Full Weekend

We have had a very busy weekend with our family. My Christmas wish was granted when our oldest flew home. We spent a lot of time talking about where he was at, the difference between the weather, things that were available to go see there.
He said that one job he was working on was close to a Naval Airport. He heard the jets and it was the blue angels practicing. It was awesome to see. 
He flew back today and had a non-stop flight from Kansas City to New Orleans. They were late taking off and some were complaining they were missing the tail-gating at the Saints game. He didn't tell them how close he lived to the stadium nor that he goes by there every day as he goes to work. They had originally booked him through Houston. He was glad for the non-stop. Made it to New Orleans by the time he would have been reaching Houston and had a layover. 
The boys had so much fun with their Uncle John. Of course, they had to build their new Lego sets that Santa brought with help from Uncle John. We had breakfast with him this morning and visited with him until time to leave for the airport. 
I am not ready to go back to work and it doesn't seem like it should be the last week of the year. Where has the  time gone?? I just wish it would slow down to a slower pace so that you had time to smell the flowers as the saying goes.The weather for Christmas was a lot different then it has been in the previous years. We have had the cold, but not really the snow yet. Maybe we will be lucky and not have one like we had the last couple of years. Of course it doesn't help the ones who push snow. 
The boys want to go coasting before they go back to school. My oldest grandson would love to go to Snow Creek by Weston, Missouri where he could go skiing. They went there one year on a field trip and he wants to go back. 
I know we all probably ate way to many sweets and food. Thank goodness it only comes once a year where we have so many cookies and candies. 
Every body stay warm and if traveling be safe. It is late so I need to say good night.

Oh sweet Shirley,
I too wish I had the answer to where the time goes.....it just seems to slip on by, but I think the secret is knowing to use every precious moment of it.
I am over the top happy that you had your son home for the holidays. I am glad the family was together and so much love and sharing was abundant.
We do have our blessings to be ever so grateful for. I think our cup does run over...

You had better get your cars pillowcases going and done before you end up like me and it takes you three years. I have promised myself to do much better this year.
I think my problem is that once Christmas comes and goes, I don't want to think about it for a year. You can't get the stockings done with that train of thought. HA, I only wish...
My love to you and your family for a very Happy New Year,
Char
