We had a wonderful Christmas....Eldo and Sparky went to each of his grandkids' cottages to make an early morning visit..Eldy has a custom of giving each grandchild a Lifesaver's Book. Eldo looks excited because he sees a whole bunch of candy on the floor that Santa left. We should have bought some candy for us! But we were good and didn't!
Sparky cooked Christmas Day today! (It's another Christmas miracle! exclaims E.) Well, don't get too excited, it was a spiral pre-baked ham, Sparky made mashed potatoes because she had to show the kids you didn't need a mixer to make lump free mashed potatoes, the gravy was courtesy of Publix grocery store, and Lori, Eldy's daughter-in-law made green bean casserole. Kelly helped Mom Sparky get everything ready. Eldo peeled the potatoes, that was his contribution.
Sparky is working hard on getting Ted, Eldy's son-in-law to smile on family photos, but it sure is hard work! And he has such a great smile when he does. But not quite today....He's holding back...Sparky has to tease him to get him to smile just a little....Connor is cracking up, Ted, almost.. C'mon, Ted! You can do it!
Sparky and Kelly took Moxie for a long walk.....After another long day at the pool, the young grandkids crashed early.....
