Look who came to see me today!!
Sabrina dropped Summer off here at the house so we could visit while she went on to a doctor's visit.
She hasn't lost her beautiful smile!
But don't let that pretty face fool you!
She is still in a good deal of pain.
This is what she posted on Facebook this evening:
She was in a fairly good amount of pain when she left so hopefully the next round of injections will push the pain back a little more.
When Sabrina got back we sat out in the gazebo for a nice catch up visit.
AND we made some plans for the month starting with art next Tuesday!
After they left I fixed us a salad supper using our Christmas plates.
The day has felt long and it turned cooler - so much so that I shut the doors.
I was tempted to burn the fireplace tonight but the den is still in chaos and I would want to take a pic of our first fire this season. So maybe tomorrow night. The Cowboys play then and the den should be decorated. I hope to finish decorating the bedrooms and bathrooms all by Friday night.
Summer helped me put the lights on the living room tree while she was here AND she fluffed the branches. There are 1,100 white lights and 400 colored LED lights on there.
I am waiting to finish decorating all the trees until I get the house done.
I will have some extra hands to help me this weekend......like 40 little fingers on 8 small hands.
I'm saving a couple of trees for them to do and one of them is in the guest room.
It is a bit taller than they are and it stands on the floor.
I will have a box of unbreakable ornaments, tinsel and garland and will let them decorate it all by themselves. Kailey requested colored lights be on it instead of white so that much I will have done.
The rest will be up to them!
This will be fun!
When Amber and Benjamin were growing up, they had trees in their bedrooms which they decorated by themselves. They would put them up a week before Thanksgiving.
As I've been pulling out decorations from years past, it's been a walk down Memory Lane.
This year marks the 50th Christmas I have spent in this house.
Lots of Christmas memories when my children were little.
I like that some traditions remain and 'new' ones that started years ago are now old ones.
Each year I change things up some. The den is the only one that gets decorated in much the same way year after year. That's the room I will be working on tomorrow.
Turning on all the lights in the morning and off again at night takes a little longer during the Christmas Season.
It's time to lock the doors, turn off the lights and head to bed.
