Airport Not So Good

So, MIL arrived just fine yesterday afternoon. The trip to the airport from our house went well, not too much traffic or any delays. The plane arrived early. Son and I thought we were at the correct terminal baggage area to meet her. No. We went back and forth on the terminal shuttle train twice before we figured out the right way. Then to add to the adventure, we couldn't figure out the right parking lot to retreive the car. It was unbelievable. The airport has 5 terminals now, up from 4, to squeeze in as much humanity as possible. Not a fun time. Hubby got a kick out of the story when he checked in last night. He, of course, knows all the horror stories with his travels worldwide. He's a sick man.

Today son and grandma will go to "King Kong" and then we'll go to dinner. I have decided to drop them off and come back home for a final wrapping session. Then I'll pick them up and we'll eat. MIL and I have had a relaxing morning visiting and catching up. She gave me my Christmas gift early - an old slide bracelet she had made for herself in her younger years and she no longer wears regularly. It is lovely and I plan on wearing it often. A fob hangs from the end of it that was once a part of a piece of jewelry owned by her father. She collected the charms over the years before she had enough to have a bracelet made.

Not much else this morning. Keeping it really calm and quiet around here. That's how I like it!

Merry, Merry Christmas. Happy Chanukah.

We did some last minute shopping, mainly for my dad. My brother needed a new suit to wear Sunday. He is singing at church Christmas morning and since his 60 pound weight loss this year had nothing that fit. Already he is concerned about getting all the things back into the suitcase for his flight to Europe.

Have a great Christmas Eve and Christmas.
