Over and Done!

Hello, my dear friends!  I write this post with both happiness (we had a totally AWESOME Christmas over at my sister and brother n' law's house) and with sadness (my grandma only has just under 2 days remaining with me before she zooms off into the sky towards her home in College Station, TX.)  We have had soooooo much laughs and good times to last a life time.  She was my best gift this year and I will cherish her forever.  :0)  I love you, Grandma!!  And thank you so much Aunt Penny and Uncle Jeff for making it possible for her to visit me this holiday season.

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!
Barbara's Christmas tree.  Isn't it a beaut?????
Frankie and his mom.  Aren't they cute? :0)
Here is my grandma.  The lil' stinker had her eyes closed!! 
The beautiful table.  Very festive with its red and green plates!
Let's eat!!  From L to R: Jay, Barbara, Grandma, Frank Sr. and my dear hubby hammin' it up for the camera up front, Frankie!!
We even had a feline dinner guest!!  :0)  Barbara and Jay have 3 beautiful kitties.  Here is one of them.
Kitty enjoying her gift of a cat nip square!  :0)
We're all full and happy now!  Look at that turkey....just a plate of bones! What cannibals we were!  :0)

 Here is a little video of a light display in Barbara and Jay's neighborhood.  I hope that Blogger cooperates and uploads it right.  Just recently we have had such a time with our Internet being really slow.  Maybe everyone is on because they are home for the holidays?  Who knows!!

I hope you all had a great Christmas no matter what you did!  And from my family to yours....have a safe and happy 2011!!!!

God Bless You All!!
