I hope everyone had a great day full of love and family.  This was the first Christmas without my mom. I miss her so much.  My dad and I made our traditional family dinner.  My mom had made the XMAS pudding a while ago.  We heated it up, doused it with brandy and caught it on fire.  on Christmas Eve we had my husbands side of the family over-30 people.  Lots of fun and food.  This year has been challenging for my family.
The boys i watch wanted to make a necklace for their mom.  Here is photo of the first one.  They made several more, but I didn't have my camera.


  1. What a gorgeous necklace!! They did a fabulous job with it!! Your Mom might not have been with you to celebrate Christmas in person but she was definitely with you in spirit. I hope 2015 brings you so many blessings and endless happiness my friend!! Have a great weekend :)
