I called AAA Auto and they came out and replaced the battery in our, dead as a doorknob, van that hasn't been running for a few weeks now. AAA was so fantastic, for $108., they cleaned and changed all the connectors and tested the alternator and a few other things, then installed a six year battery with warranty. We were good to go again! It is nice to know I have my car back and won't have to rely so much on the sweet generosity of other people. Although I am very grateful that so many people offerered or took me here, there and everywhere! My sweet hubby took my car and had it detailed; it smells and looks so clean and pretty now...thanks Dennis! :)
I am so grateful my Mom does the big Christmas dinner on Christmas day and I made sure and told her how grateful I am today too, that I cook the Thanksgiving dinner and she cooks the huge Christmas dinner. Otherwise, I would be a dead duck cause I still have to cook a huge Lasauna dinner with all kinds of party food for the kids and the folks on my hubby's side of the family for Christmas Eve.
My pregnant and expecting DIL, Renee has been sick with a cold or flu bug. They really aren't sure which, so Kevin asked us to watch little Ben, our Grandbaby and we had an awesome time with him for thirteen hours on Sunday. The little tyke was so cute and we got such a kick out of him dancing to a new Christmas Moose we bought at Cracker Barrel, that plays a little Christmas jingle when you squeeze his antlers adorned with bells. lol Isn't it darling how a child is born with the instinct to dance, noone has to teach him that, it is as if he already has the joy of the holy spirit in him! What a joyful blessing!
It has been so much fun meeting and getting to know so many wonderful and new blogging friends. Everytime I go out to the mailbox and find sweet little packages or Christmas cards, it is such a blessing. It just makes my heart jump for joy and really, it means the world to me! I am one of those people that just love cards, and pictures, and I appreciate your sentiments so much. I just want to thank Carmen, for the beautiful stationery, Pea, for the lovely teapot, Jen for the sweet calendar; the rest of you for the beautiful Christmas cards. Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness. Yours is on the way!
