Merry Christmas Eve!

This is it!

Ready or not, it's time for the big dance

 As usual, I'm wishing I had one more week even more this year then in year's past.  

I didn't get as fully pre-prepared, if you will, for the trip down to North Carolina last weekend for Son No. 1's college graduation.  Which, by the way, went very well.  And the absolute bestest news is he's already landed a job!  

Honestly, I was a bit worried for him in this economy and so much unemployment.  He started phone interviewing for this position while in NC before graduation.  He had one final in-person interview once home, and a few days later he was informed he had the position.
Needless to say, we are very proud and happy for him . . .  and much relieved!

Didn't quite everything done on my list for this Christmas.  But it's all good.  Not really going to make a huge difference in the grand scheme of it all.   It does feel like I blinked and Christmas was here.  

Tonight, as with every Christmas Eve, we'll be hosting Hubby's family for an almost traditional Wigilia.  It's the Polish Christmas Eve vigil dinner.  

No beef or chicken - fish/seafood only, a planned number of odd dishes - 7, 9, 11, breaking communion wafers with family while giving thanks.   Hubby's family has always practiced this Polish tradition, and I'm happy we've been given the task of hosting the past half dozen or so years.  
In the words of a Pole . . .
Wesolych Swiat Bozego Narodzenia!

I hope you all enjoy the time spent with family and close friends over the next few days. 

Hopefully I'll get some time to visit some of you by way of your blogs these next few days too.  I also want to thank all of you for your readership and support.  I have enjoyed getting to know quite a few of you through your blogs.  

Merry Christmas to all!

Thanks for visiting! 
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.

You may not have done all you wanted to, but what you've shown here is fabulous!
Merry Christmas Carla, to you and your family, and all good things for the New Year!

marie said... you I haven't spent much time visiting the past month or two. My father-in-law passed away the week before Thanksgiving and it's been hard to get into the swing of things again.

I was determined to get in some visiting today...before it's next year! So glad I stopped to see you because I have loved looking at all your Christmas/winter magic. Everything looks just beautiful!
