The tween time…

daughter and MsTwas the time tween Christmas and New Years…

Our Christmas was a wonderful time as we were able to celebrate it in our house for one last time with our family.  My daughter was home for college and will return back to school tomorrow.  My son, his wife, and the grandson made it to our house as well. So with a houseful weson celebrated Christmas together.

With the usual fanfare of the gift exchange our Christmas was off to a good start and with the upcoming Christmas dinner it could only get better… and it did. Boy was dinner grand…

It has been enjoyable these last few days having the kids in town. My son and his family have returned home and with the daughter leaving xmas settingtomorrow we have decided to knock something off the bucket list before she leaves (so she can experience it as well).

So tonight we are all heading over to some friends house who are going to teach us how to make tamales. Tamales aregson often made around Christmas time by Mexican families to give as Christmas gifts and they often save some for good luck when ringing in the new year’s.

Then with only NINE! more Monday’s left before we retire we had better get busy with finding us a motorhome. We are going to need all the luck we can get so I had better eat an extra dozen tamales.

Guess who wants candy…


  1. Sounds like yo0u had a great Christmas. Have fun with those tamales and here's hoping that they bring you all the luck in the world!

  2. Yum, I love tamales :) Good luck with the search, it's all happening!

  3. Come on down to the Tampa Rv supershow! If you can't find anything there, try Lazy Days Rv, which is close by!

  4. Looks like a great time was had by all. The little boy is adorable. Stay safe. Happy New Year.

  5. Woo Hoo... You're almost there! Get that motorhome!

  6. Looking forward to see what you buy. You've done so much great research, now you have to make the decision. I hope the right one is out there with your name written across it!

    My new years wish for you is to find the perfect rig.
