So here it is, nearly two weeks since Christmas, and I'm just getting around to posting pictures. The problem is simple. I am always busy preparing the meal and don't have time to take all the pictures myself, so I have at least four cameras sitting around and everyone takes pictures. Therefore, with that many people snapping photos, it takes me forever to sort through and get them ready for posting or printing. Anyway, here are just a few.
First, I will show the decorating around the house. I don't do much decorating these days, just enough. Seems like such a waste to drag everything out and decorate only to have it all come down in just a few weeks but here are a few things.
|I love our 7ft pencil tree! We have a small home and this tree doesn't take up lots of room. A Gnome couple keeps watch over my china hutch and the quilt rack becomes a Christmas card display.|
|The Advent calendar is a favorite of our grand daughter. She loves finding little treasures and candies behind each little door and then on Christmas morning, when she opens the last door, Baby Jesus lies waiting to be added...|
|I creeped down the hallway to see how he was doing with the dollhouse and this is what I found. I'm still not sure what he was doing but when he realized I was watching he...|
|...did this. Silly Papaw!|
|Christmas day our children and the grand daughter came over. Of course the reindeer antlers and red noses had to be worn. Can you tell she was excited about that? Yeah, me neither. LoL|
|Lots of presents for a special little girl. There is nothing better than watching a child open gifts! We spoil her, I'm not going to lie!|
|She got the beat!!! Unfortunately, I insist the drums stay out in the shop. I'm pretty sure something terribly tragic would happen if they were in the house. Granny likes peace & quiet! LoL|
|My daughter, son-in-love and of course the apple of our eye! Such a beautiful little family.|
|My #3 son and his fiance. I am so thankful for her. She helped me get all the food cooked and set up, not to mention she makes a killer coconut cream pie! We ♥ her!|
|To bring the day to an end, our self-taught-guitar-playing, son-in-love blessed us with Christmas music.|
Christmas 2014 has come and gone but the memories will be with us forever!
Grace & Peace to you and yours.
