Good Morning To You, I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with all sorts of Christmas preparations and traditions. I went to a ladies fellowship yesterday with my good friend and it was such fun; a dinner and guest speaker whose topic was Hats and Their History. I love girl times, be it with our daughters and their girls or with friends. As a young mother I was blessed with lots of other woman with young ones; in my case my own mother was deceased so I didn't have her to guide me along, but I had the absolute best sister and sister of my heart as well as good friends. I'm not really sure how it came about but when my girls were about 9 and 7, we decided to have a yearly "girls" Christmas date in San Francisco. The first several years, we dressed up in our finest dresses, went to a very nice restaurant for lunch and then attended the Nutcracker Ballet at the Opera House. Oh my, the ladies in real fur coats and little girls in their finest-what a sight to behold. It was a very expensive day but my sil and my sister split the cost with me so it was affordable. We did this for a few years and then decided to go see A Christmas Carol or Little Women and one year we even went to the Dickens Fair. My daughters have such fond memories of these days. We also bought each gal a special Christmas pin to wear throughout the season, just to remember our occasion. Somewhere along the years we ended up letting this slip by and when we spent time with our dear sil in Oct. she mentioned that we will need to start this up again because we have so many little girls. I see Denver in the future for such dates.
This Friday our men and boys are going to a hockey game so all of the girls will gather at our oldest daughter's house, have a fancy dessert and watch Little Women on their big screen. I can't wait; for me this is what the holidays are about!
Hugs to you,
Gone Campin' at the Mini BAR
