Thankful Thursday...My Cup Runneth Over

 

Christmas 2019 is over but my wish is that the spirit stays with us all for quite some time. 

 

I was with my family or at least part of them, and for that I am thankful. The weather was gorgeous, sunny and no need for sweaters, and it would not have been a family gathering without more food than we could ever eat. 

 

christmas 2019

 

My niece used Marco Polo so we got to see her 3 tykes trip over each other as they bounded down the stairs and headed for their stockings. My mini-me found her bicycle, then immediately noticed that someone had eaten the cookies and tipped over the mug that had held hot cocoa for Santa. 

 

I feel so very lucky to have my family, now closer than ever, good friends, good health (knock wood), and hope for an even better 2020. 

 

As for the day after Christmas shopping hoorah...I have no interest whatsoever. I am shopped out. (at least until next week!)

 

And now, I have two days to recover before the next family Christmas gathering!

We have a very simple holiday...Christmas Eve with the kids and grandbabies and nothing buy relaxation alone on Christmas Day. My sister is coming to spend a night or two today. I'm looking forward to some time with her!

Hi Kathy,
So glad you had a wonderful Christmas!  Nothing better than a house full of family and little ones on Christmas, is there?

Morning Kathy.

I, like you am shopped out.  It took all of 5 minutes to get the gift for this Christmas.  It was exhausting.
