Project Life, week52-2016



Our grandkids Athena and Zander were all ready to be tucked into bed on Christmas Eve. Since Christmas was on a Sunday this year, we had only one service at church. I was one of the readers, and my prayers for the safe return of my voice worked! After the service we opened gifts and my Santa was very, very good to me. He gave me a Kitchenaid mixer! I have wanted one forever! I used it three times to help make dinner. I made a standing rib roast, and Dave’s brother Mark did the carving duties. Dave made popovers and it was delicious! I unpacked mama’s china and it made the meal even more special.


Right after dinner we learned that singer George Michael had died. This year has been just horrid for celebrity deaths. I know it’s because we’re getting older too, but still. It was quite a blow when Carrie Fisher died the next day. We have been huge fans ever since seeing the original Star Wars back in 1977 as newlyweds. Even sadder was when her mother died the very next day.


Athena and Zander didn’t get to come up till the next weekend, but like any good grandma would do, I fed them dinner and then filled them with ice cream!


Preston (in Miami) was rocking his Darth Vader pj’s while riding his 4-wheeler. Can’t wait to see him in a week!


New Year’s Eve was quiet and rainy. I saw in the new year with my kids, Dusty, and a glass of champagne.
