Happy 2015 to all!!!

 Yes, i know i am a day late.....I just got back home on New Year's eve.  The family time was wonderful, but it was a long time to be away.  Spending Christmas Eve and morning with a 2 and a 5 year old, is of course, the best.  They were so excited, both at receiving the gifts and watching 'grandma' open the special items they had made and selected for me.
We met up with the rest of the family, including my siblings and their children and grands for another celebration on Saturday.  There were 6 under 6....along with the teens , young adults, and 'us'.  The first Christmas without my mom....but there was little sadness. She was there, and we each had planned  a surprise for the others, that kept her with us. The biggest surprised from my niece...she was married in June and announced that she is expecting....twins :):)   Two new family members added to our future celebrations.  It was special and we will look back with smile and wonderful memories for a long time.
  To all of you, i want to say thank you, for your support during the tough times, and your continuous friendship.  I wish all of you a new year that is full of wonderful surprises, good health, memory making moments.....and very rosy cheeks!!!

  11. Happy New Year to you and Master, Abby! :)

    Sounds like you all had a wonderful time together. It must have been awfully fun celebrating Christmas with the two little ones. And how exciting that there will be two more to enjoy with in the future!

    I think that it is neat how you all planned surprises that kept your mom with you all. What a special thing! Welcome home! Many hugs,
