Merry Christmas!

I'm posting from my phone until I figure out why posting directly to LJ causes problems when using a keyboard (if you didn't see my prior post, it starts out fine, but then some letters don't show up when I depress the keys -- both at home and at work).

I hate typing on my phone, even though I have the iPhone 6 Plus.

Anyway...! Christmas!

Mike and I calculated that this is our 37th Christmas together!


Our Bichon Frise, Isabella, is five!

Joey is around eight!

We had Ethan Tuesday night through most of Christmas Eve, taking him back home in time to fall asleep so Santa could come! He's almost seven. Really!

Amanda and Brandon

Dylan received a small power wheels in Florida today. The kids are visiting Jeena's family this year.

Our granddaughter, Adelyn

We all celebrated this past Saturday since Shaun and Lance were obligated to their inlaws this year.

I served individual stuffed game hens on my mom's Christmas china.

Dad is not doing too good. He has gained 70 lbs. of water weight. He's in an assisted living facility raping him for what money is left and he will have to leave when he goes on Medicaid. But these are all his decisions. I've washed my hands. It's all very complicated and I'm not looking for advice. I don't mean to sound curt, truly, but I've run the gamut with him and have nothing left.

I hope your Christmas or Hanukkah was wonderful!

What a beautiful Christmas. I love the dinner table setting and I know you are thrilled to have a reason to use it. All the babies are adorable, both two and four legged :). You are so blessed.

I am glad you have come to terms with your dad and his choices. You are not being curt, only truthful and realistic. It sounds like he may have some congestive heart failure going on with the water weight? Sad he turns the help offered by his family away but it is his choice to make, good or bad.

Hi, Donna. Thank you! Yes, my father was diagnosed with CHF in 2013, Parkinson's in early 2011. He has osteoarthritis terribly, too.
