We had Son #1 and family here for Christmas and we had lots of fun! Son #1 has two of the sweetest, most polite, gentle teenagers I have met in a long time. It is so rewarding to see my own children raising such wonderful children.

Son #1 with Grandson #1, waiting for everyone to gather for opening presents.

Granddaughter #1, all ready for unwrapping presents.

Son #1 obliged by wearing the reindeer antlers--so cute!
Daughter-in-Law #1 looks pretty in her antlers with the pretty white bow!
And one of the best presents of all is that Son #1 helped Hubby finish rewiring for my new washing machine and it is all hooked up and being very much appreciated! I am not sure THEY enjoyed that part of Christmas evening, but I was very grateful!

I was sorry to see everyone leave this morning, but now my new washing machine is buzzing away with all the sheets and towels being washed, thanks to my sweet daughter-in-law who stripped the beds and gathered up all the towels before they left!


  1. Pat, your chidren and the most handsomest ever!! You are really blessed. ANd yay for a good washer! That's the best feeling I would have had too! Happy New Year!

  2. I enjoyed your post AND I love seeing your flower paintings on the wall in the first picture. Your paintings are WONDERFUL!!!

  3. What a wonderful gift - family - left for you to treasure this Christmas, and always.

    May the year to come be filled with blessings too numerable to count.
