I've been decorating trees this week

My sister, Candy, had her teeth pulled this week.  She said she would be fine with out me, but called Tuesday afternoon to see if I could come stay with her per doctor's orders.  I packed my bag and headed her way.  She did really well with her teeth except a lot of swelling.  She looked like a little squirrel with her cheeks full of acorns.  She will have more pulled in a month or so.  Her teeth look very good.

Just the day before, I had gone to Ruston, La. which is almost to where my sister lives.  I took several Christmas trees to Hunter, our youngest son.  I have a smaller tree and don't have room for the biggest tree.  Hunter and I decorated the big tree for the Parrish fire station and the smaller tree went next door to the administration building.  I took him all of his ornaments from childhood.  It filled my truck.  I was happy to finally pass along his stocking as well.  Dish broken.  LOL!

I started hanging Candy's ornaments and before I knew it, I had completed her tree.  She has been in and out of the hospital around five times this year with three of them being in the last couple of months.  Needless to say, she has not felt like unpacking boxes.  Thankfully, I was able to unpack some boxes and put things in their right places.  I emptied her hallway and move stuff to a better place. Moved book case to the guest bedroom.  The guest bedroom is set up.  I hung curtains while standing on a bed and my legs felt like jello.  We ran errands the next day. I drove her nuts because I was determined to get a lot of boxes unpacked.  Sorry sister for never stopping and bugging you about stuff for you to go through.  Living room is cleaned, bar cleaned off, table cleared off, boxes of things for Goodwill, deck cleaned off, washing room cleaned out.  Her home looks very nice.  Only a couple of rooms left to do.  We even did a little walking.  Thank goodness she had pain medicine.

I drove back home yesterday to find out that our oldest son and his family will be here today.  They moved their Christmas up and will be here for a few days.  Needless to say I am excited, but I have to shop for groceries and clean my house and cook.  I am thankful they are coming.  I think Hunter and his girlfriend are coming over for the day.  It will be so grand to have our family together.  I feel so blessed.

Merry Christmas.
