We had a wonderful Christmas.  It was different not having Christmas with my dad this year, the first time in 36 years that we haven't had Christmas Eve at my parents.  It will take some getting use to, but time for some new traditions.  We missed dad but what greater joy could their be than to be with the Lord and mom.

It has been so nice being off work this week, was able to get a lot done around the house this week and also had our grandsons here from Monday until today.  They were a big help in taking down the decorations and carrying things to the basement for me.  Now tomorrow I get to stock back up on the food!  Two growing boys eat a lot!  Our daughter also had off work, it was nice to have her home also.  Today a friend came to visit and we went to the local quilt stores, it has been awhile since I have been to any quilting stores, much less done any sewing.  Hoping now that I am getting use to working that I will be able to get back into the sewing and scrapbooking.  We will be having a quiet evening at home for New Years Eve.
