Christmas, Etc.

I must apologize because I never got here before Christmas!  I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I know our household did.  It was glorious with the girls, their hubbies and the grandboys here!  There is just something magical about Christmas when shared with children.  I don't know if it is the anticipation, the squeals of delight when they see what Santa has left them under the tree or just their innocence.  My grandboys, Owen and Jack just enjoyed the holiday season to the fullest!  Christmas Eve John and I went up to Jenny and Kevin's for a casual Christmas Eve dinner.  We came home and then we went with Ken and Megan to the 11:00 candlelight service at church.  It was just beautiful!  I love looking around the church seeing all the candles lit and everyone singing Christmas carols!  Just priceless!

Here are some photos of our Christmas Day:

Memories were definitely made that day!  

The Tuesday before Christmas I decided to become a Mary Kay consultant.  I went to a makeover with my daughter, Jenny.  I tried the Time Wise Skin Care products and loved the results so much I decided to sell it.  If you want to take a look and purchase something, you can go to my website:  I will ship for free anywhere in the continental US.  No pressure though!!

Yesterday Megan, Jenny and I went to lunch at Hickory Tavern and then we went to the movies.  We went to see "Into the Woods".  It was wonderful and we had a great time!  I love spending time with my girls.  We don't get to do that very often by ourselves, but when we do we have a great time!!

On Christmas Eve Day my boss gave me a AMEX gift card!!  Today John and I went to Best Buy and purchase a Blue-Ray DVD player.  Now we can watch our DVD's in wonderful color and clarity!  It is wireless too!

Tomorrow the grandboys and Jenny will be coming for dinner.  I promised Owen I would make my Mac 'n Cheese, hotdogs and baked beans.  He isn't much of an eater so when we know he will eat, I try to make something he likes!

I think that is about all for now!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year to all of you!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
