Where do I start? Barbara's house was all decked out in Christmas lights and good cheer. Her food was absolutely DIVINE. We had turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pickles, salad, potatoes, pecan pie, and so much more! We practically had to be rolled out of the house to the car to go home. It was also on the way home that I got my last shots of Christmas lights in Barb and Jay's neighborhood. It was pretty decked out! I'll have to remember that for next year. :0)
My neat-o brother-in-law Jay played "Santa" and handed out all kinds of goodies to us all. My grandma felt bad, though, as she got gifts but didn't give any. I told her, yes, you did.....she paid for Barb and Jay's gift (she, of course, wouldn't let me pay our half!) of stationary and pen items that everyone needs on a daily basis. The crazy thing is....Barbara and Jay got US almost the SAME items! Isn't that rad? :0) We also got a mini-dvd player that runs off rechargeable batteries. And clothes for Frankie. Slippers and a new purse for me! So many things, I can't possibly mention them all. I will say right now that both my sis and bro-in-law and mom and dad in-law were very generous in giving us both checks, too. I was just absolutely astounded at the generosity!!! If I live to be a 140, I'll never be able to pay everyone back for being so nice with us.
I took loads of pics and videos that I will share some here with you, my friends. Hopefully Blogger is working better and will let me upload the videos. We shall see.
Here we go....our Christmas in pictures!
