Congratulations  one all--
we made it through the Christmas of 2015--
And I realized that this was the first Christmas since 1989 that me and my 2 kids where together for it--about 25 years--where did those years go???
why did it take us so long??
Part of those years was because of my kids partners at the time--
but mostly it was because the last 20 of those I lived in the north and the kids where in the south--and when they did come to visit me--it was always summer time--
( daughters tree)
We had a nice dinner and I even baked my southern dressing for the meal--and there was lots of leftovers--which is my supper for tonight!!!
And I think I did well with my gifts for them not really knowing their interests or likes and dislikes--the first thing they each got was towels--
yep--towel set--
I bought some of these when I first got here and just love mine--they are sooo soft--
and I wanted to share that with the kids--
here is my son's gifts--
Can you tell his favorite color???
and here is the daughters--
and they both loved the towels as both said they were in need of some new ones--
and they both loved their new shirts--
and each got a watch--my son's was a pocket watch and he was excited about that said he never had a pocket watch before and I got them both silver ones--
and here is a funny part--I never have been a gold person--even my wedding ring back in 1967 had to be silver--never talked about it with the kids--but guess what--they both prefer silver too--Isn't that crazy???
Here is what I got from them-
Now where did Miss Susie come from--???
we tried out the Rack-o game after all the gifts where done!!
