It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

The day after Thanksgiving we had family pictures taken.  We used one with Wayne and I for our cards, but above is one of just the grand kids.  I've spent the past two weeks decorating for Christmas.  It's nice being retired and having time to do it the way I want.  I don't know how I ever had time to work.  After decorating I had the Fancy Aunt Lunch this past Sunday.  My sisters, sister in laws, daughter and nieces celebrate birthdays, usually combining two or three at a time.  This time it was for my s.i.l. Didi, and two of my sisters who have birthdays this week.

I've ordered some Christmas presents on-line, half which have not come yet.  The seven older grand kids want gift cards.  I hate not buying presents for them, so I got the gift cards and a gift for each to open.  I had fun buying toys for the two babies.  Yesterday I went to the post office to mail our cards, to Shop n Save to buy gift cards, to Old Navy to return a sweater, to Pet Smart, Hobby Lobby and Abercrombie & Fitch to buy gift cards.  Then I went by Meramec to register Wayne for a class this spring and visit my old office.  I was tired by the time I got home, but glad I got so much done. 

Here are some pictures of our house and the luncheon:
