Christmas Eve

I was slow getting around this morning. Since it was almost 11 am we decided not to go to Gulf Shores. Instead we just ended up going Dollar Tree, Wal-mart and the local grocery store. I needed to get stuff to cook tomorrow. Hubby is feeling better and so I decided to cook a Christmas meal and have invited the Rver’s and 2 couples from church who will not be visiting family.

We went out for a late afternoon meal to the Chinese Buffet. Then it was home to put away grocery’s and start getting things ready.

I fixed from scratch and baked 2 pumpkin pies, i made a banana pie and a cheese cake for dessert tomorrow. I then made a fruit salad with pineapple, cool whip and lime jell-o topped with cherries, then i made a over-night salad which consist of lettuce, onion, cauliflower, frozen peas, cheese & bacon. It sits over night and then you fix a dressing to go on it before your ready to serve. We love it and it normally goes over well at potlucks.

After all my cooking it was time to relax and enjoy some quite time with my hubby.

Hope you all have been good and Santa leaves you something special.

Merry Christmas

Happy Birthday Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday. She is no longer living with us. God called her home. I have peace knowing she isn’t suffering anymore. My mom suffered many years with pain.

Mom is now in heaven with her mother/father/sister’s and especially with her baby boy Stephen whom she mourned for years. I’m still grateful that I didn’t have to watch my mother in her final days of pain and suffering. I had spoken with my mom on the phone weeks before she passed and we said our good byes then. I have peace knowing she knew i loved her and that she loved me. Our hearts ache with missing her and mom will always be in our hearts. I know that she has no more suffering and no more pain as God promises. Mom only has tears of joy now and for that i am thankful.

Mom we miss you and love you … Happy Birthday
