The above picture is Avery and her cousin, Danielle. She's 4 years older and Avery thinks she's so neat. I can remember being that age and thinking my cousin that's 5 years older was wonderful in every way. What's neat is that I still feel that way! It was such an age difference then, but now at our age it doesn't matter at all.
Here's my daughter and her husband Thursday evening getting ready for the big dinner. I will list the menu because I enjoy reading what other people have at their meals. It's kind of like Hee Haw with grandpa listing the food. Here goes: Turkey, Stuffing, Ham, Mashed Potatoes, gravy, macaroni and cheese, green bean casserole, creamed corn, rolls, deviled eggs, Pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cake, and Avery made Peanut Butter Cups. They were a lot like Reese's cups and she did a super job. They were in the little papers and everyone seemed to enjoy them. You know Nana just had to test one.
Here's a picture of some of the food. I believe we will do a repeat Christmas. We had the meal later in the day and my daughter was so much calmer. She had time to work on everything and not feel so stressed. After the meal we played a word game Quiddler. It was our first time to play it and it was pretty fun.
Last night we decorated a 12 foot tree for our Love Lights a Tree for donor families and recipients. I enjoyed helping as much as I could. I can't climb ladders, but I can put hooks on pretty silver, green and blue balls. Thursday we will have the lighting ceremony and we are excited about it.
I can't wait to jump around and visit my blog friends. I need to decorate my blog for Christmas. I got some bad news today that one of my friends has just been diagnosed with uterine cancer.She's devastated, but believes God will be with her on this journey. She's 68 and her name is Martha. Please say a prayer for her. We believe prayers are heard and that the Lord is still on the throne.
If you haven't heard Merry Christmas yet....I just want to say, "We say Merry Christmas!"
