My family had a wonderful Christmas, we gathered at my daughter's home.  We had so much wonderful food that every body made and brought for dinner.  It was wonderful seeing all the family together, and my three granddaughter's, who are so busy with their own lives. Jenny is a high school English teacher, Michelle has a PH.d in Psychology and is working at a hospital, and Jamie works for a company that makes sporting equipment, and their ski boards are going to be at Soshi for the Winter Olympics.  I embroidered silk ribbon on berets and they loved them, which made me happy.  The weather was about 85 deg's so we spent a lot of time outdoors where the great granddaughter's were riding their new toys.  Took a lot of pictures and had a great Christmas.  I hope everyone was as lucky as I was to enjoy their day with family.

I am wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, and all the best for a Blessed New Year 2014.  It is Christmas Eve, and I finished the last gift yesterday, for my neighbor Paulette who is an 82 year old on roller skates.  She puts me to shame she is always moving and doing something fantastic.  We have become very close since I moved in next door, and I love sharing all kinds of projects with her.  I made her a scissor fob, with silk ribbon.  For my oldest 3 Granddaughters I embroidered a wool beret with silk ribbon and each one done in different colors, they really came out nice.  My son will be here to stay over Christmas and will be visiting with his Dad's family this evening and tomorrow we get together at my Daughter's home for our Christmas celebration.  Everyone is cooking different dishes and cannot wait to sit down for dinner.   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Today is the Arts & Crafts group Christmas party and during the party we will be filling Santa's candy bags that will be handed out on Christmas morning by Mr & Mrs Santa to the residents of our Senior Citizen Mobile Home Park. Love the gathering and all the women are just wonderful and happy to help fill bags.  Then we will have the goodies every one is bringing.  I also have an update on all the pain I had for 4 months. I was diagnosed with Poly Myalgia Rheumatica which is an inflammation of the long muscles of the body and that is why there was so much pain.  Have been put on a huge dose of Prednisone and Methotrexate a chemo drug to help the inflammation.  Feel so much better and the pain is very minimal. So happy that the cause of all my pain has been discovered.
