The Christmas Eve eve GRAND Social link party for grandparents

I find it hard to believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Even harder to believe is that I think I'm ready for The Big Day except for a bit of this and that, meaning stocking stuffers and such.

The final prep was the focus of my weekend. I did the last of my gift and grocery shopping on Friday. Jim, Brianna and I enjoyed a holiday visit with my dad and stepmom on Saturday. On Sunday, I wrapped all the gifts — yes, all the gifts as I'd not yet wrapped a single one for under my tree, only those I'd shipped for under my grandsons' tree. And Sunday evening, I welcomed Andrea home. Hooray for my baby girl staying at my house through the holiday.

Prepared for Christmas

Yep, I think I'm ready for Christmas except for a few minor details.

One of those details is hosting this week's GRAND Social. Thank you for joining me for GRAND Social No. 84 on this fine Christmas Eve eve.

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:


<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
