Christmas Day BBQ at Mama’s

  Mama Christmas 2014 003Christmas at Mama’s is real different now. Mama has 4 sons. Mark lives in Saudi Arabia, Lance  lives in Japan, Craig lives in Forrest City, AR, and I live in Morrilton, AR, where Mama moved to. Her eight grandchildren live in Nebraska, Florida, Georgia, Montana and Arkansas. It is impossible for us all to get together. But, the ones that can go to Mama’s on Christmas day. This year it was brother Craig, his wife Leslie, their daughter Katy, herMama Christmas 2014 001 boyfriend Zack, Emma the dog, and me. We ate BBQ. Well, they ate BBQ. My stomach would let me eat that, so I brought Chex Mix and chowed down. After lunch we sat in the living room and opened presents. I got the usual stuff from Mama and a Garvin GPS. I was thrilled. She said I needed help just getting back home to my house. LOL! Of course there was the annual check, an amaryllis bulb, a can of cookies, 2 can Diet Cokes and a box of turtles. Craig and Leslie gave me a sack of popcorn and popcorn oil. I love popcorn. And Craig knows how to make the best. We just visited and visited had a great time. Craig doesn’t like for me to have his picture on my blog , so I blacked out his eyes!
