It is a Merry Christmas!

Although Christmas is a little odd this year, it is still very joyful. Mikey is home and recuperating pretty well.  Everyday he is just a smidgen better.  I know he still has a lot of healing time in front of him, but it is a miracle that he is here and wonderful that the doctor was able to repair his neck. 

So, it really doesn't matter if there are a few less presents under the tree or that I didn't get a chance to make cookies, homemade caramel corn or that I bought our dessert for dinner tonight.  All that matters is having my family healthy and together (except Krissy, Jay and the kids are with Jay's family this year, which is only fair). 

On the menu today is BW's Famous Apple Pancakes, Cheesy Scrambled Eggs and Bacon for breakfast.  Dinner is a beef tenderloin, twice baked potatoes, asparagus and Liz's mac & cheese.  (With cheese cake for of Mikey's favorite desserts.)

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and take the time to look around and remember all your blessings.  I know I will.


  1. Boy, am I glad to read that Mikey is home and recovering where his loving mother can keep an eye on him.

    And the mother is quite an amazing woman to come up with all that good food for Christmas considering the week she's just been through.

    My positive thoughts continue across Lake Michigan through the rain, sleet, ice and snow all the way to your house.


  2. You have so been in my thoughts and happy to know Mikey is home and surrounded by family and love. Continued prayers will surround you in healing faith ... may you all be well and the New Year bring life's best. (((BIG HUGS)))

  3. I am happy to hear that things are looking up for your family! You had quite a feast to enjoy!
    You are blessed. Truly.

  4. I'm so glad Mikey is home. Sounds like a blessed Christmas! Accidents like this really put things in perspective, huh?!
