MERRY CHRISTMAS

Trusting everyone had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Ours was not traditional....For once we were the quests and not the host. None of our children could make it home for Christmas so we decided to head south and warm up. Instead of the gray colder weather we had been having we had lots of sunshine and about 80 degrees. We went to see some friends that had moved back down to St. James Island, we had never been there and they ask us to come so we packed the summer clothes and headed south. There was no snow, no ham or turkey, just plenty of sunshine and seafood....... it is good to break tradition once in awhile. Looking forward to a NEW YEAR and trusting God that it will be a good one.

We just received some great pictures from our daughter in Illinois, taken when we went up in Oct. for a visit. This is a four generation picture, myself, daughter, grand daughter, and her two beautiful children. She has been blessed with a girl and boy, nothing like having GREAT grandchildren to help you count your blessings.

Hope everyone has a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR. We are staying home and will probably not stay up till the ball drops in New York, what about you, do you have New Year traditions to keep ?

Hi Gail,
How nice to enjoy the warm temps and seafood for a change of pace! Cute pics!
Happy New Year to you and yours!!!
Not too many traditions here other than I like to eat a piece of herring for good luck...the pickled kind!

Sounds like you had a nice celebration with your friends. I know it's hard not having family, though. Happy 2009!
