Our Christmas

 Good Morning Dear Friends,  I hope you had a blessed and joyous Christmas!  Ours was so much fun and many memories were made.  We began with presents, as you can see the kiddos loved them.  We then had lunch but this year was so much more relaxed than other years; I think it will be repeated for many years to come.  I had two Christmas games for the adults/families and this was fun too.
 After lunch the girls, all adorned in ballet wear, followed a video on the basics of ballet.  It was so precious to see them participating, all except the babies and the two year old.

 While the girls did ballet, the boys all got into Nerf wars.  It was a fun activity that even the men enjoyed and it gave the boys some of their own fun.
A high vantage point, all the better the hit the target from.  After this, two families went home for rest time and later we met up back at Kim's for dessert and games.  The younger kids watched Sound Of Music and the adults and boys played games.  What a delightful day and evening!  I think the kids would agree that this was the best Christmas ever.
We didn't have a white Christmas this year because our weather was absolutely fabulous! 
How was your Christmas?  What made it special?  Did you have nice weather or were you among the many throughout the states that were kept inside.
Hugs to you today.


  1. You Christmas sounds a lot like mine (o:
    We are so blessed.
    It is suppose to get really cold at the end of the week...are you ready for that? Do you have plans for New years Eve?

  2. Good Morning Noreen! Your Christmas looks and sounds Divine!! I LOVE your pics!! Your g-kids are just adorable!!

    We had the best Christmas ever I believe! Just to be together was such a gift! Our weather was cold and during the day we had the tiniest of snow flakes in the
    air. It felt like a kiss from the Lord!!

    Love you

  3. Hi Noreen!! Your Christmas looks and sounds like one that made lots of memories that will be treasured!!

    Mine was a quiet and relaxing one...A good day!! We totally dodged the snow-bullet in my part of Virginia--I had hoped we wouldn't!

  4. Hi Sweetie!

    Looks like you all had a wonderful Christmas and I'm sooo glad you had great weather! Ours was good too...all the way around. I closed the shop thru this Wednesday and am really enjoying the break! My hunters left this morning for a couple of days! Hopefully they'll bring back some yummy venison! I am enjoying some fun time with the girls and doing some cleaning on my work bench, and will watch one of my fave chick flicks tonight...Sabrina with Julia Ormond and Harrison Ford. It is, however, freezing here!!! Me not likey!! The sun is shining though, so I'll get through it! LOL!! Went to Blue Springs today with Bird to see some of the 267 manatees that were counted this morning! Crazy! I'll post some pics soon!

    Love you so much, dear friend!!
    Big hugs,

  6. Our Christmas was a lot like, family and fun and the weather was great, but it sounds like we are in for some cold and maybe snow by the end of the week.

  7. Your Christmas sounded wonderful. Ours was enjoyable and the weather was mild, but I hear a Canadian cold front is on its way with some cold temps and snow for sledding. Have a blessed week........Denise

  8. What a delightful Christmas! Christmas isn't the same without children around. Those ballerinas are too cute for words.
    Wishing you all the best for the rest of this festive season.

  9. What a wonderful Christmas you had ... what fun you all had ... but then, Christmas with the grands is the best way to spend it, isn't it? ;-)

    Wishing you a blessed week leading up to the New Year.
