The best Christmas gifts this year didn't come in a package.
They traveled by plane.
My sister and parents came just to see us.:)
Of course there was sushi eating...
Lots of wrapping...
and gift exchanging.
Gourmet breakfasts (and lunch and dinner) were shared.
Tiny pancakes were made for Ruby...
and she promptly headed for a nap afterward.
If napping were a sport she'd win a gold medal. (smile)
Such a treasure from my little Katie! Created in art class and kept a secret for months.
Santa brought a keyboard for the girls.
Must get them started on lessons soon.
Candyland was played with real candy.
Special rules for when Grandma and Ba are here.
Love this tradition they started when the girls were little.
Grandma Patty sent petit fours from Neiman Marcus.
Red for almond and green for mint.
My Mom carried a gingerbread house kit on the plane!
The delivery was a gift in itself.
Searching for snacks. A good sign. After our scare earlier that month we weren't sure if she'd still be here with us. Happy to say she is doing well today. (Hope I look this good when I'm almost 100.)
10 Days in the USA. Fun game, but not easy! You really have to think. Good thing my sister bought Moose Munch to keep us focused.
Napping by the fire is what winter is all about. So blessed to have a husband willing to keep us cozy every night.
We enjoyed a few meals at our favorite restaurants.
For you Duggar fans, that's Josh and Anna Duggar on the left at the next table.
Katie and her bestie.
Picture before going in to see the Hobbit.
Those spiders were ca-Razy!
And Smaug. How do they make him looks so real??
New Year's Eve
These photo props are priceless!
Even my parents got in on the fun.
My sweetie and I did, too.
I look a bit loony/drunk/crazed but my husband's dimples are fabulous.
He's one handsome guy.
And he's all mine.:)
