Most of you know I had been busy since before Thanksgiving. After coming home from St Louis on the 4th of December I hit the road running and had a party or somewhere to go or company every night through Christmas Day. Now it is truly "Silent Night" here. I am just enjoying having all the decorations put away and my house back. (If you remember I put them up right after I lost Dasko and it was time they came down.)
This was the first Christmas in forever that everyone was home except Olivia. We missed her and hope next year she is here too. Seth came in from Chicago, Douglas, Anastasia and Gabe from Chattanooga, Beth and Ryan with Amelia from Il, Curt and Lindsey from Nashville, so you can see how hard it is for us all to get here. My house is small but all 22 of us got in here, and had a wonderful time. Douglas moved furniture and it is a mess, but was so nice to be able to sit around and talk and laugh. Seth and Dustin entertained us with music. Mollie loved it and danced her little heart out.
I took my decorations down yesterday and got my house back. I am playing with the mantle.(What is new you ask?)lol I love these big chargers Sandi found and brought to me. I wanted to use 2 of them, but this is subject to change.
PS: A big thank you to all of you who sent me Christmas cards and pictures. I appreciated them so much. I am sorry to say I didn't send any this year. Nor last. I will do better next year
PSS: I am so grateful for all the friends I have made Through My Back Door and hope you continue to visit. Most of all I want you to feel good when you leave.
PSSS: Do you see my blog fairy has already changed my blog? She is such a blessing to me. You know if I could have one far out wish, it would be to meet her in person as she works so hard to make me look good. I say far out because she is in the UK and I don't fly!
