What Happens Between Thanksgiving and Christmas?????

Wow!  It was just Thanksgiving and NOW  Christmas is almost here!!  Would you like to know WHY  that I think Christmas is almost here?  WELL, today my cell phone rang and I knew that it was my Indiana daughter (she changed my ringtones all around when we were visiting her in October and gave herself a musical one--I do not know how she did it--nor do I wish to know!!).   However, when I answered it--it was NOT her.  IT WAS SANTA CLAUS!!   Yes, he actually called me--ho,ho, hoing!  He said that he had heard that I had been very good this year and that he would be bringing me a PUPPY for Christmas.  I kept saying, "No, No, I do not want a PUPPY--EVER!"  .   But he would not listen--just kept up all this JOLLY talking!  Hmmm!  Wait till I talk to Sheri!  She just HAPPENS to have 5 puppies (Schnoodles).  So, I called her and I said (loudly), " I DO NOT WANT A PUPPY!  I WANT AN IPAD!!!!!"     And, then I shared with her that one of my daughter-in-laws (I won't say which daughter-in-law, I'll just say she lives CLOSE to me) had told me that what I needed was a KINDLE--which Sheri thought was a very good idea!  It has internet access!  And one of my daughters( I'll not say which one-only that she gives shots sometimes!!!) told me that what I needed was a LAPTOP.  It is really nice to have so many people who know what I need!  Don't you think so?  Anyway, it is beginning to look like I will have to get my own IPAD.   The sad part is that my children do not think I can operate an IPAD!!!!   THEY ARE GOING TO BE SO SURPRISED!!    Well, back to Christmas--I tremendously enjoyed the Christmas Musical at my sister's church.  They did such a good job--in fact, it was SO good that I stayed an extra night and watched it again!  And, it did give me a good dose of Christmas energy.  I am ashamed to tell you that I lost it when I got home!!   Charity and I drug the Christmas tree out of the attic by ourselves!  Then, we worked on it like a puzzle and finally got it up!   That is as far as it has gotten!  No lights, no decorations, just  a TREE--and, no plans for any either!  I would be willing to bet that Christmas will come and go whether that tree gets decorated or not!

A Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

I did go to my sister's house on Monday evening!  We got an early start on Tuesday (well, maybe not TOO early) but you should know what I mean--that is if you have a sister!!   I have been telling my friends that we actually had a 'cleaning marathon' on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, we had a 'cooking marathon' and on Thursday, we had an 'eating marathon'!!!!!   We did have a great time! We managed to get everything done on time and we even were able to do a short sprint to Target!!  We had SO much food!  God is SO VERY GOOD!   After eating, some of us made 'Christmas Tags' with paint and glue and Christmas wrapping paper!  The others just WATCHED us make them!!!  Both groups had FUN!
As for the birthday pictures, it required a little more technical experience than either my sister or I possessed!!  No problem--my brother-in-law came to our aid!!  I hate to admit this, but he left me to choose the ones that I wanted to post and to delete the ones I did not want.  I DID THAT EXACTLY LIKE I WAS SUPPOSED TOO!   And I was SO proud of myself!!! However, I also deleted everything that was on my camera--including the pictures that my youngest daughter had taken at the Georgia National Fair!  Sorry, Charity!!!  OUCH!   Someday, I am going to be SO good using computers, cameras and computer equipment--I just KNOW that I am!!  When my kids asked me (during our Thanksgiving meal) what I wanted for Christmas, and I told them that I wanted an IPAD , they thought that it was a JOKE!     I WAS NOT JOKING!   Someone even said that perhaps in about 10 or so years I would have enough saved to buy me one!!  HUMPH!  And , if that was not humbling enough, one of them even said , "Well, Mom, mostly college students use IPADS!"   (Does anyone know if that is true??)  Speaking of Christmas, it will soon be here. I am planning to go back to my sister's this Sunday to hear their choir present a Christmas musical!  I hope it will help me to have some Christmas energy because  we  do not even have our tree up and decoratedWell, perhaps tomorrow--after all, 'tomorrow is another day'!        
  Then, again,  there is always next week!
