The Beauty Around Us

Christmas 2010

Bob and I had a quiet, restful Christmas Eve, just the two of us. We ate an early dinner at Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut was a good choice, as it was offering its all-you-can eat buffet all day Christmas Eve. We didn’t know this was the case when we decided to eat there. In the evening we watched a couple movies, and around 11:00 PM we opened our Christmas gifts. This was the first year that we opened our Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve. We were able to see what we got each other for Christmas and dream about our gifts all night long 🙂 Bob is happy with the Keurig Coffee Maker, a tool set, and a Steelers shirt and sleep pants that I gave him for Christmas. I’m happy with the gifts that Bob gave me too — a Kindle! and a gift card to purchase e-books!

Bob and I celebrated Christmas with my brother and his family at their home on Christmas Day. We celebrated Christmas with my stepdaughter, Stacey, and her fiance Mike at our house the day after Christmas. Our Christmas weekend was wonderful, and I hope the same of yours.

    Sounds like a perfect Christmas, Linda. I'm sure you will love the Kindle… One of my sons gave his daughter one for Christmas. I will give her a gift card to Amazon…We had a great Christmas –even though my sons couldn't get here.. I loved having a White Christmas though.. That was a first for us in a very long time.Happy New Year.Hugs,Betsy

    I love doing photo collages ~ you can cover a lot of ground by putting them onto one page. Happy Holidays!

    We opened our gifts Christmas Eve morning as both Laura and Frankie had to work Christmas Day. Then, while they worked I cooked Christmas dinner and we stuffed ourselves after they got home from work. Laura decided to sofa surf here rather than go back to her apartment, supposedly because of the storm moving in but I think it had more to do with raiding the fridge all night long! College kids!

    It sounds like the 2 of you had a perfect Christmas. Enjoy your Kindle. My DIL got a new one, so I am set to inherit the old one.

    Sounds like your Christmas was really fabulous! I have to say I am a bit jealous since I would LOVE a Kindle! I read somuch and though I love our library, this has been on my own personal list since it came out!(Doing a little catch up here since I haven't had much computer time since well before Christmas.)

    I LOVE your photo collage. I have just learned the steps to making one of these in PSP. The thing is that I have had PSP for years. Better late than never, I always say…haa. Happy New Year. Gerry

    Linda,we had a wonderful time on Christmas eve talking with our children and grandchildren in Sweden via Skype.We open our presents always on Christmas Eve. My husband and I enjoyed our smoked salmon dinner with a nice rose wine. I lit the candles on our tree and we listened to wonderful music. A very quiet but beautiful Christmas! We got married on Christmas day and celebrate this day in very different way.Happy New Year,Gisela.
