Today was Christmas day, and I got some wonderful gifts. One of my favourites was this frog prince egg box.
I also got some new pandora beads for my bracelet. I love beads, and these mean a great deal to me because they came from some amazing people who I consider family.
I had a great day and when I was done opening my gifts and eating dinner, I got to visit my 104 year old grandad. He is an amazing man, who builds clocks and musical instruments. He plays several musical instruments, and did a small show for us all on his violin this year. Being near him has always made me happy, and seeing him makes me smile. He is so wise, and kind. I am not sure I will ever meet another person like him. He has taught me so much.
This is how my grandad had his house decorated.
Here he is fixing, and then playing a violin. It was go good to hear him play again. I hadn't heard his violin in years as he's been playing the banjo more lately.
I had a wonderful time. The holidays have always been magic at his house. He never seems to age. He's been the same since I was a baby.
I got really sick while I was there tonight. I tried to hide it. My leg has been going numb for two days, and the room began spinning while I was there. I lost sight for awhile in my left eye, but it returned. I hadn't been feeling too well all weekend, but wasn't missing christmas at my grandad's for anything. I didn't care if I had to be taken in on a streacher. Fortunately I made it through the night with only a few minor tears of pain. The joy far outweighed the pain, and I had a fabulous evening.
Merry Christmas Everyone
