Quiet Christmas Moments

The National Battleground was closed on Christmas Day so we stopped by the Cemetery. I’m sure it wasn’t everyone’s idea of a fun way to spend Christmas afternoon. But we’d had lots of fun for a week. A visit to any cemetery with a long past history is always a treat for me. I wonder where we will end up next year…..

The cemetery is filled with unmarked graves of Civil War soldiers

Sometimes I am drawn to the epitephs, others just the sheer age of the grave

This tree looks like it found a place to die..

It’s just like a stone neighborhood

Somehow I feel I’m the only one enjoying this side trip. 😏

PS In the real time world of sports, let me just say,

“Go Saints!” Sorry Dan. We haven’t had a stellar year since their last ride to the Superbowl, about ten years ago, I believe….

Traditionally Twisted/ChristmasFun

While I wish all my family could be together for the holidays, I was thrilled to have two of my sons and their sweeties to share this special time with. Here are a few of the highlights. We have always been big movie fanatics-no wonder they all love movies and music.  One continues to play music any chance he gets while another has chosen the film industry as his work.

We watched all the usual traditional Christmas favorites as well as the freaky and fun new additions over the years. One of our favorites, especially for my hubby and youngest, was A Christmas Story. “Bumpasses!” And “You’ll shoot your eye out!” ring throughout the house every year and the laughs always come during the final scenes of the turkey tragedy and Chinese dinner. Farararara…..

So, when we saw the suit in the store….

Oh Ralphie, that is so adorable….not! Lol

 

 

Now I’m ready…….
