A Relaxing Christmas Celebration.

Christmas #1 has flown the coop.  We decided to have the big dinner on Christmas Eve.  So it was turkey and all the fixings including homemade rolls.  One of our wonderful neighbors brought over a creme de menthe pie which we added to to the butterscotch and pecan pies already on hand.  

Christmas morning, we waited to open the stockings until Steve and Helen came over for brunch.  We had a great breakfast casserole with sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, and cheese.....very easy to make but it took a little longer to cook than I thought it would.  No problem, this was our relaxing day.  Later in the day, we watched a movie and had some great leftovers so Christmas was relaxing for me too!

Then it was off to the living room to open the presents.  Santa was very good to all of us. Harley and I got a ball launcher so he was very excited as his favorite thing in life (next to food) is playing ball.

Tomorrow the grandkids come to San Antonio so we have another Christmas to celebrate.  Guess I better get upstairs and wrap the very last of their presents.

Today several of my RVing friends and I got together for a Christmas lunch at Cheddars.  It's a rough week so there were quite a few that couldn't make it but Birdie, Vickie, Mary Jane, and I had a wonderful time.  Birdie will soon be heading south to the Rio Grande Valley (something about birding and warmer weather, lol) and another one of the ladies is heading to Florida in her RV to spend time with relatives.  Another one of the group couldn't make it today as she and her husband were off in the RV to Florida too.

Hope you all had a great Christmas!


  1. Food is definitely numero uno in our girls' lives. Looks like your babes are as spoiled as ours. A relaxing Christmas day - have to love it.

  2. Never heard of a butterscotch pie, but I'd sure like to taste a bite! I don't know how you got those two photos to sparkle, but I really liked it.

  3. Ball throwing must be a doxie genetic trait. Looks like a marvelous celebration. I also like your sparkly photos.

  4. Merry Christmas to you all. Sounds like a lot of food has been consumed in your house these past few days :))

    Love your animated lights on some of your photos.
