Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Mary & I. Not the best angle, but we tried.

Well peeps, it has been a whirlwind of a crazy few days.  But it has been an amazing couple of days!  Thursday my Godmother Mary treated me to a wonderful evening of drinks/apps & theater!  We went with her sister, her sister’s God-daughter & her God-daughter’s mom.  We saw Billy Elliot which was amazing!  It was the perfect way to start of the weekend.  Thank you Mary for a wonderful time!

Friday was Christmas Eve.  We had the Rasmussen’s over for some Vino & present opening & my Godmother came over as well. (Mary is Godmother to Jenna, Nathan & I….so we are very lucky!).   After we had them over we headed over to the Omlie’s for a beautiful dinner.  We have been doing this for longer than 15 years now.  We were trying to decide on when we started, but couldn’t figure it out.  It has been a long time!  They have a gorgeous long table that fits an army of people.  I think that there were at least 30 people this year.  Thank you Omlie’s!  You are amazing!

Yesterday we had my mom’s side of the family over for Christmas Day along with my Brother Nate & his family. We had yet another wonderful meal & over did it on cookies & cake.  It was so nice getting to celebrate Christmas with so many people.  My mom loves her friends & family so very much & they always make her smile!  We were all very blessed to receive wonderful presents this year as well.  Thank you to all that helped make our Christmas so special!  I made a little video (of course) from yesterday.  I have become a bit of a video addict.

Thank you also to all of our friends that have stopped by for a visit & brought us gifts for our home.  We are so thankful!  Thank you Marian & Joan for the beautiful flowers.  They were perfect on our Christmas table!

I will post more pictures next time.  Other people took more pictures with my mom in them.  I didn’t pull out my camera as much this year.

I hope that everybody had a wonderful & safe Holiday.  What a wonderful time of year to feel so much love.

Prayer for Julie: Pray for continued smiles as we wind down from such a busy few days

    We wish you Happy New Year to all. Thank you for all your posts to keep us updated on how you folks are doing. I was glad to hear the roses were nice, you always wonder how they are when you dont see them yourself. Thank you for the beautiful card. Tell Julie I am trying to stay blondish, dark blonde anyway. Mom and I had a beautiful Christmas with Melissa and family. Kelly I am going to send you some pictures to the email address I have on you. Stay warm and dry, love joan
