Here It Comes...

2014...Four Days and Counting...YIKES.

Christmas in the Texas Country was WONDERFUL. Lovely. Fun. Quite memorable. My Sweet Hubby (MSH) and I shared the day with family and good friends. MSH fixed a scrumptious meal of turkey, dressing, mashed taters, mashed sweet taters (that truly are more like a dessert), green bean casserole (a family favourite), yeast rolls, pecan pie and apple cobbler. Heaven. (Yes. I realize I'm one lucky woman/wife/person. I do a lot of the cleanup. I try to earn my seat at MSH's delicious table!)

Little Leighton (LL) had "Santa" at her home Christmas Eve morning. Then "Santa" here at our casa on Christmas Day. Of course, she's seventeen months old. Not quite sure what the fuss is all about. We all played it low key--just a couple of semi-big (for a tiny girl) gifts and a couple of sacks with goodies. I think TLC will do for LL what we did for her--as she grew up. She'll try to teach LL it's never about the gifts that we receive. It's always about the gifts we give. First, however, even before "gifts," it's about the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

We're fast approaching the end of The Nines, too! As y'all may remember, TLC and I committed to doing nine posts per month this year. We've not discussed our 2014 blog goals yet. We did great, I feel, on getting our "nine" posts. We've been not-so-great at our Yummies and Yeehaws. I'm guessing we'll try to commit to getting back in the groove with those.

Have a Fabulous Friday and Wonderful Weekend, wherever in the World you are!

smooches and hugs...
