Christmas Eve 2011


What a great time we've been having. The day before Christmas Eve our friends Kathy and John took us to lunch at our favorite place in Muskogee. Her boss had given her a cash present and she wanted to share it with us! We had a great meal and a wonderful time visiting. She also gave me a gift certificate to Hobby Lobby; so I must hurry and go shopping soon! I gave her a bar of the soap my daughter made for me and some home made Biscotti. Yes, I re-gifted, but I think it was okay, I still have 4 bars of soap left! And I know Kathy loved it.

Later on the above mentioned day, Kathy contacted me and said she thought we should get together on Christmas Eve and have a party! I said that was a great idea, that I was baking a cake to celebrate Jesus' Birthday and I would bring it. Well, it ended up we had a great comfort food dinner - mac n cheese, grilled pork chops, weiners, deviled eggs, 5 bean casserole, cole slaw, fruit/jello salad and birthday cake and apple pie! The frosting came out of the tube as big as my little finger and I didn't have room for "birthday", but I'm sure Jesus didn't mind!

And best of all, Jackie - Kathy's dog - sang Happy Birthday with us and Jesus Loves Me. That dog cracks me up! You sign and she sits down and starts right in singing with you. A great time was had by all.

This Christmas tree is in Kathy's kitchen, by the sink. Yep, those are bobbers on it! They used to live on a lake..........

This is the bottom of her Cowboy tree in the living room. I should have gotten a full tree view, but didn't. You get the idea.

This is Kathy's collection of howling coyotes on her fireplace mantel.

There is always something to look at when you are at Kathy's house. I've got a couple more pics but I'll save them for tomorrow maybe. One thing we did while I was there: Kathy had a box of books she's read and wanted me to go through them. Lordy! I brought home about 22 books and they all look so good I can't wait. But first I have to finish the 2 library books I have here at home.

That's all I know for this time. Take care and God bless you. I hope your Christmas was full of joy.
