Well for Christmas Eve, all of my family and Pete and I got together and went to Lubys for our Christmas Dinner because my Mom had asked me to try and keep the family together so I did it for her. I knew I couldn;t stand up and cool for 2 or 3 days with the shape my legs are in. Girl, I can't wait until Jan 4th gets here si I can have the surgery done because my legs are hurting me more and more every day.
It has rained here all day and I told my Husband that I wanted to stop by the Cemetary on the way home and see Mama and daddy. He wasn't thinking when he told me that it was raining so hard and why didn't I wait and go another time and I told him no that I was going. I just wanted to go tell them how much I loved them, and how I missed them, and I wished them a Merry Christmas too. I know they heard me and they knew I was there. Girl, I stood out there in that rain and it was pouring down and cold too and I will probably end up with bronchitus but I got to stop and talk to them.
Our Dinner was very nice too! I had Turkey and Dressing and the first bite I took, I told everybody it didn't taste like Mama's. They all grinned and they said no way. My Mother was the best cook. I would give anything to have a big pot of Red Beans and some Cornbread and some friend potatos that she cooked and some of her good ole iced tea. Anything she cooked, she made it taste so good.
Well I hope your day went by alright! You've been on my mind and so has your Daddy! Yell him I said hello and to take care of his self and you do the same thing okay?
Big Hugs to you from Texas!
