It's official our luck ran out today to be missed by the bad weather. We have had freezing rain today which they say we are going to be getting snow on top of it later this evening can be as much as 7 inches. I did get out long enough to mail the rest of my Christmas cards and get me something to eat. It had just started to sprinkle when I came out of my last stop and I knew the best place for me was at home. I went shopping with my daughter yesterday to try to finish up what I needed. I had a very enjoyable time with her.
We needed to pick up my youngest grandson because daddy was working late. I though I was coming home instead they took me to dinner with them. It was amusing with my grandson ordering our drinks and dinner. He didn't ask he just did it. What was funny was that he was right. We went to Famous Dave's.
He helped his other grandmother bake cookies yesterday and he was going to do that again this morning that was his work for today. He makes you laugh. I have spent my afternoon embroidering and watching the bearcats play for the National Championship in Alabama. Next year it will be closer to home playing at the soccer complex in Kansas City, Kansas and I hope they are there again. They ended up 15-0 for the season. Not bad for a 2A collegiate team. They had over 4.000 there to watch them last weekend.
Have you got your Christmas dinner planned? Our family has decided not to do the traditional big meal, but to have homemade vegetable beef soup or chili with sandwiches. Of course, there will be sweets of all kinds which we really need. I definitely will have to exercise after the cookies, candy and all of the sweet treats. We always have the ham and turkey with all the trimmings and the two holidays are so close together or at least that is the way it seems.
The boys are all out of school for the next two weeks which I think everybody was ready to have a break.
Prayers are being said that you all have a safe and warm Merry Christmas. Mother Nature doesn't seem to want to be kind to us right at the moment.
