Hubby made me a bread board and also a cheese board that is also inlaid; I love the purple heart wood that he used.
One of the creative projects I worked on for the girls was making greeting cards with the photos of Ireland that we took~I will post another day; I also made cards of Kauai that we took several years ago.
Hubby and I were also spoiled so much; we are so blessed by our family! Love each one to the moon and back!
On Christmas night we had dinner at Carrie's~oh was it good! We enjoyed just visiting and watching the kiddos play. We knew it was snowing, just didn't know that it was blizzard like outside.
WE got ready to leave and let's just say we were both very happy to be within a ten minute drive.
The weekend was pretty relaxed, I did go to Macy's and got a new pair of snow boots for every day use. My daily winter shoes(Merrills)were given to me 5 yrs ago, after my dear friend passed away. They fit me like a glove, but were already several years old, so it was time to upgrade. I got a great deal and I know they'll last me many years.
I'm looking at my week and it is pretty relaxed, except for one dental appointment on Wednesday. I think I'll take down all my decorations on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. Since our early years, we found that having everything put away by New Years lets us enter the New Year organized.
I hope you had a day filled with Joy and Love.
Oh boy! What a wonderful dayReplyDelete

So glad you had a good celebration and time with family. Yours sounds very similar to ours. We give gift cards to the older grands too as they really enjoy that soo much and is much easier for us. And your week coming up sounds very similar to mine minus the dental appointment, lol. I want to get all of our Christmas stored away before New Years Day though we might have to finish up some on that day too. Hope you have a wonderful week Noreen!ReplyDelete
I do enjoy hearing about your lovely grandchildren. Glad you had such a lovely Christmas and hope you and the family have a great New Year.ReplyDelete
Noreen, I am loving seeing all your grands opening gifts. They are at the sweet ages. So happy your day was special. New boots..that's good. I sure need to be looking for some. Blessings, xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
What joy to see the happiness on each of the sweet faces of your grandkids and children! Having two special Christmas mornings is pretty awesome for these kids! I'm glad you didn't have to drive far in the blizzard conditions too! Hope you do have a relaxed and wonderful week, those are always quite welcome after the busy-ness of the holidays! :)ReplyDelete
Your Christmas celebrations looks perfect,Noreen, I smiled all the way through! I enjoy seeing Christmas through the eyes of children! Making photos out of your vacations and giving as gifts is a great idea!ReplyDelete
I agree, we try and have all decorations packed away by Jan. 1st, I also tae the week after Christmas to reflect and plan for the New Year!
Wishing you and your family a most blessed and Happy new Year!
Hugs from me to you,
Love the photos and it looks like Christmas Eve morning was a perfect celebration with your family.ReplyDelete
