The Greatest Gift of All
Mr. Christmas-Larry at Natalie's and Joe's House
Of course, the greatest gift of all is HEALTH. Without your health, you've got nothing (or 'bubkes' as my Grandma used to say). The second greatest gift I have is a happy, well-adjusted husband who adores me. Larry is truly a joy. He is like a child at Christmas. I always have to include some sort of toy, book or CD boxed set with his gifts. He gleefully, plays with his new toys all day. This year I included the Donovan Boxed Set; a Wallace and Gromit toy from the latest movie; Rockford Socks with sock monkey directions and then the usual dress socks, corderoy shirts and assorted t-shirts.
Larry gifted me with some wonderful presents, including some new palette knives for painting; a can of Dust-Off to clean my keyboard with; a beautifully carved crochet hook and a marvelous set of dessert plates designed by our favorite artist, SHAG commemorating Disneyland's 50th Anniversary. I don't have the plates yet, they are on order, but I've included photos of the prints below. Santa brought me a beautiful little porcelain box of my beloved Farmers Market iconic clock tower. It was truly a fun-filled holiday!
This week, I'm gearing up for the family Chanukah party! Latkes to fry, salmon to poach, apples to cook for applesauce, etc. Many of my cousins and aunts are bringing elements for the dinner too. The big thing is just dusting, vacuuming and getting our house people-ready for the party! Oy! Happy New Year everyone!
