Ours was great. The whole day was just fun, relaxed, and filled with laughter.
Just a sampling of our morning.
The kids made out like bandits. We had gifts from his parents, gifts from "Secret Santas" from church, from each other, and from Santa. Then we went to my mom and dads and got spoiled some more.
A few things I got: Jewelry. I got necklaces. A necklace you can string beads through. One bead says "mother" one says "faith" and the other is blue like sapphire. Kristin got us a mother/daughter set. Very pretty. I got The Golden Girls on DVD from my MIL. Already started watching it. hehe.
This is a closer look at the tile Ryan made for me. A big deal since he absolutely hates getting his hands messy.
I am only going to
bore you with share a couple more pictures as I felt these ones were truly special. I was getting trigger happy with my camera, and my brother was...errr...."loosened up" so he was more than willing to pose with my kids. (He says he is too ugly!) And I loved every second of this!
Emily and Uncle Mike
Kristin(my love bug) and Uncle Mike--this is actually where the fun started.
I think this one is my favorite.
We also got a "snowball fight" in a can from Rich's mom. She crocheted "snowballs"...10 I think for each of her kids and their families and sent them off for a Christmas Eve gift. They are poofy snowballs. We had a blast tossing them around. A couple went missing. I think they melted. ;) It was a super smart fun gift.
Tomorrow I am going to be showing my craftiness off. And on Friday for the last part the 2011 Review Extravaganza I will
boring you with sharing more Christmas pictures.
So how as your Christmas???
