Our first little Christmas/The one before our trip to Colorado

I am doing things a little backwards. Mabel and her family had Christmas here with us the day before I left for Colorado.  Mabel and her mom weren't feeling well.  Mabel ended up on antibiotics a few days later.  Which is a good thing since I ended up having streph .  I went to Urgent Care.  My goodness, when I feel better that trip can be a whole post another day.  We gave her this little writing tablet.  Dollar section at Target.  Such fun things to be found.
Here is Rudy.  He has gotten so big.  He just is like a mop.  He was a little naughty at our house.  He wouldn't quit barking at our dog and our youngest son.  Finally his mama had to hold him when we ate.  Rudy, you are a little stinker.
A family shot.  Those little boxes are American Girl Doll outfits.  Miss Mabel turned 6 this week.  Those are her birthday presents since her Christmas ones have never arrived.  I did find out that the only package not getting here was my etsy order.  Evidently my credit card numbers changes when they were renewed.  All of the things I waited and waited on never officially got ordered.  I used Pay Pal.  I never got a denial or anything.  The way I found out was going through all my purchases.  The numbers are changed now.  But this wasn't the case for the Etsy.  Still hoping that finds it's way here.  I really don't want to report the vendor.
 
 
I am pretty sure that M. took this picture.  He's pretty sneaky.  I was trying out my new camera as he was taking pictures on my old one.  He also deletes the ones he doesn't like.  Grammy doesn't like that.  I am enjoying seeing everyone's posts about the holidays and the New Year.
I am still on Christmas here.  I will catch up soon, I hope.
Until then Happy New Year.

What a beautiful family! I enjoyed your smiling picture, too cute. Strep throat...yuck. I know that was painful. I hope you get well soon. Don't wait too long to report if you have too, you only have so long. Have you contacted the shop owner about your items? If not I would do that right away. I hope you get everything very soon!

Mabel is a little cutie, and so is their pup! Too bad about all of your orders not arriving. I'll have to remember that when my cc is about to expire! Sorry to hear you've had strep, hope you are better now!

Oh, no...sorry your orders didn't make it...I've never heard of card #'s changing with renewal. hmmm , I'd better pay more attention.
I've always had good luck with Etsy and hope your vendor was just running behind.

What a great family you have there. My husband and I are starting our own family in the next 3 months and we are so blessed. We have twins on the way and so I think we are even more blessed than usual because having twins is such a rare thing. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful pictures, thanks.
