Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday

Some people may be celebrating a different holiday so I post both as my header. Which ever you celebrate I wish you the best and joyous of times. May your day be filled with lots of laughter and happiness.

I managed to finish my shopping yesterday early. It wasn't what I planned for some of the gifts but was all I could manage to get done. After stopping for the few children's gifts I hit Walmart Neighborhood Grocery for the rest of the food. By time I finished I wondered if I would get it in the house. But I did and took some Tylenol and sat for a little bit. Then got busy wrapping the gifts and more rest.

My granddaughter and her family arrived around 6:30 and we had pizza. We then sat and I enjoyed the kids opening their gifts and playing. Little Jazz is so cute and she is so quiet and always has a smile on her little face. I missed seeing her twin Armani as he was with his God parents. 

Today I made a pumpkin pie and a eggnog cream pie for the first time. Hope it turned out OK it was the easiest pie to make, no baking just mixing everything together and stick in the fridge.

·        1 pkg. (3.4 oz) of vanilla instant pudding
·        2 cups cold Shamrock Farms Eggnog
·        1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
·        1 graham cracker pie crust
·        Additional frozen whipped topping, thawed, for serving (optional)
·        Ground nutmeg, for serving (optional)


In a large mixing bowl with a hand held mixer, beat pudding mix with eggnog for 2 minutes. Gently fold in 1 cup whipped topping until just combined. Spoon mixture into pie crust. Refrigerate at least four hours

We had quite a wind storm blow in this afternoon then followed by a terrible rain and the temps dropped about 15 degrees in about 25 min. Some one posted some snow up on the north end of Tucson at the Catalina Hwy area.
Good Night All and have a very wonderful Holiday 


  1. Merry Christmas Jo. Rain and wind here also but not snow so I'm smiling.

  2. I wish you and your family a very happy holiday. After it's all over, you probably need to stay off your feet for a while!

  3. Hi Sandie,

    Merry Christmas!

    Yes lots of rain and wind. Fred needed out and as soon as he saw the water on the porch came flying back in. I waited a few minutes then let him out to the front where there is more coverage he made quick time of it.

    Hi Gypsy,
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday also.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
    Be Safe and no more acrobatics.

    It's about time.

  5. Hi Rick and Kathy,

    We had a wonderful day and wonderful food. I hope your Christmas was great as well.

    No no more acrobatics for me. Grandson did a great job fixing the vent so thankful for this kid.

  6. I saw all that snow on the NBC news...I-40 was closed! Sounds like y'all had a great Christmas, ours was a fun day I din't have to cook or help with the dishes a first I do believe!
