I’ve been tired out from all the holiday activities. I awoke at 4:30 Christmas Eve and did some last minute things. Got packed up and left from my brother’s at noon. I got there at 1:00 and then left for my nephew’s at 2:00. We had a nice dinner and exchanged gifts. They liked the Raggedy Andy I got for Ryleigh. It matched the Raggedy Ann I got her last year. Joey liked his books. The stained glass candle holder matched the sconces they have on their wall. We got home around 9:00 and went to church service at 11:00. They had Christmas Communion so the service was longer than usual. I almost fell asleep. We didn’t get to bed until 1:30.

We slept until 8am. We had breakfast and then Sylvia had to peel potatoes for mashing and I had to make another Waldorf Salad to take to Tina’s. We left for Tina’s around 12:30. She had a nice dinner prepared for us when we arrived. Her husband was sick in bed. He didn’t know if he had food poisoning or stomach virus. He hardly gets any days off from work and had to spend the day, especially Christmas Day in bed. He did come down later when he was feeling a little better. We exchanged gifts. Everyone had a nice Christmas. We left Tina’s about 4:30 and went to bed around 9:30. We were exhausted.

We got up late again this morning and moved rather slowly. I needed to go to the Acme and my cousin Joy lives near there. I gave her a call to see if she would be in. Her children and grandchildren all went in to Philadelphia on the train to see the sights. I had a nice visit with Joy and her husband Bob. She showed me some photos and letters she received from her nephews. One lives in Florida and the other in Illinois.

It’s almost time to turn in. Danny has already gone up.
