Christmas Day

On Christmas day, after we have opened our gifts we walk over to Mom's to spend the day. We wear our new pj's, watch movies, play games, eat & just chill out the entire day.

photo taken from beyer beware.

I made these later in the day & they were soooooo good! I found them on pinterest. I have a new addiction & they are called Hawaiian Ham Sammies.

 Danny opening his 1001 Retro Commercials. 16 hours of them! We watched a few of those hours.

 Danny was thrilled with this sign. If you visit Mom's house, expect to see it hanging in the living room. ;)

 Diane found this "Farmall" flannel shirt & got it for Mom. Danny was SO excited! He wants to cut the tag out. Hahaha!!!
 My ponytail wouldn't let my hat fit. :/
 Mom with her t-shirt pom poms, I made her. The red ones & the red & white one were made out of a t-shirt that held bad/hurtful memories for her. So I told her I turned trash into treasure.
 D got a new navy blue coat. I think he's doing the "Back that thang" up dance.
 Mom got a Kindle!
 Once I put this hat on (after D tried it on), I never took it off the rest of the day. I love it!

 I got a Shark Lift Away Vacuum & steam mop! But it wasn't there yet. It didn't hamper my excitement though.
 More ornaments I made Mom.

 I found this little Farmall tractor at an antique shop. Danny was tickled. :)

 Love my hat!
 Mom with her gingerbread girl....Another one of Leland's goodies
 I got some new polish! And I adore all of them.

 D video chatted with his parents & brother.

 Keith, Lindy, Mercy & Rudy came over that night, so Mercy could get her other presents...The clothes Mom made for her doll that Santa brought.

 Mom made this blanket & pillow, plus a robe to match.
 Her Auburn outfit,
Modeling her new hat.

 I got this photo from Lindy's facebook, to show you Mercy & her doll in their matching nightgowns.

After they left & Danny went to bed, D, Mom & I played Sequence until after midnight. Such a fun game!

I did not want the day to end at all. I got sad when Mom & D got tired & we came home, because I knew once we were home the day was officially over. I always get a bit melancholy on Christmas night. I know I shouldn't fear the future, but I do. I don't like the unknown & Christmas is a marker that the year is really coming to an end. I know most people look at the new year with hope, but I like to stay right where I am. Hahaha! The future does hold great promise, but it can also bring unwanted things too. Anyhoo.....On a lighter note! This was truly a wonderful Christmas! How blessed I am. God is good & I am thankful.


  1. Dang.....I didn't want the post to end!!! What fun!!!

  2. What a WONDERFUL Christmas! Oh my, every single one of these pictures was just great. I was really in love with Danny's 'tractor' sign and began my evil plot on how to steal it, but then I got down to the part about your mom's t-shirts and you turning trash into treasure. How sweet. You really did turn something that was 'ugly' into a thing of beauty.

    Crystal, I'm like you. I love what the future may hold, but also sometimes fear what the future may hold. Just remember....He is already there. Love to you.
