I have a years worth of events and ideas to talk about in depth, and while it may seem stale and belated to talk about the old news, don't be surprised if I visit these things, just to get them down and remembered.

We celebrated Christmas with our kids and grandkids on Saturday morning, Christmas Eve this year, as it was the girl's year to spend Christmas with their dad. We had such a a sweet and wonderful time having breakfast, visiting and opening gifts. The weather was amazingly warm that day, so about noon John and I ventured out and took a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, then spent the remainder of the day watching Christmas movies on TV. In the early afternoon on Christmas Day we gathered at Mom and Dad's house for Christmas dinner. It was a good weekend, peaceful and fun!
