Almost the New Year

Posted by: cheryl

Well, Christmas 2011 is just a memory now.  We had a wonderful day.  Going to church, then to mom and dad's for lunch and then opening gifts and watching the little ones play. Came home to take a nap then back to mom and dad's to eat leftovers.   Last nite we opened our gifts here at home.  I think everyone was pleased with what Santa brought them. And yes.........according to Ritzywife - there is a Santa!!!!!
I wasn't planning on doing anything today but the son suggested going to Owasso.  I decided to go with him to get a few groceries and see what I could find in the after christmas sales.  I must say, I was very pleased with the bargains I found.  I am set for next year for all my gift-wrapping and decorating needs.  Woo Hoo!!!!
After all the running around these past few days, I am ready to slow down a bit.  I spent the rest of the day cooking dinner, putting some stuff away and finding a place in my kitchen for some of my gifts to "live".  
Watched a movie with the son-in-law and daughter tonite on t.v.   Well it was just the son-in-law and I that finished the movie,  the daughter fell asleep.  Was a good movie tho.  I told the son-in-law I was glad he suggested watching it.  They are spending the nite tonite.  I think that he is probably in there right now playing on the X-box.
I love this time of year and being together with loved ones.  The only thing that could have made it better would have been to see some of that "white stuff" falling from the sky.  I don't know when we will see any of that, but heck Winter just got started, so I guess I will just wait and see what happens.
It is just so hard to believe that 2011 is just about gone.  It is gonna be 2012 before we know it and then Springtime and time for those precious baby boys to be born.
I bought each one of them a Spongebob fishing pole for Christmas.  Two reasons for that, the daughter loves Spongebob and the son-in law doesn't care for the show at all.  I did it to be onery.  Well.......that son-in-law told me tonight that he just realized what was on the fishing poles, hahahaha!!!!!  I told him I did it just to irritate him, (in a good way) ;-)
Well, he got me back this year............and I might say he did a great job.  After what I did to him last year I deserved what I got.  He told me last year he would get me back, and i was thinking he had forgot about it.  We were up at mom and dad's and I was handed a gift. In it was a note telling me how they were going to take the "high road" and get me a "nice" gift.  I open the bag and pull out a t-shirt that I can see a target on and it also says "SUCKER".  Then I proceeded to get bombarded with silly string.  I had no idea who was shooting because i was hiding behind the shirt.  I found out tonite that it was the son-in-law, the daughter, the son and Ritzy doing the "shooting".  Can ya believe it------Ritzy was in on it?!?!?  I put that shirt on last night and wore it for a while.  it surprised them cause they told said that they thought I would just throw it away.  Heck, why throw away a perfectly good t-shirt.........
We had a good time, and that is what it is all about, I believe---having fun and good times with your family and friends!
I have had all the fun I can handle for a while, at least for a Ritzywife out.......
