Christmas Supper and a Movie



We had a light dusting of snow on the ground Christmas morning. Enough that I decided to get out my "Snowflakes" dishes for our little Christmas Day evening supper.


We didn't have a big Christmas this year because our children were with their in-laws this year for the holidays! I am so glad they got to be with them all! And so we didn't have a major Christmas lunch. So we decided to put together a little supper for my sister and her husband and include a favorite friend to all of us, Ms. Pearl! She is a delightful lady and we love her and love being around her!

Later, after our little supper, we went to the movies to see "The Blind Side" and the theater was packed! Enjoyed the movie and enjoyed our night out on the town!

I put my snowflake dishes out today and I will be seeing "The Blind Side" tomorrow afternoon. Sounds like we are both having great weekends! From one Nonny to another!

I'm glad you had a good Christmas. To me, it's a little difficult to adjust to the holiday schedule that being married brings. It's just so nice being with your own family. But with the blessing of a husband comes some changes too, huh?! Your table looked delightful!!

You always set the most beautiful table!! I love hearing what y'all do on the holidays... it's always so different from what we do!

I knew you'd love the movie!!

Just stopping by via your daughter's blog, hope you don't mind.

We too saw The Blind Side this Christmas and love love loved it! I left the theater with such a smile on my face.

I'm sorry you didn't get to spend Christmas with your children. It's hard when they get older and have lives of their own isn't it!? Mine are 21 and 24, not married yet, but don't always make it home when I'd like. I was lucky this year though and both were home for the holidays.

Take care and Happy New Year!

Hi Mrs Judy!
I hope you dont mind but I just wanted to come by and tell you thank you! Thank you for raising such a sweet daughter like Kelly. You and her both have touched my heart in so many ways. I have laughed and cried and rejoiced with all of you. I have watched Kelly long for that sweet baby to then see her glow with pride. What a ride it has been! What a blessing it has been! I know that the Lord has done some great things through your dear family and I just wanted to thank you for sharing it with me.
I read Kelly's new post and know just what she is feeling. I know my blog is on a much smaller scale than hers but I feel the stress as well. I decided to blog a bit less and spend more time with my family. Maddy told me just this morning how good it was to just play with me. I felt so bad that she was feeling second. Im not saying that blogging is a bad thing by no means but like anything, it can turn into an idol and I was not going to allow it for one more day. Thank you for reading this extra long comment ((hugs))my heart feels so much better...smiles~ Susie
