Merry, Merry and Happy, Happy
It's almost here again. So the next few days will be busy ones.
The last time the three youngest Grands were here, they gave me those big, sad kitten eyes while telling me how much they love caramel popcorn. And since the first batch I made has long since disappeared between Oldest Son and me, I'm making a couple of batches to take with when we all get together.
It has been an unusual winter here in southern Minnesota so far. Although there have been a couple of light snowfalls, the white stuff has melted shortly after it hit the ground. Most of the moisture has been in the form of rain. But the weather guessers are predicting one to three inches of snow for later today, so we may have a white Christmas after all. I'm glad I only have to travel across town.
We will be together as a family early in the day on Christmas Eve. I always look forward to that time for I love it when all my kids and grands are in one place at the same time. Granddaughter Nicki made it home from the Army base in Texas. I treasure this time for she will be stationed in South Korea when she finishes her training in March. It may be some time before she can come home again.
Neither Oldest Son nor I have any other plans for Christmas Day, so we will spend time together. Today is grocery delivery day and I have a ham on order. Even though there are just two of us, it is still fun to fix a nice Christmas dinner.
I am grateful for those who visit this silly little blog. I so enjoy reading and responding to your comments. It is like having a whole passel of friends even though we have never met in person. I wish you all a peaceful, joyous and blessed Christmas and a New Year much better than the one that is nearly finished.
