2015 Jones’ Christmas: Finished

20151214_075549.jpg

Happy Christmas Eve! Today we’ll be spending the whole day with my side of the family! There will be beer and probably Nerf or marshmallow wars. There will be sugar highs and sugar crashing and other shenanigans! Yay!!

On Tuesday I finished up all of my Christmas To Do list! I wrapped the last present, wrote out cards to my family members, washed crock pots, gave up on eating right until next week, made a Mincemeat pie using my new Fox cookie cutter, made a cheese pastry, and sent the last Christmas cards out. I enjoyed Elf one more time before the big day!

On Wednesday, I took presents and goodies to my Mom’s house and ran the last errands with her. Back at my parents, I helped Mom set up and hung out with them, Liz, Imogene, and Remi before running to visit Deanna. The day was very slow paced overall. Nice. I got a wonderful reaction to my story from Emily S. also which was super fun.
On a more serious note, my husband’s 101 year old Grandmother passed away in her sleep last night. She was a believer and died in her sleep. God is the God of all comfort!
