Christmas Disco



Well it's over! I did not get my grandbaby in my stocking, but I had a very cozy Christmas at home. I finally was able to enjoy a Christmas at home with no traveling, mainly because Jess(my daughter) is due any day and I'm the coach! We served Christmas dinner at the fairgrounds on Christmas Eve dressed for winter, but it was over 65 degrees and sunny. We felt such a Christmas spirit, generosity and gratitude in that hall. We came home for pecan pie and to watch Scrooge (Albert Finney). It's a Christmas Eve ritual I love. Dave got me an official blogging chair for Christmas. It came with a large seat (in case my butt grows from all the fudge I ate), heat, massage, rocker, lumbar and head support...I'm gonna get my blog on!

We had Pancakes and bacon for breakfast and never got out of our pj's. Jess came over at 2pm because her hubby had to work. She is 5'1" and at 9mos pregnant, miserable! After our Christmas dinner we sang karaoke and disco danced to the BeeGees, hoping she would go into labor. LOL What a sight, the little bowling ball, the crip who wiggled with her feet firmly planted on the ground and the poor guy with no rhythm. It was so much fun, but that darn baby would not budge!

Today we did the "returns" and cleaned up the house from all the "Christmas cheer" lying around. We are pooped, but I had to blog in my blogger chair before I hit the hay. I'll get back in my chair tomorrow and share my gift to Dave.

I'm so glad you guys had a wonderful Christmas-a little biter that we couldn't be with you guys-but understand that Jessie needs you :) Poor girl, this time last year I was almost in the same boat as her. 7 months pregnant, as big as a boat, and peeing every hour. Oh, but the payoff is so grand.
Much Love

Please tell me you guys video taped everyone doing karaoke and that you're going to send it out to everyone you know! lol. I'm glad you had a good time. Don't worry. Grandbaby will be here within days, you watch!

I'm not sure I would ever leave that Blogging chair! Merry Christmas.

Maybe Baby is holding out to be the New Year's baby. Usually brings a lot of loot! :D

We can definitely relate. We stayed home this year, her parents are on a cruise and mine were at their home in Florida so we had a relaxed Christmas this year. No travelling and no guests other than that jolly fat man.

Breath - Push - Breath!

ha ha Good luck!

I had a vision reading this of an infant hanging onto the womb with all her strength saying "are you kidding? Go out there? Look at those people!!

Of course it's just a vision. I'm sure she's very anxious to get out -- perhaps if Grandpa whispers to the bowling ball's belly that he promises not to dance in public if she's with him?

(all in jest of course)

Merry belated Christmas!
