December 25, 2017

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.

Merry Christmas Edna and Pogo and Thank You Santa For Being Such An Awesome Friend To My Friend Miss Edna And Pogo!

I can tell that your Christmas was just awesome and thank you so much for my gift box and for Cisco's. He is still running around as jolly as he can be.

I am hoping that this comment will post and you can just click on me and it will take you to my new blog. That was hard to lose my blog but I will just start over and one good thing is that I did not lose all my photos and all my scrap pages were saved so I am blessed with that.

I got to get my butt into the kitchen and get that salad made. I am tired still. Santa and I had a nice visit at 1:30 this morning. Cisco even offered the reindeer some of his carrots!

Talk to you a little later on. Love, Beth

You must have been a very good girl this year to get so many awesome gifts. You can just tell how much your family and friends love you. Hope your holidays are just awesome for you. You deserve it. And have fun with those gift cards! I could do a whole lot of damage with a Michael's card.

Edna you are so blessed and very loved! Wow! Janet looks like a real live elf. Pogo having too much fun with all his treasures. I think of these sweet pups who once did not have the quality life they have today and I smile that they were given the love and family they deserve. I say this while Stella snuggles near me. I have my feet under the blankets and am using my heating pad keeping my cold feet warm. This bitter cold is for polar bears dang it!
I hope you enjoy a beautiful week and I know your Christmas was especially special. So much love.
