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 family you have--such cute grandchildren.

I'm sorry about your father's situation. We had a headstrong MIL who wouldn't let us help her make good decisions. It's frustrating and sad, but there isn't much you can do for those loved ones until and unless they get so bad that they are incapable of making decisions. By that time, they've made some horrible financial mistakes that you are helpless to avoid. My husband felt terribly conflicted and troubled, but there was nothing he could have done short of taking his mother to court to declare her incompetent. Not wanting to do that, his hands were tied. I hope you aren't suffering the same angst, because you know this is out of your hands.

Lovely home. (((hugs)))
