It has been a pretty good Christmas. Thursday we decided to exchange gifts and cook our Christmas meal, to leave Friday open for a St Nick pic-nic. So that's just what we did. I got the most beautiful 3 tier fountain for the yard, my new car stereo, 2 cement planters for the front porch, a co-co clock, a new mixer. Bill liked his Christmas lemon tree, and of course the Christmas cash. Says he's going to get a stereo just like mine for his truck.
We got up on Christmas Day, packed up the leftovers and hit the road for Flint Creek Park. We stopped by Lisa's on the way and visited with them and gave the kids their gifts.
The park is very nice and the lake is beautiful. The sun was shining brightly but it was COLD. We checked out the cabins and decided to try to get one for New Year's weekend.
Today we went over to my bestfriend's house and spent the afternoon. Yesterday was her 60th birthday and she was given an open house by her room mate. Lots of friends and food and laughter! It was a great time.

Last night was the office Christmas party. It was at Clint's "barn" up in Stockton. Again rain all the way up and back. I had never been up there but heard about how nice it is. This is no usual barn. It does house horses but it has a nice kitchen, living room and bathroom. The food was done by The Coachhouse. They do a wonderful Buttermilk Pie. We had planned on a hay ride for the kids but the rain changed that idea.
Yesterday morning we got up early and got on the road for Hattiesburg. It rained all the way up and back. DD's open house at her stained glass studio was yesterday, and as usual a fun trip. I sent most of the time looking through the glass picking out colors I can't find locally. She had the studio decorated pretty and lots of snacks. Had a fun time as always, and actually didn't spend too much!

Yesterday was finally Becky's shower. Talk about wait until the last minute! Baby is trying hard to get here early, if possible. She tired, and sore but looked great yesterday. The shower was at Christie's home--a beautiful place out in the country. I enjoyed seeing all "the girls". I remember them all as teenagers and here they all are with 2 or 3 kids! All grown-up. It was a beautiful afternoon and I really enjoyed it.
