Good morning and Merry Christmas everyone. It's very early, only a little after five a.m. Pogo and I woke up early so I figured I may as well make myself a cup of coffee and type my post. Actually, I'm also having a big mug of hot Cream of Wheat cereal.
Pogo and I want to wish everyone a joyful and blessed Christmas. Here is my Christmas card for this year. Yup, that's my special little guy singing his little heart out.
My goodness, it's been such fun around here. Yesterday, DIL Janet came by dressed as one of Santa's elves and carrying a huge bag of presents. Yes, I know, she really spoils me and Pogo. But we love it!
Here's Pogo checking out his new bag of toys. You can tell by the look on his face in the second photo that he's quite the happy little guy.
Here Pogo is checking out my new M&M Christmas tree. Janet taped a tiny string of candy cane lights to it. Oh my gosh, it really is adorable. I'll take better photos of it to share.
Afterwards, Pogo took his new toys and sat on the sofa with Auntie Janet. I have to tell you, my little guy had a super day!
Inside the little Christmas tree was a lot of packages of M&M's and a gift card to JoAnn's Fabric store. Woo Hoo! Then she asked me to open the two huge packages that she had brought. Oh my, wowsie! They were both full of yarn. Oh my gosh, I'll be busy all year!! hahaha.
Later, Kevin and one of his friends came by to visit. He brought me a little stuffed dog who was holding a stocking with a gift card to Michaels craft store. Yup, he spoils me too.
Just before the boys were leaving, Deanne, Eddie and Jasmine showed up bearing more gifts. We put on the Christmas music station on the TV and had ourselves a wonderful visit. The gifts were put, unopened, near the tree with all the others. You know folks, somewhere, somehow, I did something right because I have been blessed with an awesome family and so many wonderful friends.
Much later, when all was quiet and most folks were sound asleep, my dear friend Santa Claus stopped by. The reindeer were tucked between the house and the shed. We gave them a drink and fed them all sliced apples and carrots.
Then Santa and I sat down for a wicked nice visit, while we drank hot apple cider and chatted about all sorts of things. Pretty soon, though, it was time for him and the reindeer to be going on their way again. They still had a lot of places to go before the sun came up.
I dug into my archives for one of my favorite photos of me and Santa.
On this happy note, I'll take my leave. Pogo and I have lots of presents to open. Woo Hoo! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a Blessed and Merry Christmas.
Hugs, Edna B.
