Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We had a very nice, quiet Christmas.  Sadly, my parents who usually join us for Christmas, were not here.  My mother received a new hip for Christmas, well actually a few weeks before Christmas.  She is doing very well in her recovery and is already off of the walker and just needing a cane.
We were so happy that Rose was done with Basic training for the Army Reserves in time to be home for Christmas.  So it was just the 9 of us for Christmas this year.  Everyone loved their gifts and we had a yummy ham dinner.
We are sooo hoping that sweet "Rita" is home by next Christmas.  At this point it is hard to tell how long the process will take.  But I am hoping to have another little one in the Christmas picture next year.

The top picture is Rose's homecoming at the airport.

The bottom picture is everyone in their Christmas eve A ran off :-)

So I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and has an amazing New Year!
