Merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you had a beautiful day with your family, celebrating the birth of our Savior–and of course, sharing in some traditions made wonderful just by being with those you love. We had a fantastic day! As each child grows the fun of Christmas gets greater.
Our Christmas at HomeMy little artist got a “how to draw” book. Laelia and Willow both received crocheted ballerinas. I purchased them from a fabulous lady on Etsy. Please check her out when you have a chance! She did a beautiful job and I received each of them (which I purchased separately) within 4 days of ordering!
Their new tent made by mama and daddy. I found this fabulous, easy to follow tutorial here. Chloe had asked Santa for an ornament to replace one of mine that Willow broke and, go figure, he brought it for me!
Mama got a serger! Woohoo! I’m running out of room in my sewing/craft area. I think it’s time for a craft room makeover! 😉
So, Christmas at the inlaw’s (whom I just love) involves lots of love and gifts, plenty of fellowship, and gifts of weaponry and Steelers stuff. Last year, Scott got a gun he really wanted. This year, a machete. Rifles and cross bows were also given and then the men gathered on the lanai to check out each other’s handsome new arms.
The afternoon was spent at home, playing with toys and making crafts (a gift from Gramps and Oma–Thanks, guys!!!)….and resting! In the evening we gathered together with our extended family and had dinner and fellowship with one another. We exchanged gifts, hugs, and enjoyed one another’s company. It is so nice to see those we love who live so far away. I hope your Christmas was special and filled with new memories of those you love!
