Good-bye Christmas 2016

Today I am still recovering from a combination of too much sugar and ears that never popped after the plane I was on made a nose drive to escape nasty weather.  It was such a rough flight that stewardesses remained in their seats the whole way. We didn’t even get peanuts!img_2446

The winds pushed ashore monsoon rains, making my dream of Christmas Eve at the Cantina seem more like a nightmare.  Instead we stayed close to home and made Christmas cookies and gingerbread houses.

Not bad for two five year olds and a three year old!

Love means going through a security checkpoint with a special present handmade by five year old Audrey for Pretty Kitty.

He seemed pleased, however he didn’t know exactly what it was.  A scratching post, silly kitty!

Flying home I sat on the western side of the plane and watched the sun set over marshes at the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay.

I hope you all had a magical Christmas!  Onward we march towards 2017. God help us all. Perhaps homemade cookies and milk will save us.  Well, it couldn’t hurt.

  1. Your kiddos made a terrific gingerbread house! And it was so sweet to make a gift for your kitty. Our kitty passed away right before Christmas 😦
    Wishing you are happy and joyful 2017! xx

  2. So glad you made it home to safety! The kids’ cookies and gingerbread house look yummy. And Pretty Kitty? Looking elegant (albeit puzzled) with his new post. Happy almost New Year, Jan! 🙂
