Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone,

From the Hurles’ family to yours…we wish you a Merry Christmas and hope Santa brings you everything you want.  It was so easy for me to tell Santa what I wanted.  The last two years I have asked for one thing….to wake up each morning and love those around me.  Each day is a blessing and I will never take that for granted. 

Today in Houston it is cool and wet.  A perfect day to light the fireplace and enjoy the family.  Lani and I plan on nesting in the kitchen today and cooking Christmas Eve dinner.  The family should be over tonight to celebrate the joy of giving on Christ’s birthday.  Turkey, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, gibblet gravy and of course an assortment of desserts will be on the menu.  The Honey Baked ham is always a added treat.  The Honey Baked Ham Store always takes that burden off the cook.  Thank you!  My sis-in-law Libby is fixing the mashed potatoes and deviled eggs.  When she sets the plates of eggs down the girls just move out of the way…it’s a major stampede.  We three women have come to the decision that we could set the plates outside and we could clear the house out for a little while. 

Bill has done it again.  Being the wonderful husband that he is….he asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  And you women know what I’m getting at!  Trying to play it safe, I just said “how about clothes”.  Which I really don’t need but figured it was the safest items to let him pick out.  Always amazed and surprised at men’s taste …..I am just holding my breath until Christmas morning.  Oh God,  please let it be something normal. (One year it was PJ’s with penguins on them..with built-in feet, flannel, hoodie, and, and, and…the most unusual color I’ve ever seen).  And of course I always tell him to keep the receipts.  

So have a great weekend and I’ll send the update on Monday.  The neighbors will know how the gift thing works out.  Bill might be duct taped to the mailbox for pick-up on Monday.

Hugs to you all,
