Christmas #3

Our third and final Christmas was on Christmas day.  Since our family Christmas was over, we were delighted that we could have our granddudes, Preston and Triston, here again on Christmas day while their parents painted and decorated a gaming room for them.  (They stayed two days too!)  The room was to be their Christmas present!  Like I mentioned in an earlier post, due to work schedules, they couldn't work on the room until Christmas day which was quite alright with us! 

We picked up the boys on Christmas morning and went to see Mom at the nursing home.

We took some fun Santa hats with us!

The boys with Great Gram.

And with Mimi.

We switched some of the hats around too.
George's hat blinks!

Sweet Preston.

Of course, we had to take some silly pictures! 

Doesn't everyone use 
a hat for a microphone?
Mom got a kick out of it.

Some serious pics too.

Group photo!
I love it!
We had the best time and Mom really 
enjoyed it which is the most important part.

Even better, it was snowing outside and this 
was the scene on 377 headed to the house.
Anyone who knows me knows that I 
was thrilled by our white Christmas! 

It was a very special and spectacular Christmas day!  I loved it and will cherish the memories.  

We hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright!
And that your 2013 is better than ever!

Blessings and Many Smiles to You All,

Christmas #2

The second Christmas was at Mom's nursing home on the 18th.

There were lots of presents.

Mom and Linda

We gave Mom our presents in her room after the big nursing home celebration.

Mom with one of her gifts.  She loves puzzles!


The three of us!

George and I bought a few more pieces of living room furniture so I've decided to paint the dark wall in the living room yellow to match the other walls.  It's a much happier color!  I might paint a smaller wall (where the French doors are) with the same dark color I'm painting over here but, at this point, I'm not sure.  I do want to get it done before the furniture is delivered tomorrow though so here I go!

Smilingly Yours,
