Christmas Spirit

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

I am full of the holiday spirit! ! Last Friday my work had our annual Christmas lunch where we revealed each others secret santas I ended up with some wonderful Christmas Figurines. Last Saturday I went on an annual shopping trip to the city by the bay ( San Francisco) and had a wonderful time, we arrived at union square and my daughter and niece and myself took the bus down to the pier to hit one of our favorite stores that is going out of business. she bought one thing I bought $ 86.00 dollars worth! my daughter spent some money there as well! then we took the bus back to Union Square and caught up with my eldest nieces did some more shopping I managed to by a few gifts then ( still have to do more gift shopping and less of me shopping!) then we took the charter bus we came on back down to the pier and went to the many shops on and around the pier then we had dinner with two of my older sisters. it was really yummy and we had a wonderful time. then we all piled on the bus and
headed back to home looking forward to next years shopping trip

On Tuesday night I attended my church's ladies annual ornament tea exchange we had wonderful fellowship and great yummy food one of the ladies is an awesome gourmet cook and
made some wonderful looking treats and finger foods one I tried it was not bad but then I found out it was made with Caviar!!! oh well it is good to try different things and now I can say I have tried it but I don't think I will be doing that again!

Next week I am attending another Ornament cookie exchange and at the same time making the final touches on my house decorations and of course gift giving and planning for a special day after Christmas gathering at my house.

I hope the holiday spirit is with all of you
