|Coming July 2013|
I sure hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I certainly did. My best friend Liz invited us all to her house—me, Aunt Arabella, Liz’s brother Brian, Sylvia and my parents who came up from Florida for the holiday. Brian caught me under the mistletoe more than once. I have to admit to lingering underneath hoping for just that!
What a wonderful meal we had! Aunt Arabella made her famous oyster dressing, and Liz did a splendid job on the turkey and cheese grits. We indulged in divinity and ambrosia and pecan pie until we were too stuffed to move. The long antique table in the dining room sparkled with Liz’s best dishes and crystal and candle light flickered off the walls. It was magical.
Ben and Alice could barely contain themselves. They were so thrilled with the toys Santa left under the tree. Ben got a new bicycle and Alice got a fabulous doll house with furniture handmade by her grandfather.
Aunt Arabella gave me a gorgeous necklace—something she brought back from India and was saving especially for me. I felt so honored. I know you all are dying to know what Brian got me! He is so sweet! He gave me a beautiful pearl bracelet from The French Jewel. I may never take it off, and I have to admit I actually slept with it on!
I hope your Christmas was just as wonderful, and here’s looking forward to the new year!
