It's a wrap, 2015 Christmas

Christmas is once again over.  Our decorations will stay up for a couple more days.  I am actually looking forward to boxing them up and to start decorating without them.  Hoping to get some pictures on the walls. 
K. Bug got a phone and a selfie stick for Christmas.  We didn't know she got it until all of a sudden she comes in the room with it.  It was so funny.

 Our son and his wife and Miss Mabel.  Our son was not feeling well.  Miss Mabel had her hair all pretty to go to church on Christmas eve.
Her brother's hair always looks prefect.
 Miss Mabel got a Grace doll. She looked shocked that she got it at our house instead of Christmas morning.
 K. got a Mary Ellen doll and Goose got a desk for Kit.
And here is K. with the selfie stick, hah.
These girls would gladly stay in the jammies all day long.  And then there is the telescope.  You should have seen Grampy and our DIL putting it together.
Poor Goose is exhausted.
We were missing these cuties  this year.  They got lots of snow in Colorado. 
And last but not least is our youngest son Chris and his girlfriend and her son Michael.
Now, the fun begins.  Returning to normal post holiday takes me awhile.  It has been a busy last couple of months.  But, we survived the move then Christmas.
I hope that your Christmas was full of joy.  There always is some sadness and some is hard to over come.  The holidays seem to bring on hope for the new year for us all.

Hi Debby, it looks like a lovely Christmas at your new house. I can't believe how much Miss K. grew. She looks so grown up.

Wishing you Happy New Year with Good Health, Peace, Joy, Love and Contentment in your new home.

What a lovely family gathering--especially with those grands! I've started on AG doll clothes and accessories for my Rosebud when she gets big enough--with a head start I might actually have them ready in a couple of years, lol! Wishes for many more happy gatherings in your new homestead!

I've been behind on blog reading. Wishing you belated Christmas with extra hugs. Your family pictures are so precious. I'm loving every minute home with the girls during our break. We finally got our snow (along with an ice storm). Looking forward to visiting the Aframe for New Years. Happy New Year!

Hi Debby ~ it looks like you had a nice Christmas. I don't blame your granddaughters for wanting to stay in their pajamas - I could do that all day, too! You asked where my son works (I had mentioned in my blog post that he had to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas until 2 a.m.)...he is a full-time student at a university and he works part-time at a liquor store right near campus. They are open 24/7. Ridiculous, I know. My husband is a 911 dispatcher so I'm used to him working a lot of holidays. This year, he had off for Christmas Eve and Christmas, but 2016 he will be working both days - 12 hour shifts.

You are on-spot that Christmas can also bring sadness which can be hard to overcome. Even though I had a good Christmas, there is always the glaring reality that my oldest son, Phil is not with us anymore. (He passed away 6 years ago at the age of 21.)

Hi Debby, enjoyed seeing your family's holiday celebration and all the grandkids gifts. Yes, I agree that staying in jimmies is wonderful and kids definitely have the right idea. Christmas can hold its share of sadness too as we remember loved ones no longer with us to celebrate, but we take joy in sharing happiness with those we love. Thanks for your comment showing our grandkids celebrating Christmas. I sent you a separate email to address a couple of the questions you had asked. (No, our VA house remains unsold and yes, we do live now in an apt in NH and yes are closer to family in New England.)
