Our Christmas

Our Christmas was absolutely wonderful, I hope yours was too.  Spending time with family is always the best time ever.

After Church at my daughter's house, this is my gang. ( I totally LOVE all these people.)  Left to right - - -
Chuck (son) Sam (son-in-law) Kelly (daughter) Jill (grandsons's girlfriend) Andy (grandson) Kent (son) Jim (husband) Keith (grandson).

 Me with my children.  (I can't seem to get a picture with my eyes open)

 Having tons of snacks before a fabulous dinner of Ham and Chicken with all the sides.  Soooooo good.

My three children, the loves of my life.  I am totally blessed.
 After dinner we opened presents exchanged with the family, I was totally spoiled and got an Ipad, Decorative pillow, Christmas ornament and Silver Cloche serving tray.

Christmas morning we woke up to the most glorious day, warm and full of sunshine.

We still had a few presents to open that Santa left.

  Christmas morning, my two sons came over to have Santa Claus with us.  ( My husband had been helping a neighbor get a car started, so he hadn't changed clothes.  We wanted to open presents, so he was good enough for us.)

 As you can see, we had penty of presents and a lot of mess.  Santa left me some wonderful House shoes, a Cuisinart food processor and the boys gave us a new Garage Door Opener.  I love it, ours was not working.

 Everything put away and the room put back together.  Now I just have to take down the tree and pack everything up.

I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family and to have such precious memories of another Christmas together.

I hope yours was filled with Love and Memories too.
