Christmas Joy!

Hi everyone! I have so much to write about and I don't know where to begin. I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was blessed with joy! It was so cozy here with my family! I woke up and discovered it was snowing outside my window! Dad had started a lovely fire in our stove that heats the whole house! I wasn't sick, which I was happy about on this very happy day! Mom maid pirozhkies (Russian pies with meats and mushrooms inside. We added chocolate to some, he he!) The kids introduced us to this yummy treat 2 1/2 years ago and it has been a family tradition ever since.  We all sat around knitting and playing poker and later took a walk in the snow with the two dogs and the cat! The meal was a great anticipation for me! I have been eating my parents out of house and home! 
For some reason I am not able to post pictures here, but when I get a chance I will update everyone on my tum tum! It is just now starting to peak out! I'm not as tired any more, so that is a blessing! I envy my sister Elizabeth's energy! She can just spring up the stairs with no effort at all. I have to huff and puff my way up the stairs and then take a little rest on my parents bed. When I go down the stairs I have to find the nearest chair. Elizabeth has been my slave! She cleans my messes up and gets me food or whatever I need! My mom's cooking has been heaven! I am coming home next Tuesday! I am so excited to see my Jonathan! I have never been away from him this long and I can't wait to kiss him and hug him and call him George!!!! My trip has been so much fun! Mom took us girls antique shopping on Saturday, we have been watching Christmas movies every night! The XM radio has been playing Christmas carols to get us all into the season! I wish everyone A Very Merry Christmas!!
