Happy Birthday Dad

Our father was born on Christmas Eve and his Mom, my grandmother made sure his birthday was celebrated each year in spite of it also being Christmas Eve.  Daddy died twelve years ago in December and his presence is never more missed than on Christmas Eve.  Happy Birthday Dad!


It’s been a quiet day of preparation around here—we’ve talked to family back in Montana and helped with the preparations for our Christmas Eve celebration.  I made one last minute run to Wal Mart and it wasn’t too bad—stepped right up to a check-out counter! 

Tonight we had our progressive dinner—appetizers at Niki and Eric’s, salads at Mom and Chuck’s, main course at Danny and Ann’s and finally dessert at Ross and Vicky’s.  When all the family lives as close as this one, a progressive dinner works well!  This year we played the dirty Santa/Chinese gift exchange game with our food type gifts.  Mom and Chuck’s baskets of goodies were very popular as was the tin of homemade turtles I provided.  The game provided lots of laughter and joking—it was fun. 

We want to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
