Our Christmas this year was very pleasant. Every year I feel there just isn't enough time to see everyone I would like to see, or do everything I would like to do. But it always works out however it is meant to... I suppose. Brian's family came in town this year to celebrate here, so Bob and I and Bobby were invited over to their house yesterday for a nice meal. We brought Maddie her gifts to open up there and got to take movies and pictures of her 2nd Christmas. Last night we exchanged our gifts amongst ourselves. Katy and Brian and Maddie got me tickets to see Chicago at The Fox next week. I will be going with Katy and I am really looking forward to it. I love live performances.
A good gift choice for Bob is almost always a book, and Bobby gave him a sports book and Katy and Brian gave him a gift certificate. I also got him some books that I thought he would like.
One is about some of our Catholic churches and their history and architecture. And 2 others are about St. Louis Cardinals baseball.
We got Bobby the lettering and numbers on his Blues Jersey that we got him last year. Since I do not watch sports, I could not tell you anything about this person he wanted on the jersey.
Bobby knows how much being together as a family means to me, and got me this game. We all watch this TV show and have since it started so it should be a fun way to spend some family time together.
The gym was not open yesterday, but I got in there today and managed to increase some of the exercises I do. I have now advanced to 10 minutes on the elliptical machine. I hope to be up to 30 minutes in a few more months. It is FREEZING here!!!!!! I think we had a high of 20 today. We have had very little snow, but with all the rain we had for a few days, the water on the side streets froze up and you have to be careful. I hope it starts to warm up to the 40's pretty soon. That sounds warm to me right about now.
