T Stands for Tuesday New Year

Hello again my Tuesday FRIENDS! 
I'm late showing up again :( 
I'm still in Illinois with my parents. 

Dad is back in the hospital again with pneumonia caused by aspiration. He did not get as sick this time and should be coming home tomorrow. He went in Thursday evening. 
Mom and I have been staying at the house since we both have very bad colds and didn't want to risk making him sicker. We are both feeling better today.
 My sister and my nephew have been staying with Dad at the hospital. 

Christmas Day here was good. Here's a photo of Mom and Dad on that day.
He was feeling very good that day. 
This is my two oldest grandsons with Dad.
...and this is my daughter with the  Rainbow Mandala Throw I made her for Christmas.
I drove home the Friday before Christmas to have Christmas with Bob's kids and the babies on Saturday. Then drove back up to my parents on Sunday.
It didn't take the babies long to get into the spirit of opening presents.

 It was a good Christmas in spite of all of the illness. 
I will be staying here at least until the weekend and we'll see how things are going then. My work has been generous with giving me time off but I'm not sure how much longer that will last. 
Some Random thoughts for the New Year.

Since I didn't think yo take a new drink photo, I'm recycling one I've used before.
Thanks for stopping by and may each and every one of you have a
