We had such a GOOD week-end. Jammed packed for sure, but so good. On Friday night we had dinner with some old friends, and visited and chatted the evening away. It was wonderful. On Sat. we slept in (just a little bit, I never last very long, haha) and after breakfast we left and went to the fabric store. Yes, the fabric store, AND! it was hubby's idea. I promise it was! He decided he wants me to make one of "those" blankets (as he calls them) for his dad for Christmas. So we picked out his favorite football team (Raiders ~ REALLY? haha) fabric, and I think it will be really nice in blacks and grays. After that we went to our favorite restaurant and had lunch. We hadn't been there in many weeks, and it was just as good as we remembered. After lunch we decided to see the movie Lincoln. It was REALLY good, and I do recommend it to anyone looking for a good movie. I love Sally Field and she was excellent in it, but then, when isn't she? After the movie we headed over to our oldest son's house to pick up Jeffie who was to spend the night with us as he was going to Capri's birthday party the next day. They were just about to decorate their Christmas tree, so we sat down and enjoyed them all doing just that. I just sooo enjoyed watching the little ones with their excitement and enthusiasm. It was DEFINITELY what was missing when we put up ours. ; ) When they were finally done, we loaded up Jeffie and headed for home. But we decided to stop and get his hair cut first. Grandma just has a "THING" for neatly trimmed hair, haha. Anyway, then we decided to have dinner and tried out a new place (for us anyway) that they just opened up called, Lazy Dog. Jeffie delighted in the name, and we all enjoyed ourselves and the food was good. When we finally got home, Jeffie put on his new Christmas jammies, and posed for a couple of pics for me in front of the tree. I was REALLY pleased with the way they fit him. Just big enough to be super comfy, and plenty of room for some shrinkage which I know will happen. We then made bowls of ice cream and sat down to watch Elf on TV. We all enjoyed it. Here are some cute pics of Jeffie.

Today I got my nails done (in a snazzy Christmas way!) and then had lunch with my girlfriend and exchanged our gifts. We have been friends for 49 years! Is that even possible? But that is what it has been, and how I thank God for her too. She gets me like no other. Tomorrow I will pick up mom and we will get our hair done and we will be all set for a while. Just a few more things to do and maybe mom and I will do a little baking. Hope all of you have a wonderful week!
