Christmas Day

These are the wonderful gifts I recieved from my Grandson. He has a talent! The apron was painted with his own little hands. Homemade gifts are so special!
Speaking of homemade gifts, Linda sent me the most wonderful package. I have to confess I did NOT wait til Christmas...that is another story. Here is what she sent me. Lovely pot holders. Also, a potato bag to create wonderful baked potatoes in the microwave (not pictured)And would you look at this. It says "Pieces From Me" with beautiful applique and beading.
Inside was a gorgeous label and the first page of my new quilt journal including a picture of my previous blog header.She also made a beautiful angel, which you can spy on the mantel behind the picture of my family on the last post. Thank you Linda!!
My Prime Rib turned out great and we had a quiet dinner with our son and his wife.
The kids had an awesome Christmas morning. Kyle's funding came through on Christmas Eve so he can return to work (Thank you GOD!!) the Monday after he sees the doctor. He also got a new cell phone with his own number. He will have to pay his share of the bill on our plan monthly, but the phone and activation fee was a gift. He was THRILLED!
Charlotte loved her doll and accessories. She shows little emotion so it is hard to read her, but she has played non stop with "Gracie" so I am assuming she was happy with her.
Now Zachary...poor kid. Imagine being 6 years old, it is Christmas and you wake up at 3:30 am with the stomach flu! The kid threw up every 1/2 hour for several hours. (He was fine by lunch time) He had a 101* fever, but did not let that keep him from enjoying the morning. Remember his rationalization of how Jesus would want him to have a Nintendo DS? Well the video is very dark, but you get the idea. And this is WITH the tummy flu!!! Hope you all had as exciting a Christmas as Zachary...minus the flu!

Good news about Kyle.
Glad Charlotte seems to enjoy Gracie. Poor Zachary, but he seems to bounce back.
All your gifts are lovely Bren.
