John came and spent two weeks with me at Christmas. We had such a good time. I baked and baked and baked some more for all my neighbor gifts and family gifts. I had to make John his Mexican Wedding Cakes. John did tons of dishes for me. We had Christmas dinner with Ron and all of us. I got Elements 11 for Christmas. I just love it. I have decided that I am going to start doing the things I love again. And I do love scrapbooking.
Heather called me to tell me that I am going to be a Great Grandma. I am happy for her and hope this is what she needs to give purpose to her life. I just love her to pieces.
The day after Christmas Tommy, Austin, Bailee, Harley and John went to Utah to spend time with Dean and Amie and kids. We dropped John off at his apartment and went up to Elk Ridge for Christmas Dinner with the Ingram's. Amie made a delicious Ham dinner for us. Austin thinks she is such a good cook. Of course his favorite was her delicious rolls.
I went to lunch with Heather and John and the next day I went with Gerri and Heather. I love my friends and family. It snowed the entire time we were there. Austin loved it because he could to sledding with his cousins.
We left on Saturday and drove home so I could be back for Church on Sunday. The Young Women's Presidency talked and did a wonderful job. Really made me think about what I need to be doing.
I came home and put the perishables away and took Bailee and Marissa to Wal-mart so Bailee could take her sweat shirt back that her other grandma bought her. What a mess that was. So many people but we finally go it done. I came home and proceeded to put all my groceries away. Took me forever. Now it's time to go to bed so I can get up and make a Ham dinner for New Year's Day.
Happy Birthday to my wonderful son Dean. I left him a birthday wish on facebook. He is so special to me.
Grateful Statement: I am grateful for this wonderful Christmas Season. I'm grateful that I was able to see my entire family except Malachi. I am blessed to have the kids and grandkids I have.
