Christmas begins............

Here's to what a wonderful time we had celebrating the greatest gift to all for all time- Jesus!-  and, even more so, here's to celebrating all year long!

In the last few weeks I heard talk of Christmas as just another national holiday or a commercialized and stressful. And, I have to say, as Buddy the Elf would, - "Shocking" 

Christmas is a WORLD-wide celebration!  For me, a Christian, it starts in January and climaxes in December.  So all year long Christmas is in my heart.  I carry Jesus with me.  All year I aim to give because God gave, Jesus gave, and the 3 wise men and shepherds gave on the night of Jesus' birth.

If Christmas is in your heart all year long, then giving is a way of life, and your love for it only grows stronger as the year goes on.  It is a priority in my heart- like praying, reading the Bible, or loving my family.  

The commercialization of another doesn't put a damper on my celebrating.  They have their reward here and now, but there are rewards that those people don't understand.  Those are the rewards I am looking forward to.  

At the end of the year my only regret is that I couldn't give more. So here's to a happy new year and Christmas..... as it begins again.

What's your traditional Christmas meal?

Well, for many families, Tamales are a tradition around Christmas and New Year's eve.  I have a friend who has requested some tamales for her family and I am looking forward to making them.  I will let you know how it goes!

At last, Mr. James and I go out.....

It's been some time since Mr. James and I were able to go out, but a couple nights ago we did. We visited a place his boss introduced him to. Well, sort of. Anyway, we love the place! They give you a silver bowl and you get to walk through the.... let's call it the "ingredients buffet"..... and pick all your own fish, meat or poultry. Then you pick your veggies, and then your sauce.  The idea is to pile it on as high as you can. This was my first time, but I tried to pack it in.

 I don't believe I should could go without mentioning that I wanted to try the restaurant several months ago and Mr. James gave a response that included references to a fear of being served cat. But of course he was joking and that did not happen!


Noodles or rice?

Take a seat as your bowl is quickly grilled on what I call the Mega-grill. Mr James and I were lucky enough to be seated right next to the mega-grill so I got a great view. My food came to me in a large bowl and it tasted great!

Dinner for Date night

Ok Tulsa people, this girl wants to know where you go in (or near) Tulsa for an overnight with your sweetie.
Where do you go to dine? Favorite dish? Hotel?

Dance moves?


My son just turned on some music and said, "Ok, lets see your best dance moves!"
I looked up with a grin and raised eyebrows as he began to pretend he was Michael Jackson.
He showed me his best moonwalk as he whispered to himself, "moonwalk-".
He spun in circles, and just now tried to do the splits.

It was hard to get good pictures with my camera phone, but I posted them anyway.

I am getting my hair done today.....

  I really want highlights and have for some time.  I posted 3 pictures on my fb page to get some opinions.
Which one do you like?  Leave a comment below or on my fb page. Just follow the link.
