    I enjoy reading what you send and looking at the pictures. Looking forward to 2014 and what you will come up with.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS from SC, Mrs. Claus

  8. Cute picture 🙂 Love Norman Rockwell! There is a Norman Rockwell museum not far from our place in Mass. It’s a fun place to visit.

    It’s 10:00 am and hubby is still sleeping. He woke up feeling sick :(. We opened gifts last night and I got a Go Pro camera. Have you heard of them? We saw it on 60 min. a few weeks ago. So now when I go bungee jumping I can video it. 😉

    Hope you have a great day Susan! Merry Christmas!!

  9. Wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas!!

  10. Blessings to you on this most special of days…yes a nap is in the plan!

  11. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Susan!
    May you be blessed in the year to come!

  12. Merry CHRISTmas to you, too, Susan!! I KNOW I’m taking a nap after all the excitement & work of Christmas Eve.
    I hope you got to see Chip & his wife…when is that new grandbaby due, anyway????

  13. Merry, Merry, Susan. Hope you are enjoying time with your son and DIL. Beautiful day here in TX and wishing you the same! ~ Sarah

  14. Merry Christmas to you, Susan! I hope you get to spend some wonderful time with your son and daughter-in-law. Just think that next year it will be your grandchild’s first Christmas! How wonderful that will be. I love the Norman Rockwell picture. I grew up with all of his wonderful paintings on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post magazine. Even though I will be cooking a big lunch with ham, veggies, and hot rolls, I plan to just laze around today and watch BBC programs on my Kindle Fire. I finished all of the Doc Martin series that are out and now I am watching Foyle’s War. You were right about Doc Martin. I loved it! Merry Christmas to my new Georgia friend!

    • Linda, we visited Port Isaacs (Port Wen in the Doc Martin program) and stood by the house and had lunch in the school house. It is a lovely place.

  16. Hope Santa was good to you all, our family is dining out for Christmas Dinner this year at a resort. It certainly will make a change, no cooking for my Daughter or myself.
    Stay safe on the roads if you have to travel today.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, New Year.
    Susan, thank you for everything you have given us this year, it is like Christmas every day!!! 🙂
