I had a wonderful Christmas with my in-laws at their home. Everyone was so overly giving this year and has taught me not to be so strict with presents...I am thankful for everyone even thinking of me, although I'm a grown up and don't really need anything, I appreciate everyone being so sweet and thoughtful. My husband got me a gorgeous diamond necklace but the chain came apart (I don't know how), so I'll have to send that back to the jeweler and I'll post soon. We usually agree not to exchange gifts (I may be a 'Diva of the Midwest', but I'm not a frivolous spender) and DH got around that by saying Duke, our dog, got the present.
Since this was our year to be with DH's side of the family, I did miss my mom and dad...but I did get to church today and was able to thank God for everything I do have even if they're not with me today, I'm glad they are my parents.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day, I'll be posting soon :-)
P.S. This isn't my puppy (mine is a bigger version) but I thought this pic was too cute not to share.
