Christmas Eve ~

Such a busy day trying to get ready for a get-togehter this evening and getting everything done for tomorrow.  My gathering will be small, but it will be with family.  I've made my potatoes and crab dip.  Got out the Christmas dishes and ironed the napkins.  Placemats?  Well, I've lost the linen placemats I use every year on Christmas day.  How did that happen?  I've wasted too much time trying to find them so I give up.  The silver still needs polishing.  I need to sweep & dust.  And the list goes on and on.  I'm sure in the end it will all be fine.

My older brother and me, I'm guessing in 1953.

If you notice the balls on the Christmas tree, this had to be taken the same place as my picture, the same year.  That is my DSO and his sister.  What a hoot :)

I wish my dear blog friends the merriest Christmas ever.  Thank you for visiting my blog, leaving comments and warming my heart.
Merry Christmas hugs :)
