Christmas Day is quite the opposite. We will have 30 guests ranging in age from 85 to 2. Oh what fun it is. . .
The cookies are ready. I had big plans this year including 3d cookies and some new and unusual designs, but I ran out of time. The family is happy with whatever I do so I stuck to some tried and true designs with just a few new ideas.
In light of recent events, I'm sure most of us are finding it easy to count our blessing this year. For me it is extremely easy. At this time last year:
- My great-niece Kaley (17) was unable to talk and every muscle and bone ached. Doctors were baffled. Finally, she was diagnosed with Lyme's disease and today she is healthy and looking forward to graduation from high school.
- Kaley's sister, Kendall (15), was diagnosed with a tumor on her pituitary gland. Today she is healthy.
- Kaley and Kendall's first cousin, Logan (15), was diagnosed with Hodkins Lymphoma. After 6 months of chemo, he has had two PET scans that show no signs of cancer.
A few of the Great nieces and nephews posed for a photo before eating their cookies.
Merry Christmas to all!
