We had such a nice Christmas and it sounds like most of you did as well. I know there are some that didn't for one reason or another. So, I hope for the coming year that this will be a good year for all.
Even though I like to keep Christmas simple and it isn't all about the presents.......my pictures seem to be. I love the expressions on the little ones faces.
We were missing our daughter and her family but we were able to skype. Our little guy was so excited. He got a new fire truck that squirts water. He pretend squirted us for 20 minutes. We acted like we were getting wet and he thought that was so funny. I had to include the one below........that look on his face. My daughter thought I was crazy for taking pictures. I wanted to be able to share how we got to see them. She doesn't get the blogging thing.
His big sister showed us her latest dance routine. She kept knocking over gifts and bumping into the tree or just go completely out of the range. Love this picture of her and her dimples.
She got to have the day out with her mom yesterday and got to go pick out her American Girl Doll from Grammy and Grampy. (my money find was well used)
The marshmallow shooter was a big hit until Miss Mabel got her skin caught in it and her dad had to take the gun apart to get it out. Grammy was so upset that I had bought this. So beware if you get one. Do not load it against your tummy, esp. if you are three.
We played Headbandz. I want to find the Disney version. Grampy got this necklace and the flag needlepoint pin from his granddaughters. He got the turkey card. Had to have a picture of that.
See we did do something other than presents. Luckily my husband saved the holidays by going to the grocery. Actually he went to Honey Baked Ham and loaded up on meat and sides since I wasn't up to the grocery. (Steroids are gone, headaches are still here. Waiting to see what Dr. Glitter has planned next. I don't want to see him again but can't see anyone else right now.)
All in all it was such a peaceful wonderful time. We are still enjoying our Colorado kids. We have Grampy's birthday and Mabel's birthday coming up. And did I tell you.....WE HAVE LOTS OF SNOW.......And that my friends, makes me happy. (Sorry Mr. Cozy,I don't like that you have to drive in it and I worry about you......but I think it is so magical)
SO, THERE IT IS CHRISTMAS 2012. IT'S A WRAP.
