I had a wonderful Christmas with my family - my youngest son, my older son, my DIL, the three grands, my MIL, and my sweet hubby. We had the traditional dinner here. My three grandchildren came in ready to have Santa the moment they came through the door. I told them we had to wait on Papa to come back from the store. Yes, I sent him to buy forgotten rolls! He came back empty handed as the stores were closed. (Brookshires, Krogers and Walmart) I was not disappointed. To tell you the truth, I was impressed. I'm so glad all the stores in our area closed their doors so all their employees could celebrate Christmas with their families. Anyway, while the ham and sweet potatoes were cooking, we went ahead and let the children open their gifts. It's so fun to have children in the house at Christmas. I am so thankful that my son and his family are back here in Texas now. They lived in Michigan for 6 years and I missed my son so much. But, when the babies started coming, I really missed all of them. The youngest grandchild is now a year old and he is a Texan. They have been back down here now for 2 years and I hope they never leave Texas again. (Unless, I go too) I gave Trent, the youngest, a quilt for Christmas. I started this sometime ago. I changed the colors about half way through because my DIL changed the colors in his bedroom. I showed the flimsy but here's a pic of the finished item...I think this one turned out pretty cute.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year. Til next time....
