Christmas At The Little Brown House..
Hope you had a wonderful Holiday
We had a great time here at the LBH
We opened gifts on Christmas Eve morning so that our oldest
granddaughter could be there – she was spending Christmas day with her Dad.
It was definitely a White Christmas here – the hubs had to go clear the driveway first thing.
(Fun fact – I was complaining to the Hubs about my weight
and he told me there was a snow shovel in the garage with my name on it…
I told him I sure hoped he would stay warm on the couch that night….. ;-)
The grands were super excited when they got here.
As soon as they got in the house I told them to sit in front of the tree
so I could get a picture of them before we opened presents.
I had forgotten that Miss Lydia Grace,
at the age of two,
does not like to be told what to do…
How dare I….
When I put this picture on my Facebook page, my sister said it reminded
her of me at that age.. I was a bit strong-willed..some might say stubborn..
When I didn’t get what I wanted, I would hold my breath until I passed out..
For the record – I rarely do that anymore…
We finally bribed Lydia with apple juice, and she agreed to join in
the festivities. You can tell the agreement was a tad reluctant..
She eventually got drawn into the spirt of things, however.
I think she was just impressed by the great price Grandma
got on this Princess Tea Set at Ross. ;-)
We had an unexpected visit from Ironman..
Which is always fun.
He even revealed his secret identity -
His name is Matthias
But don’t tell anyone..
I managed to make my 13yr old grandaughter
Kelsi happy with a t-shirt from a
store I can’t pronounce..
I feel so uncool…
Despite my uncool-ness, we all enjoyed the day.
We had good food, great conversation, laughter and board games.
We ended the day with a Christmas Eve service at our Church-
All in all it was a wonderful Holiday filled with
Family, Faith, Food and Fun..
And now I am ready to take down the Christmas decorations and get started on a new year!
2013 – here we come!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful too
And that the New Year holds much joy for you and your family
