    Christmas eve

    Good morning all. It is now 7 am here in Sydney a cloudy but warm morning with some drizzle. Today I will be cooking the turkey and roast vegetables for our family Christmas lunch tomorrow. My parents, an elderly uncle, our son, granddaughter, daughter-in-law as well as her parents will be joining us.

    I want to wish every member of the board a happy Christmas and all the best for 2015. Thank you for all the inspiration that is provided each and every day when I come in here and see all the lovely work that is a feast for my eyes.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    , And a good Morning to you also. It is 5:32 AM here in St. Paul, Minnesota - warm out - +37, no snow, wet, humid and kinda foggy. But it is still Christmas Eve Day. I am going to my sister in law's this afternoon and then come home, hoping it didn't snow and then start in for tomorrow when the kids come over and then on Saturday I have my sibs and their families coming over. Some of the neighbors will be dropping over, also.

    Good day for a Christmas, eh?

    Good morning. It's 72 degrees and humid outside. We are expecting thunderstorms this PM. We are having burgers and sweet potato fries for dinner and then will attend a children's program at church. Tomorrow, we'll open presents and then have breakfast (overnight French toast) followed by opening presents. The PM will be dinner with au gratin potatoes, Honey Baked Ham, peas with pearl onions, two pies. Then I get to scurry around and make potato and taco soups for friends who are invited to come visit on Boxing Day. It's a busy time, but I"m loving it!

    Merry Christmas and may the day be peaceful!

    Happy holidays and merry Christmas to all from Southern California. It's been warm here, close to 80 degrees yesterday. Colder at night though. Will be spending the day with hubby's family. I will miss my grown kids but it will be a good day anyway. Today I plan to go walking on the beach since it is my favorite place.

    Happy Christmas Eve from SE Washington, where Santa may need a boat to deliver his goodies tonight! Unusual for us to have a real rain - usually just overcast and drizzly here, though usually colder in December. Will be in the 40's today. I'm still (almost, really!) frantically working on a quilt for my son and his girlfriend. I won't get it done today, though, no matter how hard I work, so maybe I just ought to finish Christmas shopping instead!

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to ALL!

    Merry Christmas from warm (40's tonight), rainy New Hampshire. For Christmas Day...rain and in the high 50's to low 60's. Not bad for late December in New England. Glad it isn't a white Christmas (bah humbug!)...

    Have a wonderful holiday everyone!

    Merry Christmas to all from south west FL --Bonita Springs -where we just got a rain shower after dinner.

    Christmas Day will be spent differently this yr as we are driving to Ocala Fl to the hospital since my only brother 62 yrs had a heart attack 12 days ago. He can not eat/drink due to throat issue but I am bringing very special sweets for the other 4 of us to have with coffee in his room since he was moved from ICU. Over 4 hr drive but very necessary to me as otherwise it was not a stressful season --all stress due to this attack because the hospital didn't know he had family and didn't call my sil --She kept phoning his cell and eventually the ICU nurse answered at 1 in morning . He is surviving so that is all we wanted for Christmas .
    Oh and now I don't have to cook and have them here so maybe I saved some calories.

    It is Christmas morning here in Waddell, Az and it is 41 degrees. Spent a wonderful Christmas Eve with 2 granddaughters, their husbands, and 4 great-grandchildren - including 1 year old twins! What a joy to see their faces as they learned all about Christmas trees and presents. Have a blessed day. Going to see Unbroken this afternoon - maybe eat out too!
