Stephen was sick so we decided it would be best to stay in for the day and night.
However, a little illness in the house did not keep Grandma away. She decided it was time to come and see us and we were very glad she did.
We had a very quite time enjoying the day with Grandma, Kim and David. We talked, ate and shared more gifts. It was all very cozy and a nice way to end the year.
In the light of 2009 Stephen was much better and we were able to join in on the traditional New Years Day “Good Luck” Southern Meal…………of Black eye peas, collards and Ham………………
Unfortunately, for us, none of us like Black eye what ever and collards ~ “Gross! What’s that?” BUT, for good merit and our Southern children we all tried to give it the “good old Yankee try”.
Thank goodness Margaret made rice and a salad. We could have starved to death!
For some reason, Reiner seemed a little tense and looked like he wanted to start a fight. But then again, how can you take a man seriously wearing a Minnie Mouse oven mitt………..?
Sometimes I wonder about that man.
At the end of the day everything seemed almost normal again…………….
until I saw my parents walking home.
