Good morning Ladies ! It seems really strange to say that it is January 1st . I want to wish you all a very happy new year for the 12 months ahead . The last 12 were pretty much dealing with and getting through a pandemic, As someone who is an optimist , I hope for a bright and happy 2022 for all of us.
In my last post December 18th we just had our gas stove installed . I have to say it was a great decision to go ahead with it! we were so used to gas , that we felt it was the right choice to go ahead with . On Sunday 19th it was the 4th Sunday of Advent. We had nice family time after church. The new work and school week came around quick but started to go by fast . The kids finished school on Wednesday for the Christmas season. On Thursday I had our work party that started at noon until 2pm. It was a fun time to mingle ! On the way home I did a little last minute shopping ( guilty!) In the early hours of Christmas eve morning , santa made an early visit to our home as is tradition in our half German household ! The kids stockings were filled and they also got some other wrapped gifts he dropped off! There was excitement for a while then we had a nice brunch. At about 3pm after packing up we made the 2 hour journey to the in-laws !
After a few stops we arrived at 5.40 pm in time for dinner. Unfortunately my one Brother -in-law and his wife and family had flu and could not make it . A few family gifts were exchanged that evening as well ! Christmas morning came and santa had showed up at Grandma’s house also !! What a guy ! We did get to see my other brother-in-law , his wife and their adorable 8 month old son also . After Christmas morning church we had a nice lunch and chatted for a few hours. In the evening we made the journey back home. We did bring back more than we came with ! Sunday was a nice day to relax. On Tuesday our youngest got his cast off after his shinbone fracture and they put him in a boot as the last part of his rehabilitation . He can now walk with the boot and take it off at night and have a proper shower or bath! He is doing so well! Also on Tuesday the older kids and their friend Maddi went to see Spiderman. Yesterday we went out for brunch to one of our favorite restaurants Perkins for a nice brunch treat! Then we made a nice dinner where the kids contributed to make. We made it to midnight by watching some old tv shows. I Am growing weary of the countdown tv specials with bands and individuals performing I do not even know ! Is anyone else on the same page with me ? !
