"A Spotty Christmas Photo"
Renee with Jack and Spotty (Steph's Rat Terriers)
We took Jessica and Renee back to the airport Monday, and after getting home about 2 pm, I slept for 16 hours! I wasn't feeling good, got the cold and ear ache back, and really needed some sleep! Felt pretty good today, but still not back to normal. Miss having the kids here, and now it is so quiet! But I feel so blessed to have had everyone home this Christmas. I'm sure there will be the day when we all can't get together. We know with work schedules, that next Christmas will be a challange, and we may be celebrating our Christmas on the New Years weekend. But that will be okey too. Now with the two older grandkids out in the working world and their partners, we have more families to work around too.
Showing us some of her dance moves!
Renee passed out all the gifts, and then decided to wear some of them.
I made all the big girls scarves. They were so nice and soft!
Leah got "Princess" sunglasses to wear when she's driving her
Mustang convertable next summer! (we're now looking for
a pair of glasses like that for little Renee. She wanted them
Jessica and Renee riding "Jack" later on Christmas day~
NO SNOW yet!
Our little princess got 3 princess outfits, and did she ever
love them. Wore them over everything, every day since Christmas
I had to sew them several times before she left. That
gift was sure a hit! She loved to twirl and dance!
After Christmas Jess and I worked on a Tshirt quilt for her out of a few of
her Volleyball and Basketball teams that she's coached at Catholic
High. Of course winning shirts from their state win last year.
I'm not done yet. So will show completed pictures later. It was
great having help with the ironing on of the interfacing and then I cut out the
12.5 inch squares. I have all the rows sewed together with black and
white polka dot strips, and now ready to sew the rows together.
Making a snow angel
Eating snow!!! Heehee! What kid doesn't like snow!
Renee and Amanda ~ Big hugs! or as they say "Tight-tight"
Throwing snowball at Mommy!
Working on old wooden puzzles that our girls had as kids.
Hope this isn't too many to post. Will pick out some more for another time. A new year started and I didn't make any resolutions. Probably should have, but didn't want to break them! Hope you all had a great Christmas too, and let's hope our New Year will be a great year.
