Merry Christmas

                   From our family to yours,

     Have a very Merry Christmas and a
                         blessed New Year and 
                 remember the reason for this 
                               holiday season.

                      Happy Birthday Jesus!

                                                A few memories of Christmas 2011.

Christmas Morning 2011

The best two words I know.


Mike has a taste for everything retro.  Something about reliving his childhood.  ha!
He got these "retro Christmas robots" last year (never thought I'd have an occassion
to use those three words together).  

I saw this idea on Pinterest and my sweetie made it happen for a Christmas party.
Still trying to find an excuse for not taking them down.  Valentine's Day possibly?
Maybe he could add a few pink balls.  :-)

This year I asked Mike to make me for
Christmas, 2 magnetic chalkboards to
hang in my breakfast nook.  I love them.
My favorite gift from him.

I also saw these candy dish stands on Pinterest and Mike made them for
me for Christmas.  I plan to use them again for Valentine's Day.
He also made a white one so I may get to use them for 4th of July (if I only
had a blue one).  Sweetie!

I try to display Christmas cards thoughtout different places in our house.
My favorite are the picture cards.  I didn't get to make one this year which
I'm very sad about, however I have a fantastic idea for next year.  Yes, I'm
already planning next year.

This is something you won't see often (as in never).  Mike does most things but
he doesn't cook but he was great and pitched in for Christmas brunch.

Dylan got twin revolvers from us.  Poppy's favorite and Dylan
liked it pretty well himself.

My sweet big baby grandgirl.

Kelly and Matt weren't able to make it this year so the day after Christmas,
as in 3:30 am, I hopped in my car and headed up to see them for a couple
of days.  It was a long, long, long drive but so worth it.

I love this photo of Brody, in his camo playing with his sister's stocking stuffers.
He gives equal opportunity to all toys. 

And an additional little bonus to my trip was waking up the first morning
after I arrived to this.  It only lasted a few hours, but for this Florida
girl, what precious hours they were.
