Christmas 2012

This year,as always,we will have kids and grand kids over Christmas day.It has been proven,that I am the biggest kid of all.Call me a pushover or a big wuss,but I do love a family get together.
I am the one that would try to get the kids up at 4:00 to open their gifts.I can remeber Sarah telling me to grow up and go back to bed.
I remember us trying toget our presents opened befor my mother in law got to our house.
Now this woman did love her Christmas day.Every thing had to be done just the same as always.She even put 1.50 in change in my gift one time.When I asked her why,she said she spent a 1.50 more on her son than on me.
The dinner had to be just right.There was even a list of what was to be served.
I remember my brother ,sister and I ,having to hurry with our presents,so we would go to our grand parents,for dinner.Some times it was weeks before I knew what I got,because we were on the run all day.
Now we are lucky,that we stay at home and the kids come to us.I do not know how much longer this will last,but for know it works.
I remember Christmas past--my fil always lost his dinner roll.he always would say some one would steal it.
I remember the walks after,to walk off the food,so we would go back and eat pie.
Every year I would ask Mell( my Dads mom did not want to be called  Grannie)to come eat with us.For 35 years she said no.One year she said yes.This was one my best Christmas ever.She had never even been to my Dads for Christmas.In the next few months she pasted away.Maybe she knew what was to come.She did not stay long,but she came.
Know I love to watch the grand kids open the gift and see the look on their faces.I try and stir crap up with the grand kids and always get caught by Nene.
It always seems to go by to fast.

I want to wish all of 'yawl a very Merry Christmas to you and yours fom me and mine.

Till next time----Poohpa,Nene,Sarah,Gerry,Abbie,Nolan,Caity,Kevin,Angie,Hailey,Kasey,Keith,Sydney,Peyton,And little man--Andrew.

Christmas Time At The Store

Well here it is --time for Christmas.
This is a time that I love,execpt for all the butt wipes at the store.What is it that makes grown men and women go stupid,at holiday time.
How can a grown man,not know anything about grocery shopping!This is the time of year,when you see guys,in the store, that just stand in the isles with a lost look on their faces.How can you not know that green beans are not in the meat dept.?
Do you ever find milk on the can veggie isle?
This the time of year,when the Wife is busy and sends them to the ,maybe for the first time.I ain't talking about no 20 yr old.These are men that are 40+ yaers old.Have you never had to buy coffee or cigs?
Every year we just stand behind the meat counter and wait for the dumb struck to come in.I guess they come to us.I swear they look like deer in the head lights.
I hate to see grown men lost.

Till next tme -----Poohpa
