Merry Christmas! It is almost 10:00 and I am in my pj's early and about ready for bed. I have pictures, but will upload later. Our day started about 8:00 am when the kids got up to see what Santa brought them. (Young moms out there, that is the advantage of having teenagers as they don't want to get up at the crack of dawn on Christmas mornings!) After the kids opened up presents I started breakfast...sausage, biscuits and gravy. It is guilty pleasure eating that kind of breakfast. About lunch time we drove to Dallas to visit the graveside of Pat's dad and other family members. Restland cemetery is a beautiful place and so very peaceful and calm. We sure miss Lou (also known as Papa Lou). He has been gone now since 1994. He died just before G was born! What a wonderful man he was. The afternoon was spent celebrating Christmas with Pat's mom and the rest of the kin. We had a good time! We always enjoy the Chinese Christmas exchange game. The more stealing the better! Tomorrow my side of the family comes to my house and will be here until Sunday. I foresee a lot of cleaning that has to be done tomorrow and a lot a time in the kitchen. So the question is? Would I rather travel several hours or host? I hope that each of you had a great day! Christmas seems to come earlier each year, doesn't it!
