No Excuses

No blogging since Wednesday - no reason.

Our southern family arrived Friday afternoon and we had a wonderful (almost) two days!  We have a new holiday. It falls between Thanksgiving and Christmas when things work out that we can't be together on the actual dates. It's called Thanksmas. ( I wish the northern family could have been here too - that would have made it perfect.) But we missed them and thought good thoughts about them while eating the peppernuts they made!

We had a wonderful dinner made by one MLN. We have three with those initials in our family and this is the youngest one. An artist and great cook and one of four of the best granddaughters anybody could ever hope for. She and her sister, TAN, created the new holiday. When LTN worked shifts, we usually celebrated those big days on his day off to have more time to enjoy. Maybe that's where their idea came from - through osmosis.

I hope everyone who reads this excuse for a blog, had a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful Christmas. We will enjoy Christmas, but have already had a blessed Thanksmas.


  1. I'm so glad you had a good time with family. I think Thankmas is a very good name.

  2. What ever works! As long as you are together!

  3. Very nice visit! Wish we could've stayed longer!!
