The Annual Heal Christmas Party
A few years after I moved out, one Christmas I brought all my friends back to my parents house, Dad played the organ, Mom had out treats and we all sang the same carols that I did as a kid.
When Chris and I moved in together, our first Christmas was also as new home owners, so of course, the Heal Christmas party began. This year we continued on for our 11th.
It was a quiet year. A lot of other events seemed to be happening and took some of our regulars to other places that night. But while I missed seeing some, I still enjoyed visiting with others. Sure, I kinda wish I had an organ and piano in my living room cuz I can sing a mean Rudolph....but I really enjoy celebrating the season with friends and family.
This was a weekend packed with Christmas festivities. Friday a lunch at work, Friday night Chris' staff Christmas party, Saturday lunch with Dave, Sue and Gumpmom and Saturday night at our place. To say the least, I was pooped on Sunday morning, but a Bailey's coffee to start the day kept me going.
