I thought I'd share some pictures of my Christmas decor, the unwrapping of gifts and visiting family.
Our Christmas tree that sits in the corner of the mantel.
The fireplace with a collection of my Santas
The hutch that once belonged to
my mother-in-law displays
more snowmen and snowladies.
The view from the dining area
my 'coffee table' with a tray filled
with pinecones, potpourri and faux berries
The stockings filled to the brim!
My two daughters--Jackie (in red)
Valerie playing Santa
Even Molly got a present!!
My brother-in-law, Gary, slicing
the prime rib--a tradition every year.
My sisters and me--L to R--Sherri, Me,
my Mom and Heidi holding pinecone
ornaments that I made for them.
My brother Wayne and I, holding framed photos
My brother Andrew and I sharing a laugh
Jackie and Kayla (my neice)
My husband Michael got a 12 foot hand-
crafted rod from Gary.
Well, that's a few pictures out of about 150 that I took. Unfortunately, I didn't get any family photos of all of us together. It was a great day even though it was the first Christmas without my dad. He was there in spirit though. We know that.
Thanks for stopping by!
