a wonderful Christmas with loved ones.
So you all now know, that I never did make it back on here for a pre-Christmas post as planned but such is life these days. We all had a beautiful Christmas and yes, my father was able come. We anticipated the day with much concern and then his doctors gave him the clear to come. I spent a great deal of time taking care to sanitize my home top to bottom before he arrived. He was tired and stayed a short while this year but we were so grateful to see him! Amen!
He had a bit of a set back this week as he was to begin another round of his chemo they discovered pneumonia and he is being treated accordingly so we are of course worried but grateful the doctors caught it quickly. Thank you all for your continued prayers, we certainly need them and I so appreciate you all.
Christmas came rather quickly this year and while I was able to capture alot of it on film (hmmm...no more film more like, captured on the computer instead) I couldn't find a minute to post it all so I am doing a Christmas rewind today, I hope you are not sick of it all already, if so I understand! This is a long, picture-heavy-catch-up post....just to warn you.
The kitchen was decorated all up in it's holiday finery....
This guy below was made by me many Christmases ago. With each child he would end up missing a few parts since he is toddler height, lol. Although, quite battered it reminds me of the christmases when my girls were little and he gets sentimental rights to stay and each year he takes his rightful place in the corner of the kitchen.
All around the Christmas Farmhouse.....a peek.
Of course we set up the Christmas Village too. I think these are my younger children's most favorite Christmas decorations. They will sit there in the dim light of the evening looking the whole thing over in awe once it's all been put together.
New Year's Eve at home with Family and friends. We have done this for the past several years. We get together with cousins and friends and celebrate together in the safety of our home. This year we all held out until the ball dropped, another memorable one for sure. Resolutions? Oh, we'll talk more about that in the next post....lol.
I have been around to several of your blogs recently to catch up, however, blogger was giving me a hard time each time I tried to comment (ugh)...it was such a treat to catch up though.
I will keep trying to comment though so you will know I stopped by to see you...of course I have so much to say too, lol.
Well, if you've stuck it out to the end of this post, thank you! Thank you for making it worth my while to continue to post, thank you for your support and prayers and
thank you for coming back to read my posts!
