Happy Holidays!

I want to wish you all a Happy Holidays and/or Merry Christmas! No matter what tradition or holiday you celebrate, I want you all to know you’re important to me! And I sincerely hope you have a safe, warm and joyful times with your loved ones! (This in the storm areas or traveling, please be careful!)

We’ve been celebrating since last weekend. We had one family party last Sunday, another one yesterday at Wizard’s mom, then Sunday will just be us and Turbo plus his parents, then sometime next week another small gathering with my sister and her husband. The important thing is spending times with those we love even if we somehow spread it out over time and tons of travel miles. I’m a big believer in making the effort as long as we’re up to it.

Right now, I’m debating if I have time to make another Christmas cake for Turbo…the answer is NO, LOLOL! I’m going to try to resist the urge.

If any of you are around and have a few moments, share what you’re doing!

Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkuh! Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Festivus, and Blessed Yule. I think that covers everything. The whole point is to be merry, happy, share with family and friends, and enjoy. I’m workin’ on it. LOL

    The Siberian Slam/Blast/Bomb/whatever people are calling it hit us early yesterday morning. Still frigid today–a whopping 6 degrees at the moment. Luckily, we don’t have to go anywhere until Christmas Day, when we head up to the Kids for Santa, stockings, presents, and cinnamon rolls. Then back home for me to put the turkey on for sammiches Christmas night, and to Uncle Fix-It and Aunt Hooie’s house for brief presencts at some point in the afternoon for presents with them and maybe pie.

    First round of roll-making is done (neighbors and a friend of Only’s who begged for cinnamon rolls and since she just had a baby…) Shopping is done. Laundry is done. I’ve located the bin with all the gift bags and tissue paper. Present wrapping commences today. Tomorrow is the next round of roll making.

    On the good news front, Baseball Boy wants to learn how to make my rolls. YAYAYAY! Only knows how but sincer her idea of grilled cheese sandwich is sliced cheese slapped between two piece of bread and heated in the microwave, BB is the chief cook. He enjoys it. I’m thankful! And yes, at some point over the holiday, he and Stormy will come for a cooking lesson.

    Puppers go out for about ten minutes and then want in. Pete is content in the garage (I did turn on the small space heater out there) and the porch ferals seem to be weathering the deep freeze. The grown is white so if it doesn’t melt before Sunday, I guess technically, we’re having a white Christmas. LOLOL

    On that note, I need more coffee and some gumption to face the wrapping marathon. Wish me luck!

    Have a very Merry Christmas, Jen and Wiz, and the same to your families. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all who hang out here. Stay safe and warm and may the spirit of the season fill you will joy. Also, if you still believe, may Santa bring you your fondest wish. ;) 🥶🎄🎅🏼💖🎁

    Merry Christmas!

    Looks like you have had and are having a wonderful time gathering with family. It’s nice that you can break it up in groups. That way you can really visit and enjoy one another.

    Oh, I see a cake for Turbo ☺. No matter how busy we grandmas are somehow we still find time for our little ones.

    It’s super cold -5F wind chill -35F but not much snow. It’s going to be a cold and cozy Christmas for us this year ☺.

    Because of the weather I didn’t get my hair done but rescheduled for next Friday.

    I have everything done except a gift for hubs. He’ll get an IOU.

    The 2 younger boys and families are coming over Christmas morning around 10 and I’m making a brunch. Before anyone shows up I’ll bake cinnamon rolls so hubs has some food in his belly. I’ll bake up two egg casseroles, one veggie and one meat. I’ll also do hash browns and some bacon. Eggnog and juices will be there too.

    Middle is bringing bagels from Cleveland Bagel Co. (I love the rosemary ones) and youngest’s lady is making muffins.

    Harrison and family got the keys to the new house yesterday. They are so excited. Their contract for rental they’ve been in is through March so they can take their time moving in to the new house. Youngest is thinking of driving down and helping move some stuff with his truck.

    That bad tooth of hubs is really bothering him. He saw the dentist on Tuesday but they have closed the office until next Wednesday. She gave him and antibiotic and I’ve been pumping him full of painkillers. Sure hope he can make it to Wednesday. It has not been fun.

    I hope you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
