Merry Christmas

Hi, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed their day with their family and friends.  We had a nice quiet Christmas, we opened our presents, my son received lots of fire related items.  He is a volunteer fireman and is going on to become a fireman/EMT.  Loves it, I not sure that I do, everytime he goes out to a fire, I worry until he gets back and there have been alot of fires lately, it is so dry here, that fires are starting from cars backfiring, people burning when they shouldn't,etc. Hubby then baked a ham, which was yummy.  Tomorrow it is supposed to be only in the 40's and 20-30 mph winds, so I think I will have a  pot of beans with some brocoli cornbread and keep a fire going all day. 

This is a picture of our tree after Santa came.

Mary and I had never been Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve before, so we got up early and headed to Hilliard, to visit our friend, Beth, at her primitive store, B & B Crafts. Mary stopped for coffee at McDonalds, and guess who we saw ...... Mr. & Mrs. Santa and their little helper waving from the window at us as we drove away

 We made it to Hilliard and this is our friend Beth, bagging up our purchases, she was having a half-off sale on everything in the store,  needless to say, we bought quite a few things.

We took off for Orange Park, of course KOHL's and Kirklands, two of our favorite stores.  We then had lunch at McAlister's Deli and decided it was time to head home.  We definitely want to start a new tradition and go shopping on Christmas Eve again.

Bye, Cyndy
