I want to wish everyone a Joyous Holiday and a New Year filled will harmony and love. For those whom celebrate differently or not at all. I wish you contentment and good health in the coming year. Thank you for putting up with our beliefs or the strangeness of us bringing trees into our homes and decorating them. It takes all of us to make the World what it is today. My wish is to grow and learn more of others and their cultures. I have been preparing everything I can that can be prepared ahead of time. I'm so looking forward to my middle son and his family arriving from Japan to be back in the states once again. This time for good. I haven't seen my grandkids for over 1- 1\2 years. Two of my three sons will be with us during the holidays. One is going to be in Chicago with his girlfriends family. No snow, but I guess we need to share our winter with the Southwest this year. Thirty inches of snow fell this week. Wow!
Anyone up to Skiing? I didn't think so. Stay safe, and enjoy your time with family and friends. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

Thanks Sheryl. I hope that you have the same! I know in my home we do the holiday celebration. I Have wrapped untill I can't wrap anymore so the last few things for the bbay will go unwrapped under the tree. At 2 I doubt very much she will understand it all. I am now starting the Holiday eve bulidathon lol. I had to start early because I know how slow I am now with my fingers not working so well. I have her Kitchen about 1/4 built. I best get a move on eh!

Well you have a great Holiday and enjoy the time with your family.

Sheryl, thanks for the holiday message. I'm happy for you that you will be surrounded by your loved ones. I will also have my family of three children and their families here to share our joy.
Don't know about the rest of you, but I simply could not fact the prospect of wrapping all those gifts, so I went to our local dollar store and loaded up on bags and tissue paper. Not quite the same as ripping off paper and piling it in the middle of the room, but a lot easier on my back and fingers. :)
Ahh, skiing. Now that I do miss. My husband, of 33 years, and I started our relationship by taking skiing lessons together. By the sixth week, we skipped the lesson and went to the city to pick out wedding rings. We were avid skiers for almost 10 years before things with my health went heywire. So now they are just fond memories.
My wish for everyone this next year is happiness and better health!

Hi Sheryl,
What a wonderful message in your thread... so thoughtful!
I am so happy for you and yours and wish you the happiest times together, especially during this special holiday season.

Whirlway, I also enjoyed reading your message!

My hubby and I are spending this eve and tomorrow alone. However, we're okay with that... first time ever for either of us... ever! I baked 2 pies yesterday and will be having lasagna tomorrow.

I have news I'm not sure I shared with all of you yet... we have plans to move back where (most) of our kids, grands and great-grands live. This decision came with careful consideration.We love our home and where we now live... however, there are a plethora of incentives... waiting for us. So my 80 year-old mother will be able to continue to live in her home of 50+ years, hubby and I will be living with her to help her with her needs... plus, she will no longer be alone. She is so thrilled about all of this, as are our children and grands! We haven't really put all of this in motion, but will begin after the start of the New Year... first comes the selling of our place.

I wish all of you a very special and happy holiday season.

Special Hugs to all,
Susie

Hi Susie,

Wow! That is big news! So where exactly is it that you will be moving? I hope your house sells quickly and that the whole move goes smoothly for you!

Warm wishes and happy holidays!

Hi Heidi,

Thank you... We are moving back to our home town, which will mean we will still be in Montana.
Oh yes...I'm with you...I hope our home sells quickly also, yet I'll need alot of lead time to get everything packed! :blink: lol I know of several great friends here who would help with the packing... yet, I would be "sorting 'n throwing". My hubby won't even be able to help, except with the packing of "his stuff"! :rolleyes: lol
I have more to share, but I'll start another thread!

Hugs, Susie
