its been so long since i have posted that now the feelings and details of our holidays are old news and there's too much to explain to update everyone. so i will condense and highlight the generalities in pictures and move onto my next post...K? K.
we had a blizzard...the 1st white Christmas in years!
Diane tried to shovel but it kept coming down!
our humble tree..
picture of our home BEFORE the 14 peeps and 3 dogs arrive! [that green recliner on the right is my temporary bed cuz i can't sleep laying flat yet.. so i have been sleeping with the Christmas tree lights on at night which has been very warm and endearing to me]
my sister Denise who lives here in Omaha, helped Diane prepare food due to my gimpy arm...
the gang's all here... and a good time was had by all!
Julian had a blast!
he received a real guitar! [watch out tom petty]
me conked out with my oldest son's 2 beasts Mia and Leo after everyone left...[let's blame it on the Percocet's]..
so there you have it. our Christmas 2009. new years was quiet, only had 5 visitors who left much before midnight as they had to work the next day. we spent a quiet, uneventful evening with Diane falling asleep before the new year slipped in... i guess we are just getting old... to sum up my feelings, i really enjoyed Christmas, and new years eve was a bit of a bummer.
i am just relieved and glad the holidays are over. i couldn't help out at all, my poor wife had to do everything plus take care of me... i owe her BIGTIME!
oh. here is an updated picture of my broken arm with the rod inside... [anyone got a magnetic bingo wand for the staples?]
not too shabby, eh?
[yes.. it still hurts, but getting better every day]
