hello everyone, I had asked my family (brother and daughter,wife wouldn't get out of bed, sis &husband, 2nd sis (widow) and last sis and husband ( couldn't make it from southern Ohio) understood that with snow that was called for here in sw Pa. to come to our home for the 19th. at 1:00. There would have been 18 people. THEN, the SNOW!!!!!
Everyone canceled!
That evening, the 19th, at 8, my sister called and said they would all like to come on the next day! They had the food prepared ahead (thanks to you all who helped with the menu). We did have a good time and ended with renewed relationships that had been damaged before.

That sounds like real comfort food. I know your family enjoyed it.

My daughter makes us a small scrapbook each year with family pictures she's taken during the year. Actually she makes such a scrapbook for each of our immediate family (4). They are a real keepsake and not too expensive (but they do take a lot of planning and time to assemble).

This year we gave our grandkids season passes to the local children's theatre. That means we'll have 4 planned "outtings" with them during the next year. (And their parents will have 4 afternoons "kid free".) We also bought them a scooter to share at our house. More toys they don't need.

My dad buys whatever he wants whenever he needs it. This year I fixed him up with a snack sack - crackers, nuts, candy, cheeses, summer sausage, etc. I also tucked in a pair of slipper socks. He should be set for the New Years Day ballgames!
