son-in-law, son, and hubs on Christmas Eve
...am I the only one who remembers the Mackenzie brothers from SCTV? I swear that is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this picture...
There really isn't much going on here after all the hustle and bustle of last week. We still have all our decorations up and will until Epiphany on January 6th. We had Christmas eve at our house this year, as is the tradition I always had with my family. It's so nice to carry that memory forward with my own family and now theirs. We were also joined by my daughters' in-laws this year, a very interesting and thoughtful couple.
Of course there were lots of goodies to be had, both present wise and food wise, and we are indeed blessed to be in this place at this time with the people we love so much.
On Friday I begin my "low-iodine-pre-radiation-diet" and I could not be more excited (sarcasm). The diet is very limited, and I mean very. There is absolutely no dairy allowed which for me, a child of the 50's, is unheard of! Nothing with salt is allowed either which means no processed foods period. Not that I eat a lot of processed foods but the amount of foods that have salt in them is staggering and none of them are allowed. I will be going to Starbucks tomorrow for a giant coffee/mocha WITH whip, and I will be eating the last of the Christmas cookies! Cranky. It's my word for January!
I've been strolling through blog land the last few day and noticed that many people are choosing a word for the year. It is my understanding that the word is in place of resolutions and all the other broken promises of a new year. This is a word to live by, to improve ones self, a positive. I've been thinking of a word that I would like to use and have two that keep coming to mind. I will let you know, on New Years Day just what I have chosen. This year I tried to live my life with 'intent,' not realizing that I had chosen a 'word.' Oh my!
Are you a resolution type person, an intentional word, all or nothing? And do you have New Year's Eve plans?
