Merry Christmas My Friends

Christmas time has been so hectic this year.  Did anyone else feel like that?  It seemed to just sneak up on me and I struggled to get it all done.  DD2 came home and it has been a whirlwind week to be sure.  On Wednesday we went shopping together and finished up some last minute shopping.  Then she invited her friend Andy over and we made Christmas cookies.  He comes over every Christmas and makes cookies with us.

Then DD1 and her BF made cake pops. I kept bugging for some but she made me wait. When I got up in the morning this was waiting for me.

She is so sweet! Then Jack was showing his Christmas spirit too

My DH wanted to go to Frankenmuth so on Friday we loaded up the car and he, DD2 and I all spent the day in Frankenmuth. One of DD2's friends even met us there for dinner.

Somehow I managed to get everything done, all the food made, the house cleaned up and time spent with my family and suddenly it was Christmas eve day and we headed off to my BIL and SIL's beautiful home to celebrate with DH's family.

We always bring something for the little kids to do and this year we brought 2 gingerbread house kits. Kids and adults alike seemed to have fun.

This year my father and sister joined us. We all had a great time, thanks Mark and Jackie for opening up your beautiful home to us. (I spent 2 hours the night before embroidering a dish towel for her as a thank you for hosting!)

This is my family! Including my dad, sister and DD1's BF.

Christmas morning and we woke up to a visit from Santa, our stockings were full!

The stockings were hung...

I even got 12 new bobbins and a great pair of scissors!

Then we opened gifts and ate great food. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and had time to spend with family and friends too.

From my family to yours Merry Christmas!!

Your Christmas sounded like it was as much fun as ours. We still have one more family celebration tonight but I don't mind it going on a while longer.
