Stix n Brix
We’ve been here for a couple of days wrapping things up so that the closing will go smoothly next week, but I just had to post a few shots from Christmas with the family. We left Huntington Beach real early Friday morning so that we could get Wanda set up in Mom’s driveway in Roanoke Rapids and help her with some Christmas preparations. We went to Rocky Mount on Saturday for a Christmas Eve dinner with Gin’s parents. We ate too much but it was so good. Back to Mom’s and Christmas Day with her. The rest of my family came in Sunday evening for dinner. Once again, we ate too much.
After dinner, we gathered around the tree while my great niece Xani played Xani Claus and handed out gifts to everyone. She did a real good job with the names.
It was nice weather so we could get some fresh air. Since it was a little crowded, my sister Virginia and BiL David spent the night with us in the MH. It sure was convenient and we were glad to have them.
This year we received the best gift ever from my niece Marie. Along with being a microbiologist, she is an artist along with her husband Shannon who live in Asheville. She works with different mediums. This year she made graphic magnets. Ours was a perfect life-sized rendition of Smudge which she based upon a picture from my tribute post. We were so touched that we all cried. It will stick to the fridge in the new MH nicely. I’ll get shots of that in a few weeks hopefully.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
