The Holidays

My parents left yesterday at 6:30 a.m.  They were here for nine days and we had a great time.  This was the best Christmas I will ever was the first Christmas with my daughter and I got to share it with my parents.

Our daughter really took to her new grandparents...she is such a happy child and my parents just basked in her giggles and smiles.  Memories were created that I will have for a very long time.

We didn't do anything particularly special, other than go to a museum in Fort Worth and go to Chuck-E-Cheese as the granddaughter had asked her grandpa if he would bring her before they ever got here...and of course he said yes...

We had one day where it got into the 70s.  We had a cookout that hubby was dancing around enjoying himself...even said at one point that it felt like a party.  It was a party...a party of life...we had such a good day every day...but that day is one that I keep thinking was just great.

Now, daughter goes back to school tomorrow and I go back to work after being out for over a week.  It will be good for all of us to get back into a normal routine.

I did the Leslie Sansone 1 mile after breakfast...daughter joined felt good...and it was great to do it with to get to bed at a decent time to do it again tomorrow morning.

So, I am off now to iron for the week...file the nails...and other weekly grooming...hugs to you all...hope you first week of 2011 is a great one.
