Christmas Fun 2018

 December has come and gone but the memories of fun with family and friends still linger. Mid Dec we went to eat at Red Robin in Wilsonville. Phil's birthday was coming up soon so we went to get his free birthday burger after church. I liked this display of cassette tapes on a wall there. Afterwards we went shopping a bit til we met up with the rest of the family at Sharis restaurant.
 We met up with Justin, Erin, and our adorable grandchildren for dessert! Megan arrived later as she was helping with an incident that wasn't!

 Owen and grandpa Phil and Melody....
 Owen and grandma....
 Owen "eating" his rocky road pie...mine was a coconut cream pie. Oh so delicious! 
 Pie, ice cream, soft drinks, hot tea, french fries so Melody could stick them in her cream pie! And Megan finally arrived and she got hot tea for sure...she was so chilly! Thankful she was able to help out a bit with her friends, high school friends from church and school......finally found their friend who hung himself in the park the night before!~!!!! Oh man!!! How sad!
 Sky was so pretty when we went to leave!
 On Tues I met up with my friend at Dennys for our Christmas dinner!

BFF Tamara and Becky.
 Our fiber optic Christmas tree. Reflection on the rose photo!
 Christmas morning was cinnamon rolls, I bought and froze when I was at shopping at a Christmas baazar! So delicious. A tradition we have had for years. Yummy!
 After opening gifts, this is the mess by my feet.  No mess from grandchildren so I decided to photograph my mess!
 An M&M mug that came with 6 little pkgs of candy inside the green box! Mug on right had my hot tea in it for lunch. Megan went to work at noon at Safeway then off at 5. Store was closed then,
 My gift I got from my friend Mama's Mercantile who lives many miles across the sea!!! I like her harris tweed items! Can't wait to make the beewax candles!! Bugs Bunny is helping display the items I got! 
 On a walk after we got the turkey in the oven, I stopped to take photo of our neighbor's yard. These styles of decor are popular now. 
 Phil's cutting up the turkey, stuffing already in the pan....why I don't make gravy is unknown! I forget til it's too late! I need to get better at that....make a list!!! Good grief,,,,,,hahaha!
 Christmas dinner!
 We have watched this movie every year til this year as our old tv wouldn't let the vhs player work. How annoying! But Megan thought it would be a fun idea to take a photo of it and Christmas Spririt essential oil that we have, from Young Living! 
 Later Megan and I watched "Call the Midwife" Christmas movie on tv. 
 One of our neighbors grow many plants in spring and summer and make wreaths. Here's some on the side of the house! So pretty! I like the one with the purple balls on it! Maybe this year I'll get one for our house. They make bigger ones as well!
 Cute items on the mirror shelf by the tree! I kept the fall birds on there as they are so cute!
 The first Sat of Jan. Phil and I went to see a movie....."Mary Poppins Returns". I stopped and got a photo of rear of this pickup! I love these words. I sent them to my girlfriend, Beth, who's healing from cancer! Good encouragement!
 Afterwards we went to Slicks Big Time BBQ to use a gift card! Phil got ribs, which are his favorite. 
Mine was brisket....All the food was good! All the meat is cooked on Traeger bbq grills.
It was fun to be out together on a weekend, especially a Sat. He usually works all of them in Dec. 
Over this past weekend we were to get some snow. We had a minor covering on Sat. a.m. but then it was gone. It got cold but nothing happened. Sunday and Monday it was cold, windy and raining hard. Monday afternoon I didn't feel good, my stomach hurt. By the time I left work, I was sooooo....cooooolllllldddddd!!!! Had a blanket on my lap at dinner! Stayed home from work on Tues, as I had no energy and my stomach bothered me some but I did get better. Went to work today. A bit tired but did well! Went through the car wash after work as my car was dirty! Rain all week and warmer, mid 40s, not freezing nights. Dentist appt on Friday to get my temp crown done and then a few weeks later all that finally done! I think I need another tooth fixed as well. Will see what he says at this appt. Sigh! 
Take care my friends. Be safe, as I know there's alot of snow and ice still around since it's still winter here in the USA and Canada.  God bless you all!

I had a great time reading about your Christmas Becky. So many fun things in December. It’s actually kind of refreshing to read about them all on in February. Great to remember the good times. Take care and stay warm. I’m glad you’re feeling better. We have more snow coming tonight. Blessings, Betsy
