Only Six More Sleeps! ....

 
 
Well peeps, there are now only six more sleeps until Christmas Day.  December just seems to be flying by.  I was so ahead of myself, when I suddenly realized that the big day was only next week, and I hadn't yet bought the turkey. 
 
I think everything is done now, apart from the last minute shopping of fresh vegetables, cream etc.  As I write this, Eleanor will be putting her last minute bits and pieces together, as she flies off to Peru early tomorrow morning (Friday).  It's a twelve hour flight, so I expect her and her friend will sleep a lot of the way! I sent her a text just now, telling her to have a great time, but to take care of herself.
 
We will be having daughter number 2 and her husband with us on Christmas Day, along with Eli and Ruby, so I'm looking forward to that.  I think that Emma and Mark are coming for the new year although, to be honest, Emma can do without another long car journey right now.
 
I don't think I will be posting again now before Christmas, so I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you all for your friendship for another year and  for your wonderful comments.
 
I would like to wish each and everyone of you a very happy and joyful Christmas.

Hallo hallo hallo, dear Thisisme! I agree. December is flying by. 2013 flew by. This whole darned CENTURY is flying by! (LOL)

What an adventure for young Eleanor, flying to Peru. I never took a flight that lasted longer than 3 hours. I can't imagine 12 hours in the air! I know she will have a wonderful time and return with a thousand stories and pictures. It would be nice if she'd let you post them on your blog.

I know that Alison and her husband and the kids will have a terrific Christmas at your beautifully decorated house. It is a challenge for Emma to endure a long car ride in her condition. I hope she continues to improve week by week through the coming year.

Bless little Ruby's heart! With those shades on, she looks ready for an 80 degree Christmas here in Florida!

I am deeply grateful to have you as one of my very best friends, Diane. Merry Christmas to you and your family (and Sandy, hee hee) and thank you for bringing joy to the world all year round!

I hope Eleanor has a wonderful trip. I'm sure you will miss her and Emma and hubby though. I'm glad you will have the little ones with you. So much fun. And of course their Mommy and Daddy. The good news is my tree is out of the attic! Progress. Merry Awesome Christmas!

Hi Thisisme. That little Ruby is a hoot, isn't she? She can strike a pose any way on any day! That's one cool picture.

I certainly hope Eleanor does have a fantastic trip...what a great opportunity to be within another culture and experience new customs! She is so blessed, and her mind is so open to new adventures, that promise to enlighten her knowledge of life.

I know I will see you soon, but, I want you to know how much I've enjoyed your preparations for Christmas. I've not posted on my blogs yet, and hope to get a little something on for Christmas. I've had to work real hard these last two weeks at my job-year end stuff you know. So, I've really loved all the fantastic pics you've presented on facebook and on your blog.

Happy, happy, warm and joyous holidays to you Thisisme! Hugs! ♥
