My Christmas - 2013

Sunday, December 29, 2013

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. I had 5 sons (out of 7), my only daughter, 1 son-in-law, 2 daughters-in-law and my 3 grandchildren come over. They came from NC, PA and NY. Including my dh and myself, we had 14 for the holidays!! We made cookies, baked delicious snacks, played games, went shopping, watched Christmas movies and went to family parties! We even went to the National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY! I think my grown children had more fun than the grandkids!!! We also went and saw the 2nd movie of The Hobbit at an I-Max theater in 3-D…talk about intense!!! It was GREAT, but I still love the book better!!! I’m a J R R Tolkien fan!!!

My daughter gave me the best Christmas gift of all, the news that she’s going to have a baby!!! It will be her first and my 5th grandchild. She’s due August 1st. (I also have another grandchild due May 1st. It will by my dil’s 3rd child) So by winter next year I ought to have 5 grandchildren!! What fun!!! My dd’s husband is a doctor-to-be as he graduates this June from Medical School. Then in July they’ll be moving to San Antonio, Texas for his residency as he is in the military and that’s where they’re sending him. Needless to say, I’ll be planning a trip down there this fall for the baby!!! I’m so excited!

As far as my diet/nutrition/fitness for the holidays, I'm pretty pleased with how I did. I didn't go way off my plan, but I did have snacks and treats as well.

That was my Christmas! I hope each of you had just as great a Christmas as I did!!!

    How awesome!! Sounds like a really great time. More grandchildren, awesome. I have 1 and that's all I get but I'm thankful for her. She will be 18 in April. I don't have a Fitbit, but I hear people like them.

    From the sound of it you had a jolly, joyful, merry, happy and [whatever other fun descriptive words you can think of] holidays. There is nothing quite as fun and pleasing as having your family around you for the holidays. I am happy you had a fun time. emoticon on the expected grand babies.
