Celebrating the Season!

Hello out there good friends!  I hope you have not given up on me.  The last three weeks have just flown by.  I have been having fun with family and friends.  Thought I would show you some of the highlights.  The first weekend of the month I celebrated my birthday with these lovely ladies.  I took the picture so I of coarse I am not in it.
 Hubs and I went to our five year old granddaughters Christmas program.  Here she is with grandpa after the program.
My camera does not take very good pictures from afar but I did take this little video I can share with you.
One of our grandsons has a December birthday so we celebrated with him this past week.
His mommy (our daughter) built this awesome gingerbread house for the children to play in at the party.
We had our family Christmas gathering at our house yesterday.  We had a wonderful time with the grandchildren and having all the family together.  The granddaughters looked lovely.
We passed a gift out to each of the children and made them wait until everyone had a gift before they could open theirs.  I got some cute pictures.  Looked like they were waiting at the starting line for a race. 
There were quite a few late nights getting this afghan done for the oldest grandson but it was well worth it.  I am going to make one for each, working from oldest to youngest.
And I always get the grandchildren new PJ's for Christmas.  They always like getting them.
I know that you are all busy and I do not know how you manage to keep your blogs everyday.  I hope to start posting more often now and I hope you will all come back for a visit.  I hope you are all enjoying your family this season as I am.  Love and Blessings!

Hi Brenda, thanks so much for your nice comment on my newly finished afghan! I enjoyed looking at all your fun family pictures here and the video is just darling! We went to the Christmas program for our 2nd grader and kindergartner this past week and it was just so precious!

I love the afghan you made for your grandson. The zig zag pattern is so classic, not to mention so warm and cozy! But my goodness, do they take a long time to make! My grandmother and my aunt made many of them and we all have several in our homes and love them dearly! These afghans will become cherished treasures for your grandchildren.

Merry Christmas to you!

What a beautiful looking family you have Brenda. And what a great idea to make each grandchild an afghan. They will be cherished. Looks like you are having a wonderful, family/friend filled December, as it should be. Blogging can wait and your blog friends will be here!

Sometimes the holidays can get a little too crazy for blogging . . . I'm trying to keep up as well, but we'll see. =) Your grandkids are so cute! I love their open, big smiles.
