Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone!!! I want to thank all of you for reading my humble ramblings all year. LOL. I am so thankful for all of my friends. Yes I consider all of you my friends whether or not we have talked or you just stop by to read. So I am hoping all of you are having a wonderful Christmas season.

I am sorry I have not posted since last week, but it has been hectic. It still is this morning as I type this. My daughter is making a pumpkin pie to take to my ex's family's house this afternoon. She learned how to make the crust and pie in her Foods and You class this school year. She is receiving some help from Steve as she has a difficult time with measurements. I am waiting to make my food for my Mom's house til she's done. My son is playing with all his new toys and of course had to change into his cool new clothes. LOL. I bought the jeans yesterday at the outlet mall while he was with me. I am so glad he realizes there is no Santa. It made things so much easier this year. Anyway, thought I would show you some of our Christmas this year.

So much for a white Christmas. It is raining and turning what snow we had into slick slush.



LOL I can laugh at myself. This is yours truly in rare form. Not only do I have my ratty robe on but my jammies too. Man I look tired in this picture. Hey this is me I am not a made up fancy type of person. I am a down to earth talk to anyone person.



This is my big present from Steve. My new settle bench. These pictures don't show the true color. It is a dark brown with of course our bubbly paint technique on it. Steve says he'll take orders. Ummm... doesn't come with the boy, but if you want him we can make a deal. LOL. I also got perfume, which I have never owned, and Bath and Body Works items.







My daughter getting her new camera that she guessed last week. GRRRRRR I was so mad. She loves to take pictures and make cards so I also got her a Hallmark card making computer kit too.



My son who mainly got toys and a few new Ohio State t-shirts and wallies for his room.



And of course Steve who got clothes and food. LOL. I found this great little Amish bulk food store about 15 minutes from my house so I got him pistachios and pumpkin seeds and also beef jerky. The clothes thing was difficult as he has really long arms and a Santa belly and is really tall LOL. I found that JcPenney has a Big and Tall section. Everything was on sale. Yippeee!!!!



So as not to keep you away from your family. From our home to yours Have a Blessed Merry Christmas!!!!!!
