Good Saturday morning everyone! Although its Saturday we are both up really early. But, we have a busy day planned today. We have our family's Christmas this afternoon in the town near where we used to live. Its about an hour's drive from here. Our son and his wife viewed a home in that vicinity last week and are having a second viewing, which they have asked us to join them at today. So, just before the party, we will all meet at a home that they like and then after we view it we will all go to the party together. But......before all of that fun I still have to get groceries. I also have to do up some red cabbage. I have a brother-in-law that just loves it, so I bring it every year to our party. But, on the bright side, the stuffing is all done that I'm bringing as well as the jello. What are you up to this Saturday morning? ~Photo is mine of the guys doing dishes after our Christmas meal

Well, I was getting ready to respond, and I grabbed my mug to take a drink of coughee first, only it was empty, so what I am up to is making another cup of coughee.

Thanks, I'm pretty pumped about it. Since we are such a huge family we only gather once a year. Our nephew brought his new born last year and I haven't seen him since.......he could be walking around today. ALOT happens in all of our lives in a year and its so great to catch up again. I'm looking forward to seeing Simon and his parents and his grandparents today.

@LovingMyBabies We're so excited. Now we have to let the red cabbage boil for an hour before loading everything up in the car and driving down. This will be a very long hour I'm afraid because we're both pretty excited.

I did not really care for the house we viewed, but there are so few homes on the market and they really do want to move. I preferred the last one that they looked at over this one. This one was a cookie-cutter home to me, such a plain floor plan.

@Courtlynn They liked them both, but they cannot seem to get the first home's owners to agree to sell. The one that they looked at yesterday the owners want a longer closing.

Hope you enjoyed your party and I love red cabbage too. Today was just a busy "at home" day...waited for my new dryer to be delivered, wrote out the last of my Christmas cards, wrapped gifts and hoping to relax tonight and catch up on some tv while my daughter is at her Christmas party

The arrival of a new appliance was always a somewhat exciting day in our household too. I loved checking out the new features after it was installed.

We were supposed to go out of town but our plans changed. So I just did a couple errands in town and am catching up on things in the house today. Enjoy your family's party today.

Are you doing the "sweet and sour red cabbage"? I love that stuff.

I will pm you the recipe. Its quite easy actually, but not liking it, I have to follow the recipe to the letter as I cannot taste it and add more of this or that.

Oh thanks Sharon. We have a lot to do before we can leave. My husband seems to be moving pretty slowly this morning, and I need him with me at the grocery store.

Nothing much. I have just finished my Saturday class on Institute of Religion.This is the 2nd day of our Festival of Lights. We have a bad weather today. There is no fun or Christmas presentation in the plaza.

It does sound like you have a busy day today. I hope it goes well for you. I don't have much planned today. My husband and I will pick up our kids a little later this morning, since they had a sleepover at grandma's house. Otherwise, it'll be a quiet day, I think.

Enjoy your time together after you get the kids home again. I'm actually waiting for my husband to finish showering, and I'm watching Christmas Shoes on utube, and bawling my eyes out. That is such an emotional movie.
