excitement is starting to hit me!!!
This  picture is of my 4 grandkids 2 years ago but I love this picture.
I have to laugh because now they are all taller than me!
( I will get this pose from them this year so you can see how much they have grown)

We are having ham with all the trimmings.
It will be a yummy Christmas feast.

~Merry Christmas~
