Emma and I did not do the crafts I wanted to do while she was here. I just wasn't feeling very well. Not sure if it was just a lack of sleep, but I was very tired. Of course when she is here, it's a lot of work keeping up with her. I think she's better about saying" thank you'. She's better about putting her dishes in the sink. But she is a wallower and has blankets and stuffed animals all over. It's always sad when she leaves . We enjoy her company.
Today, I take the tree down and finish putting away Christmas decorations. I am so ready for that now. Lots of things to do around here today.
We are ready for a quieter weekend, after the hubbub of the holidays. Wishing all of you a great weekend. XO

Glad you and Emma had a good visit. We had one frost here last week that coated the road, luckily I took it easy but many did not and there were tons of wrecks. We normally take our tree down on NY day but we have my brother late this year for Christmas on Sunday. It is looking kind of pittiful since it is real.ReplyDelete
Ann, It amazes me how some people do not think about frost being slick. I just got all my ornaments taken off and wrapped in the tote now. Looks so roomy in our living room now. LOL. Hope you have a mild winter and us also. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Looks like we will be doing the same thing today. That tree is still waiting for me! Isn't is special to enjoy your grands? How nice that Emma was able to stay over a few days. xo NellieReplyDelete
Emma ans I had some wonderful laughs, Nellie. I do enjoy my time with her. I told to look to the sky and tell me she loves me , cause that's what I do when I miss her so much. I have to wait till Ted brings in the tree box to put it in the shop attic. So glad to have this all done for now. Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo,SusieDelete

Thank you Laurie. I do love my time with family. Laurie, I try to a giving person...so many times all I can give is time and love. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, My youngest daughter has very thick hair and her daughters also have it; they keep it braided a lot-especially at night.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful low key weekend.
Noreen, I just wish my hair was half as thick as these girls. Two of my daughters had thick hair and the other two have thin hair. Blessings for a fun weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
This is a good picture of Liz and Emma. I didn't know Liz had chemo, so sorry to hear that. Please tell Emma that this is the way my hair looks after she took her braids out. I have naturally curly hair, and using a brush is the only thing I can do when it's wet.
Happy New Year, dear Susie. I want to thank you for your friendship, and you are one of my favorite ladies in blog land.
Thank you Sheri, you are so kind. I wish my hair was this thick. LOL. Blessings for a great weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
Aww, Emma is such a cutie. I know you have a good time with her when she visits. My sister had really thick hair like that too. It's hard to take care of.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Susie! Wishing you all the best. Thanks for being my blog buddy.
Kathy, I enjoy visiting your blog and seeing what going o in your neck of the woods, as Al Roker would say. LOL. I wish I had the hair my daughter Liz and her daughter Emma have. You are getting closer to retirement... Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
p.s. hope Joe is doing well.
I know what you mean about trying to keep up with a grandchild.It is always bittersweet when they leave. Your daughter and granddaughter are both pretty girls, glad you can enjoy them.ReplyDelete
Thank you Linda. I do love any time I can get with my girls and their children. It never seems to be enough. Hope you are doing better. I know you have been having a tough time . I pray for you . Bless your heart, xoxo,SusieDelete
I not only adore Emma's beautiful hair and pretty face...Emma is one of my favorite names and why I didn't think of it when naming our little baby girl 45 yrs ago, I'll never know...my grandmother's name was Emma....ReplyDelete
BJ, Maybe one of your granddaughter could be named Emma. :) There are names I like so much better than my own....in our family we were given names , then later got nicknamed . I have a brother that people have called Red for years...but I never called him that :):). xoxo,SusieDelete
Such beautiful face and hair. In the picture it looks auburn...my natural before grey...HaHa. Take a rest now... You deserve it.ReplyDelete
Wanda, My hair was auburn ..and thanks to certain products , it still is. LOL. Two of my daughters had reddish hi-lights in their brown hair. Two had blonde like their father. I want to rest today...I got that tree down. I cleaned as I went too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Emma's hair is beautiful like her mother's. Sometimes after chemo hair comes back a different color and an opposite of what it was before. I can tell that Emma is a special girl. I bet you do miss her when she is gone. I haven't seen my two granddaughters that live close by since before Christmas. We were hoping to d our Christmas tomorrow but decided to wait another week. They had two weeks of flu.....the girls tested positive. Then with my streph it just wasn't a good idea. hoping I can undecorated here soon. It won't take long as I kept it simple. A plastic bag over the teddy bear tree and into the closet. Easy for sure. Have a Happy New Year.ReplyDelete
Debby, I hate hearing that your family's been so sick and you too. It's getting scary. I think it will be worse by the time winter is over. I keep hearing of people getting pneumonia after the flu. So please take care of yourself. I know you miss your little girls. We love our grandkids, don't we? xoxo,SusieDelete
I enjoyed Christmas very much but I am also glad it's over. It's time to slog through the awful months of Jan. and Feb. at least weather wise. It's snowing as I write this though it's suppose to warm up to the 50's on Sunday. Typical changing New England weather.ReplyDelete
What a lovely family you have!
