A Busy Day

Yesterday was a very busy, but fun day. Eric brought home this beautiful poinsettia for me on Friday (and I have placed it in a place Romeo cannot get to it, since he loves to eat things).

Every year we go to see the Trains at Northpark, so yesterday we spent the afternoon there. We saw San Francisco…

And then it was time to come home and get ready for company. Eric’s mom and sister and my parents came over for eggnog and homemade goodies.

I made fudge, chocolate gingerbread cookies and spiced nuts. Mmmm…

    So what’s the deal with trains at Christmas? I’ve never really known about this tradition, but they set up trains at the PA Convention Center for Christmas too. And so many people seem to have their trains around their trees. I’ve never seen it before. Is it because there are no boys in our family?

  13. Sorry to read about your job situation, I too am a firm believer in the adage one door closes another opens. Hang in there something much better will turn up. Your Christmas decorating looks wonderful, best wishes for the festive season.
