Of course, there were plenty of Christmas celebrations as the older kids now have other places to be on the holidays as well. Our son and his girlfriend, came on Monday before Christmas as she was headed to spend Christmas day with her family. It was a nice visit with them although, she was tired from working all night the night before.
This is her and my father in law having a nice chat.
Here is our son opening his gift while dad watches. (For those that want to know, my husband's shirt says " I can get you on the naughty list". He loves it!)
My husband and his dad got matching hoodie jackets with their names on them. Very special gift!
Christmas Eve arrived with plenty of pretty lights and a tree that was ready to be the backdrop for Santa's work.
Here is just a portion of what Christmas morning looked like. Needless to say, Santa was very giving this year.
Of course, the grand doll was blessed beyond measure. After all, aren't kids what make the season so special?
We brought my mother in law home for the holiday. She was excited to be home and talked about all she intends to do when she gets home, but we are fairly certain she will never be able to return home permanently.
Papaw and his girl opening his gifts! Our farmhouse was full of paper and toys along with a few grown up presents.
We also celebrate a birthday following Christmas. My beautiful daughter, Bridget, celebrated with this beautiful cake that the granddoll picked out for her.
Now onto the celebrations tonight. We will be having pizza, hot wings, bread sticks, and a few other snack items and our neighbors will be here as well. We usually play cards and watch the ball drop while we are talking and enjoying our time together!
Happy New Year!!!!!
