A week filled with joy!

                              So excited to join Saturday Celebrations with Ruth Ayres!
                    It is fun to live my week thinking about what I will celebrate on Saturday!
Discover. Play. Build.

                             A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

One -  FaceTime and phone calls with family members (seeking answers to my cooking dilemmas, in celebration of my brother's birthday on Dec. 23 and my sister's birthday on Dec. 25, and texts and pics to share an early east coast Christmas with daughter and hubby).

Two - Other cooks in the kitchen!  I love it when someone else steps into my kitchen and asks me to step out.  Stefi, Lance, and Blake all stepped into the kitchen several times this past week.  I love eating food prepared by my family members.  And the extra hands with clean-up and put-away were all appreciated!

Three - Plates of delicious holiday goodies delivered by friends.

Four - Celebrating the birth of Christ with the children in our congregation on Christmas Eve.

Five - Our FaceTime crossword puzzle with Sara and Will, and the inaugural game of Five Crowns, our new game left under the tree by Santa.

Six - Time to shop with Blake and Stefi, tell stories, watch movies and enjoy having them home for many days.  I love spending time with family!


  1. I love how your celebrations mix technology with cooking, eating, having fun, and bringing in the true meaning of Christmas!

  2. Your celebrations make me smile...there's nothing like being surrounded by the people you love. It's wonderful that you could connect with those far away too. You gotta love technology! Happy New Year! I hope the new year brings you many things to celebrate.

  3. It sounds a lot like my week, Ramona. So great to celebrate a houseful of family with a few friends in & out. So happy you had such a good week! Happy New Year!

  4. Food, games, family, friends -all of it brings joy. Enjoy the end of the year. Happy New Year!

  5. Ramona,
    It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday. I can totally relate to cooking dilemmas and wanting to have my family close to ask cooking questions.

    I'm looking forward to reading more from you soon.

    Happy New Year!
