Home Sweet Home

Am home after a wonderful 2 weeks with my daughters and grands (of course the son in laws too). No snow but record breaking warm days. Played lots of rummy, monopoly,and put one and a half puzzles together. G and Q you are on your own finishing the last one. Did some thrift store shopping and a little retail shopping. Lots of visiting friends and family and way too much eating. Enjoyed movie and popcorn night with the grands as well as just sitting and talking. Santa found me in the mountains and filled my stocking! We were awaken at 2am to see what Santa had left and by afternoon a nap was on my to do list. What a blessing to be able to spend time with each daughter and grand. And daughter Melody brought me home and is spending 4 days with 2 of her children and baby E. I am loving having them here though I have a terrible chest cold and sound horrible. Baby E is getting my cold and H and J have the stomach bug so Melody has had her hands full here. We did get to spend the day at the mall the first day here. The grands had Christmas money burning a hole in their pockets. Rusty survived the two weeks but was very depressed and didn't eat much. He hasn't left my side for a second except when I made him stay home when we went shopping. He was right by the door when we came back. Bella was depressed and not eating but is now back to her happy self. Hopefully all the critters and myself will be back to normal very soon. Have photos to share later. Thank you to the two very special ladies that helped with the Christmas gifts for the family we helped. The pjs were loved and the panther hat and scarf were a big, big hit. We didn't stay to see the gifts opened. Just left them under their tree so they could have them Christmas morning. The mom and twins were very, very grateful. Brought tears to my eyes and felt very blessed to be able to be a part of their Christmas. Promise to be back to normal posting soon but now spending time with Melody and grands and hopefully getting over this cold.
Count those blessings!!

So glad to hear that you had a nice time with your family over Christmas. Warms my heart to hear that all went well with the family you helped. Hope you start feeling better in time to ring in the New Year.

I hope you feel better soon and the poor doggies too. Missing someone must be awful for them and they don't know if you are ever coming back!!
Lot's of snow here and bitter cold!
