Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Are you all ready for Christmas? I don't get too crazy so Christmas for me is a peaceful time, I'm not by nature a material girl and gift giving/receiving is not high on my priority list. My youngest son and his family live in Newfoundland so it seems crazy to buy cheap crap here, pay shipping, to send said cheap crap there. I just email him some money and let them go crazy in the malls. My oldest son and his family live just a block from us and we do exchange gifts but small, preferably hand made, and we do not spend alot of money.

This Christmas is a little different because my sister and her family have come for a visit from Australia so we are all getting together for Christmas dinner, that's our present to each other, at last count there will be 28 of us around the table...perfect!

Christmas Eve will be with my in-laws and that to will be big affair, not sure how many will be in attendance but it will likely be 20 to can't get any better!

So what am I doing back? Well not blogging is killing me. I have pictures, stories, musings, crafts, cooking share and I can't keep it in any longer, so you will be hearing from me, not as often as I would like but I am back.
