Merry Christmas And Paper Plates

It is with certainty that Paper Plates are a necessary evil at our house during the Holidays. I am aware of the damage that the contribute to the earth. Yet I still choose to use them.
Our kids and their kids
 are all home for the Holidays and we would by far rather spend time together than washing more dishes than we have to.
I do have a confession to make, In the last 7 days since the arrival of the family we have gone through 210 paper plates.  I don't know how.  Of course there are 10 of us. and  6 of them insist on eating 3 times a day LOL.   We still have 10 days left I will keep count until they depart.

Merry Christmas and I will write to you next year.

How Many Paper Plates Do You Use??????????

And the Door Bell Rang

I have mentioned this before. Christmas is not my Best Holiday. Its a long story that could most likely is the reason for Therapy. That be never mind.  We will be celebrating just like we do every year.  BUT.....................................................
This year I wanted it to be more like what the season is really about. Not expensive gifts. That produces so much stress and money spent on things. I wanted memories, simple and loving memories.  I spoke with the kids and we are going to have a simple but memorable Christmas.
The Arizona K's are coming to Utah for good food, games, laughs, a trip to the movies and maybe to the Hot Springs in Idaho.
Oh and the doorbell thing.  I hate doorbells. I do not like people at the door that are unexpected. Please call first so we are prepared. By being Prepared I mean being dressed, putting the dogs away, making sure the Family Room is picked up.   Simply things that make me feel like I am prepared even though I was not.
Tonight the door bell rang twice within 40 min. First, our Home Teacher who we dearly love and enjoy every moment we spend with him each month. He brought a lovely gift. The dogs were out, I was folding towels all over the place and dishes sitting on the table. I am sure he did not notice. Not more than 5 min they may have even had a fender bender in the drive way. The Doorbell rings and 3 lovely ladies from the Relief Society dropped by with a fabulous basket of Christmas Goodies. Nothing had changed. Dogs, laundry. They were Sisters I have never met all new to the Ward. It was such a pleasure to meet them.
The Doorbell is really not such a bad thing. It sometimes yields blessings. Prepared or not. It is about the people not about STUFF.

It has been a very long time since I have been able to post. 
The Surgery has taken a tole on me.  BUT, today I have been given the go ahead to start getting back to living again.  My plan is to slowly get back to a new and less painful existence. I have not sewn or done any crafting in the last 4 months.  The Sewing Room is a MESS! One like I have never had before. I will be tackling that this week with the help of my sweet daughter Spring.  And then it begins........................

I will always be making something..................
