I can't believe that Christmas has come and gone. We had a wonderful time with family sharing in the festivities and eating lots of goodies. We were able to celebrate Christmas with my folks on the 20th, which working out well for everyone. We got tons of stuff, which is not unusual. I got my new camera and some more of my Willow Tree Nativity. We went to Owensboro to celebrate with Brian's family on the 23rd and stayed until the 27th. It was a much needed visit. We had some yummy Moonlight BBQ and many homemade cookies. This morning I got on the scale and gratefully did not gain an ounce. We got a beautiful new decorative clock for the living room and some curtains for the dinning area. Curtains are not cheap, so we are doing one window at a time. Since we are renting and still not owning it's hard to see getting rods and curtains for windows that we may not need eventually. But it makes the house look more homey and helps keep the warm in. We also brought home a gun this Christmas from Owensboro. I am terrifed of guns and had a hard time shooting it, but with encouragement and Brian's dad there to teach me I did it. I'm still not thrilled about having a handgun, but I understand it's importance and protection. I think if someone tries to break in I will have no problem shooting them.
