Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah!!

I celebrate Christmas but I have a lot of Jewish friends whom I adore so I want to wish everyone a happy holiday for whatever you are into.

This is my last post until after Christmas.  I am wrapping presents but I had to take a little time out—boring.  Honestly, I’d rather do dishes.  I wish I had enough bags so I could just throw every present into a bag but in our new quest to save money because of new baby I am wrapping.wrapping

This afternoon I go to my sister’s so we can make the appetizers and desserts for tonight’s party.  My niece shows up and we all cook together.  I wish Sarah could be there but she has to work.  It was more fun when it was the four of us but times change which to be honest with you I always have a tough time with.  I am a glutton for routine but things are going to be changing for me fast in the future and I will just have to roll with it.

Tonight we attend the party and tomorrow we go to Obie’s father’s and step mom’s  for dinner.  Usually we go to my sister’s but from now on we are going to alternate families.  Fortunately Obie’s family is awesome and I am sure we will have a great dinner and a wonderful time.  They are very laid back and fun to be with.

I’ll take lots of photos and hopefully videos.

I want to take time now to thank all of my wonderful blog buddies for a great year.  You have all been there for me through thick and thin.  I can’t believe I am fortunate enough to have made such good friends.  I don’t say this lightly either.  I really freakin’ mean it. I love you all.

Merry Christmas and to all a Goodnight!!!

    Be careful not to accidentally wrap that new baby! Would be quite a gift, though. Happy Holidays!

    Happy Holidays!

    We usually use gift bags too. I just decided to wrap mostly everything this year though. I really stink at it, but I think (HOPE) it is more fun for people to open the wrapped gifts 😉

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! Just think next year you get to put a “My First Christmas” ornament on the tree! How cool is that?! 🙂

    I can’t remember the last time I wrapped a gift. My daughter does it all. Honestly, I don’t think I miss it much.

    Joan – you are a wonderful woman, inspirational, and full of a zest for life which is enviable. I am glad you decided to have this blog and share your life with us. I hope you, Sarah, Obie, Wasband, Little Baby To Be and all your extended family have a safe and happy holiday.

    The Merriest of Christmases to you, sweet Joan!

    Embrace change and have a grand time doing things in new ways! I did and I feel mah-velous!

    Oh, and don’t worry about the wrapping. They forget all that once the gift is open anyway! 🙂

    Love to you and yours! See ya in a few days!

    Happy Holidays Joan and thanks for the help with gift wrapping. That diagram is not rubbish at all!! 😀 It’s hilarious! It would be great if other instruction manuals were so forthcoming about their badness.
