MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!
It didn't take long to discover what all the noise we heard when we woke up was, as thousands of Starlings blacked the treetops and the sky intermittently as they zipped from tree to tree as a group, squawking all the time.
D-in-love sent me these pics of g-son's surprise of what Santa left for him.
Hubbie and I relaxed this morning and did absolutely nothing for a while.
#2 son came over while g-son , his dad and Pawpaw was doing some target practice with his new BB gun that uncle D bought him.
Daughter called after she had a Christmas breakfast with her boyfriend, Josh's family this morning, then they went to a movie.
#1 son's family went down to d-in-love's brother's house at 4:00 this afternoon to celebrate with them.
Aa's family went to his family's for Christmas today also.
It was nice for me to just have an "unwind" day and do nothing but rest.
I picked up all the left over empty boxes and bags and got the house back in order this afternoon.
After chores we had a light supper then rested some more on the couch and the recliner while we watched the news.
The fifth winter storm has been named, Eris, and has dropped more than a foot of new Christmas day snow on much of the mid western states. It will slowly make it's way across the country and give us more rain next week followed by colder temperatures to begin the new year.
Christmas has come and gone for another year. For me it is a very busy time but I enjoy it very much. I always get aggravated and say that I'm going to change things for next year but that attitude is always forgotten by the time next year arrives.
Christmas is a magical time for all Christians as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ , who was sent to earth to live and die as a mortal man so we could be forgiven for our sins. For years and years Christmas has had a magical power, World War 1 could have ended with Christmas that year .
Good Night, God Bless and Merry Christmas.
