Default Christmas Day ~ December 25, 2012

Merry Christmas CruiseMates! Have a wonderful day full of Family, Friends and Fun.
Take a moment or two to send a prayer to those souls in Newtown Connecticut and others who may need a prayer.

Laura

Merry Christmas to you Laura as well, plus to each Cruisemate out there and all the ships at sea!

Santa was obviously here probably just a couple of hours ago as I now have enough anthracite to heat the old homestead for at least a year! I do wish however, that he'd used his noodle as I have no furnace in which to burn the coal. Also, doesn't he understand that twelve tons of coal is kinda' out of place in the living room?!

Am off to Deanna's and Lucky's this morning for Christmas dinner after which we're all going to see Les Miserables. I understand it's an excellent and up lifting movie. We'll just overlook that guillotine thingy. My favorite Christmas quote is approps for that flick. Of course I'm talking about, "If they're going to die then let them do it and decrease the surplus population!"

Had a good friend who for all practicable purposes is a member of the family over for supper last night. I fixed two twelve ounce Lobster tails as the "meat" course. The lobster is also a tradition in this house on Christmas Eve.

Here's wishing a very Merry Christmas accompanied by a heartfelt "Happy Hanukkah" for all of our Jewish family members!!

Hi Kids,
The white stuff is slowing floating down, to add a bit of glam to Christmas morn. Pretty & fleeting, just how I like it.

The Mother of all turkeys is in the oven,and since I pre prepped, I can take a break for a bit.

I hope Mike & Betty are home safe,and sound, you all got a cruise in your gift bags,and blessings on all of you.

Merry Christmas..xoxo

A very Merry Christmas Morning to all my Mates! It is bright and sunny, cold and clear, not a flake in sight, which is good, because we have an hour's drive today to have Christmas dinner with friends.
Had a peaceful Christmas Eve last night, with a visit to church for carols and candlelight, and then a drive around to look at amazing Christmas lights on the way home.
The two puppies are having a ball playing with each other, as seen here:



They all helped each other rip open new toys this morning, then spent the morning stealing said toys from each other - Emma included!
Lucy of course, is still on top of the fridge...

Wishing you all a great day, whatever you're doing and with whomever you are spending it!

Merry Christmas one and all.

We have peace on earth here in Washington. Most of the politicians have gone away.

Merry Christmas from South Texas where the temperature will be in the 70's today but will be freezing tonight. The only white Christmases we have here is when you put whipped cream or powdered sugar on something.

Merry Christmas! We have spent the morning with our 2.5 year old grandson and fortunately he is feeling much better as he was not well last night. What a joy to see him open his presents from Santa. Safe travels for all those who are in the path of that storm moving up from Texas to the eastern seaboard.

Merry Christmas. We've had our ice and now it's snowing. As long as we keep power we're good.

Its late in the day but I will say it any way, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our Cruisemates.

Attended Church on Sunday and Candlelite Seervices last nite. Outstanding both were as we were at a Methodist church. The Candle Service was so different to any I have attended, Very enjoyable.

We will be here in Gladstone, Mo til Jan 2 then we head home. Gonna spend 2 days on the road so we can enjoy the riding without rushing. Goning the St Louis, Nashville, Atlanta Route to our WARM weather in the Sunshine state.

We had a very wonderful family gift giving this morning. Gosh I never seen so many packages. Loved it all.

Be safe wherever you are and be right on with the coming HAPPY NEW YEAR.
