I'm afraid I can't quite remember which of the five goats is which, but I know these two are Fred and Ethel.
It is indeed more blessed to give than to receive, and at Christmas, I really, really enjoy shopping for the grandkids and for my nieces and nephew. Amelia, who likes to send me long texts followed by a string of emoticons, loved her emoticon message bead kit. 😀😂😉
Matthew's new Star Wars Legos certainly made him smile.
Cari's favorite gift was clearly the new ukulele she received from her parents, and Alex and I knew she'd never guess …
What our biggest gift to her was this year. (If you guessed a sparkly new lamp for her new bedroom, you win!)
And I didn't take a picture of Madison opening anything, but her favorite part of the day was clearly spending time with her gentleman caller, Dylan.
And here are Amelia and Matthew with their gingerbread house. Matthew was proud of the handle and doorbell on the house but said it looked like "a candy tornado" had come through. Ha! I hope you all had a great time celebrating with your own family and friends!
