...and the three grand-daughters posed.
Christmas Eve dinner is served at my parents home and Santa paid us a visit again.
After dinner, we head home where the kids sprinkle Reindeer Food on the lawn. My brother in law has made this to send home with our kids since Shaggy was a small boy. My niece Rachel has taken over this very important task.
Now...BEFORE I got this shot,
I was treated to this one. Three things to look at:
1. Lollipop Pop looks grossed out and disgusted.
2. Shaggy looks guilty as all get out.
3. Sugar Plum Fairy is trying her hardest to smile at the camera.
I will leave what just had happened to your imagination.
You are welcome.
After spending Christmas morning at home with just us, we were able to visit with Hubby's Mom and his other sister's family. I took NO pictures, but we had a lovely time. Our two nephews have grown into very special young men.
Christmas night is spent again at my parents' house. This is when we read the Prayer for Children and feast on turkey sandwiches and relax. If you look closely, you can glimpse an elf delivering gifts.
Now, I included this picture, not to watch my sister open a gift, but to offer a glimpse at the nuttiness that is my family...that is my husband watching with a golden star garland on his head.I love that my teenage nephew is so patient and kind with his 7 year old cousin. He is assuring her that she CAN read his book on becoming a sports' journalist.
I love that my Mom has a door on which she measures every child who has entered her home over the years...
We were very blessed to be able to be with so many people we love and make us laugh. It was a great Christmas indeed.
