Christmas Eve 2010

I wish to all of my friends a very Merry Christmas. Dick has been wrapping packages and placing them under the tree. I have been supervising and trying to stay organized. All is quiet at 'One Loose Thread' if we can just keep Rocky out from under the tree everything should be ok until Santa arrives.

Our children and grandchildren will be here bright and early in the morning for breakfast and to see what Santa left for them here. Then:

Opening of gifts and dinner with all of the Clyde and Flo Thompson children.Our spouses, children ,and grandchildren. What a day Christmas is for us. It was our Daddy's favorite time of the year and he always gave more than he should. The men in this family are all the same way. None of the guys want Christmas gifts, but, they always make sure that we girls have plenty. Of course the grandchildren make out like bandits. There will be plenty of laughter and surprises. Of course there are always some tears too as we remember those that we have lost and are no longer with us.

So, Have a Ho Ho Ho and don't eat to much turkey, dressing, ham and sweet potatoes. Read the Christmas Story. Say a few prayers for all of us that need them. Enjoy the after Christmas sales and remember: I only have FOUR MORE WORKING DAYS!!!!!!!
