THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS!!!




I thought that this picture pretty much describes how I feel!! POOPED, TIRED and just plain worn out.

Melli let me know that I was way behind in blogging!! Course i already knew that but have been so busy!!

We had a great Christmas!! We very awaken about 6:30 Christmas morning by kids saying that Santa had come!! We knew of course that we would have to wake up early on Christmas morning. We were at our daughter's home so that we could see the grandkids open up their Christmas things.

The tree was filled with gifts everywhere around it. In front were two electric scooters that Santa had brought. Madison got a purple one and Garrett got a red little motorcycle!! They were thrilled to death!! We let them go ahead and open. Then we stopped and my casserole was done by then. We all ate breakfast. We could see evidence of SAnta...the cookies were half eaten and outside we saw parts of carrots that the reindeers had eaten...!!

After eating we went back to gifts for the adults. Our oldest daughter called about then so we all talked to everyone there in Illinois!! So nice to talk to our family!! We miss everyone every year!!

Finally back to the gifts!! We had a great time and people were happy with everyone's picks for them. I love watching people open gifts!! That is just FUN for me!!

We just rested most of the day!! Later on in the afternoon Becky and Roger's neighbors came over for more food!! After eating and then doing some more cleaning up, we decided it was time for the old folks to go home!!

We came home and put the movie, "WE ARE MARSHALL" into the DVD player. That is a good movie and I really recommend it. I don't know if you remember the football team from West Virginia in 1970. They were all killed when their plane went down. We both thought it was a good movie.

Today we have just been mostly at the malls. I received a lot of gift certificates!! I still have most of them as I did not spend them yet!! I also had to work this afternoon so that is another reason i have not been blogging!! i sort of need to be home!! smile!!

Well that catches everyone up!! Just exhausted like this little tired baby at the top of my blog!

We have been greatly blessed this holiday season!! We have so much not just material things but love in this family!! I am blessed!!

Sandy,

Sounds like you all had a great day! I LOVE this little snowman nativity in your blog...is it yours? It's so unique!

Glad the kids had fun with their scooters. I love it that you get to be there and see them open their gifts.

I'm praying for you and that you DO get a little rest here. Seems like you're always on the go.

Love ya!

:-) Susan

P.S. I loved We Are Marshall!

Awwwww! You guys had a GREAT Christmas! I LOVE when Christmas can just be relaxed and layed back and no rush rush rush! Those scooters are QUITE impressive! I would like one of them myself! I bet they had a GREAT time riding them! Luz hasn't gotten to ride her bike yet - the weather has not been cooperating... *sigh* Okay - I'm off to bed now.

The picture of the baby wearing only a diaper and a stocking cap brought a smile to my face. Yep, he looks pooped, tired and just plain worn out. I feel the same way, lol.

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas.

Hey Sweetie....sounds like a fun way to spend with family. We are home now and I'm enjoying the down time. Christmas was pretty low key for us...mom enjoyed having company or it would have been a very lonesome time for her. Miss you!

Those are cool scooters. I'm sure the kids were thrilled. I love watching children open their presents on Christmas.
