Christmas Day 2016 was a sweet day. The girls got up and they got to open their stockings and then we ate breakfast and they finished opening their presents. For lunch we had Grandma Linda over from the nursing home. Then they played and played and played the evening away.

Here are some photos from the day after Christmas and the fun they had with their new goodies.

The 10th doctor in the Tardis was my gift. 

They love to craft and Dani got some really cool tempura paint sticks that dry like watercolors. It was a wonderful Christmas season.

Gingerbread Houses!

Melissa and Charlotte invited us over to make gingerbread houses and we had so much fun!!! There was so much candy and a lot went into the girls and our bellies. HA!

Lunch time.

Pinatas in the rain.

We had so much fun and laughed so much throughout the day! Charlotte and her mommy are so much fun!

Thankful Thursday

  • I am thankful that those I know and love were safe during Hurricane Harvey. Texas has a lot of rebuilding to do and there is so much heartbreak, but I cling to the good stories coming out of this tragedy.

Thankful Thursday

  • I am thankful for funny stuff like this that my kids say:

Dani comes down the stairs after quiet time:

“Mom! I had a crisis at quiet time!”

You did? What happened?

“My knuckle started bleeding, but I took care of it.”
