Last summer when we were together for July 4th we had a snap shot taken of everyone with a cigar either in their mouth or in hand. SARAH got to choose the "theme' for the Christmas picture and she chose a " CRAZY CHRISTMAS SWEATER " group snap shot. Shortly after dinner [ delicious beyond description ], we all scattered in various directions ....upstairs, downstairs, in the bathroom, etc. to get our duds on. Most of us had no idea what anyone else had come up with. The results can be seen above. Mike had a bit of trouble getting the timer to work on the camera, so Jax was getting a little less than happy, but it all worked out anyway. Good idea Sarah ! Boy was it HOT though. We could hardly wait to get into something cooler for the opening of the gifts, which by the way took h-o-u-r-s.
MJ had been off 12/20 through yesterday 12/29 in order to use or lose his paid days off. It was a nice break for both of us. He's back at it today, then will have New Year's Day off. He is busy at home at times with the wrapping up of the financial matters of St. Philip's Episcopal Church before handing over the books to the next [ and past ] treasurer Nancy Bryant. This will be a relief to Mike , it is not something that he has enjoyed doing but rather something he did to help out St. Philip's.
Jaxson was a HOOT & A HOLLER for Christmas. He had such a l--o--n--g day but was wonderful all day long. So much fun to watch this year at 21 months compared to a year ago. Can't even imagine next Christmas. Have I mentioned that I adore that child ?
This is all for now, I needs must get a hoppin' lest this day gets away from me like Christmas 2013 did ! And so it goes .......
KEEP A SONG
YOUR HEART !
