Merry Christmas Everyone! So the day has arrived, the rushing around, baking, cleaning, shopping and wrapping is over and done with for another year. Now to enjoy family and friends, a good meal or two and be thankful. We'll head in to Mom & Dad's later- Christmas breakfast and then back for Christmas supper. Look forward to seeing the youngest generation of our family all excited about their visit from Santa. Growing up, Christmas was always a day spent with family. I would make the 5:30 am call to Grandmother and Grandfather R, to come watch us open our gifts- she of course was sitting next to the phone, impatiently waiting for that call. One year in my excitement I dialed the wrong number and got someone who wasn't too happy to be woken up.
24 December1979:Very mild.. I drove to town, stopped to tea with the girls. Bob,Bobbie & Mike came down later. Had a nice Christmas Eve with our family.
25th December 1979: Lots of nice presents. Spent the night at Bobbie & Bettie's. Bob, Mike and Bobbie came to MC for most of the day. When they came home we had Christmas dinner. After dinner Bob & I came hope. Real nasty storm, high winds, heavy rains, lightening. Very mild and warm. I am very tired tonight. Had a real nice Christmas.
Enjoy your day!
