Christmas was a blast

We had an awesome Christmas!

I was told however that I am NEVER allowed to write to Santa again. I wrote to Santa back in the first part of December and I was thinking that the letter would be thrown away.....oh no. Not only did we have food dropped off, but people were still dropping presents by on Christmas eve!

I met Santa on Christmas eve. She was getting ready to leave us some gifts by the door. I got to talking to her and I realized where I knew her from. She worked at the post office!

She and a another worked gathered up all the dear Santa letters and they just started making phone calls.

I cried. Who knew that a letter to Santa would bring us so much help. I actually felt bad that we were given so much. Then I remembered what my dad said. He said " people want to help, but unless you tell them what you need they can't help". My oldest daughter said that this is pay back for the nice things we have done for other people.

My mom got me a wind chime with my dads date of death on it. There was a poem attached to it and it said that every time I hear the wind chime, that would be coming to visit.

Anyway, Old town San Diego was so nice. I got some pictures of these grave markers that in the street! They had no idea when they paved the street that it use to be part of the cemetery!

We got to Coronado island just as the sun was setting, so my mom was so happy to have her picture taken at sunset. She also got to see the Hotel Del Coronado. She said that she had wanted to see it because famous people use to go there in the 20's and 30's. I am just glad that we got to make two of her wishes come true.

I had to laugh. Here is was Christmas eve, and we were eating dinner outside. Then we heard the life guards going down the beach telling people to get out of the water.

I have the ham and beans in the crock pot. Later on today we are going to go feed the ducks and then go out to lunch.
