Post Christmas post (pic heavy)

Well, I spent part of the afternoon/evening (prevening for those "Big Bang Theory" fans) at my sister's. Got to play with the grand-nieces. So much fun! While Jesus IS the reason, it's truly about the kids on Christmas day. Here are some pics of my day:

The nephew, his wife and the grand-niece: Melissa, David Jr and Sophia

My sister

The niece and grand nieces: Maislin, Kathy and Leighlan


My step-mom has improved on her selections for me! 

(I really dislike the fact that I cannot use Windows Live Writer on this computer. My pics are so disorganized :( )

I missed my mom, niece and brother in Michigan, but kinda thankful I wasn't able to go there this time as they were without power last weekend due to ice storms. Yeah, I don't miss that weather one bit! But it would have been nice to spend the holiday with my mom. Maybe in 2014...

I also missed my dad. I really wanted to go to my sister's earlier in the day but she just didn't want anyone over before 3pm. I just didn't like sitting around all day and him not being here. We always spent a little time together before going off to whichever family member we decided to spend the day with. I couldn't even cry because it hurt too much. I had a minor procedure on the 12th and had staples in my scalp until the 26th, hence the "hurt too much to cry" as my facial expression pulls my scalp. LOL...TMI, I know. But all is well, the staples are gone, and the cysts are non-cancerous (per usual).

I did pull out "The Gardeners" and put some time in on it this week. I plan to work on it a bit more this weekend. I have 1 of 4 pages completed now. Whew!!! I think the coming year will see me spending more time on my UFOs even if I have to force myself. I have to finish "Coming Home for the Holidays" and Cirque des Carreaux" in 2014. I just have to! Especially the 2nd by Mother's Day. I would love for her to have it hanging on her wall by then.

Hope everyone has safe plans for Tuesday night! Don't drink and drive!! And if I don't get back on here and post before then....
