Hello! Yes we are still alive. I had a long Christmas post written on my Ipad and then managed to delete it two weeks ago. I was sick about it and my regular computer has been not working well. Lucky me, Santa took really good care of me and I am back up operating.
Ahh, back to Christmas. We started our Christmas celebration at Denver's parents. They live on a lake and it is beautiful. We drove down Saturday night before Christmas and had Christmas on Sunday. This is what I saw outside my window that morning. Isn't it a pretty grey morning?
We had a fabulous Christmas with them. I got a new Ipad case that includes a keyboard which I managed to type out a whole post and delete it, a new sewing machine. I was pretty excited and didn't expect it. I have no idea what I am going to sew, but I have always wanted one. We even broke it out and used it to repair some pants for Denver when we got home. Now that we went to the trouble of setting it up, I am leaving it up. I am even considering sewing a cover, or maybe ordering one off Etsy. Ha! I am not lying, I did look to see just how much they were.
I also got a really cool Monogram necklace I have been wanting with my initials. I really like it and have worn it several times. Isn't it pretty? I promise it is even better out of the packaging.
My older sister, Tara, got both the boys Pottery Barn chairs with their names on them. They were so cute! This is Brycen with my other sister's dog. He can't decide if he wants to play his new toy or play with the dog.
Jilian is extremely happy with all her gifts if you can't tell!
Jude got some big gifts that he has to put together. We went in with my sister and bought him a deluxe Lego set. It was one of those presents you have to fight the Target crowd the night of Thanksgiving. And she drug it all the way from CA. Crazy I know...
All of us kids got my mom a new Ipad. Jilian and Thompson spent more time playing on it then she did the first few days. Jilian even had it all set up for her.
Even Strawberry Shortcake made an appearance this Christmas at my parents house! My mom has had this since I was a kid so it was a nice surprise to see.
Did you have a good Christmas?
