Christmas 2015 Review....

On Christmas Eve we celebrated Christmas with 3 of my 4 kids.  It was a total BLAST and a SUCCESS!!!

Then the next 2 days we just laid around! lol >>> Even Daisy Mae got worn out from all the Christmas Eve excitement!
My nephew and nieces got their Christmas presents and sent this cute shot of them getting it! :)
They sent me a Starbuck's card and my daughter an iTunes card... but she doesn't use iTunes and I don't use Starbuck's much these days... so we traded... we each got a $25 gift card now to enjoy and USE!!!!

Here is a candid shot of my oldest son DL.. with Kayla and CJ :)
It is such a precious shot to me I wanted to share it... fun family times with a toddler giving kisses is sooo sweet!

DL made me a dimensional canvas with my 2016 theme featured on it...
And I LOVE It!!!!  He is very creative and rarely does he use those skills these days ... so I was happy to know the creative spirit hasn't left him! :)

This is what I sent him to inspire something completely different
 but featuring teal and orange my fave colours :)

Then Kayla presented me with a wrapped booklet of some sort... what could it be???
A personalized (made just for me!!!!) calendar she made using pics of all of CJ's life... and those in his life too!

On July she even featured me for my birthday !!!!  I will be 50 this year folks :)
Grammy K is me!!!  I love this page the most...

And this cool calendar has found a place for now in my sewing room... maybe I will mount both items in there... hmmmm  Probably yes.. but must consort with my honey over this decorating plan and just how to lay it out on the wall to look most visually appealing :)

Here are a couple shots of my youngest 2 kids... while they were celebrating with family on Christmas Day :)

Mike is 21... he is quite the jokester in the family and hammed it up on this second photo! :)

He and Brandi have a great relationship though and for that I am very happy !!!

He lives not far from us and stays busy with work.. and just being an independent young man!















Now many things I "got" for Christmas were timed with when they were needed... like the wonderful computer I upgraded to in August of this year... my honey bought this for me from his featherweight sales profits...
Dell has EXCELLENT customer service and support... I have been most pleased with this purchase as well... but my honey didn't stop there! lol

He also got me a cool wireless Bose speaker to go with the new computer!!!!
It is little as you can tell by the paperback book posed with it... that is my current FAVE READ!!!  I love learning more about Australian culture too... this book shares a bit of that and a great adventure too!

It was wonderful to have most of my kids with me for Christmas Eve .. and to have Christmas Day as a nice quiet relaxing day to appreciate the birth of our Savior.  Maybe this will be our new "tradition"???

I didn't get to see James or Kaydence... they remained in Tennessee and James' work is very taxing so a trip either way just wasn't working out!  But Kaydence did get her quilt and her parents LOVE IT!!!!  I will post more about that soon ;)

I have lots of fun projects coming up ... ending this year with some UFO finishes and starting some fun new projects as well!  Hope you will take time to sign up and follow along with me... 

As always your comments to my posts are definitely desired!!! :)

I do hope however long you get to enjoy Season you make sure to also....

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. We are taking things slow around our house.... 2 adults being sick is interesting with 2 kids. At least we were down for the count in bed on different days. Now to keep the kids outside so we can enjoy peace and quiet inside =)
