Catch up Time!

First off, I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas. I will catch you all up on ours in a little bit.

The broken rib is doing pretty good. Still a lot of pain, especially when I cough, sneeze, hiccup, move, get the picture.

Do you know that it is impossible to shave your legs with a broken rib. Yeah, I look like a cave woman from the thigh down. I think I may have to bribe Not a Grampy to shave them for me. Of course, his payment will have to wait until my rib is healed.

On to happier things, Christmas.

Not a Grampy was the hero of the day! We had 18 people over for Christmas dinner. A 15# Standing Rib Roast with all the fixins. Plus we rented another table and chairs so everyone would have a place to sit. He was able to get it all out, almost on time, and get everything cleaned up without loosing his cool! Which if you know my hubby and his family...(we don't refer to ourselves as the Looney Family for no reason) is a miracle in itself. Just goes to show that Christmas is the season of miracles. That and Not a Grampy's penchant for having everything scheduled down to the nano second!

Now on to the fun part! Pictures!!

Here is Gizmo wishing you all Merry Christmas!

Not A Grampy on Tuesday, peeling potatos for Christmas dinner.
Can you tell I have some good drugs??

This is GK #2, nope he really wasn't with us this Christmas. He was in Tennessee with his parents...looking for snow. (They didn't find any)

GK #1 opening his gifts. He spent Christmas with us!

Luckily we have a large yard. Our dinner guests were outside...

..and inside.
We had a wonderful time. Family, friends good food and good fun! Hope everyone had a blessed holiday!

Looks like you spent Christmas just the way it should be, surrounded by the love of all your lovely family. And as for you, if you can look THIS good with a broken rib, WOW!
