Christmas Day Recap

Posted on January 16, 2016 by under Family.    

Our family had a nice time celebrating Christmas Day at our house. Grandma spent the night so we didn’t have to get her first thing in the morning. David and Donna came up for the Christmas holiday so they went to pick grandma up on Christmas Eve.

Grandma met Saki for the first time on Christmas Day.

Untitled

Both of the girls got special presents, handcrafted by Donna.

Untitled

This is the present that we received from my half-sister who lives in New Jersey. We received them a few days before but wanted to wait until Christmas Day to open the presents because the packages looked so good under the tree.

Untitled

She sent us his and hers mugs with our initials.

Untitled

We experienced a Christmas miracle: a rare moment of Saki and Molly not fighting. It was short-lived, though. Within seconds they were not getting along again.

Untitled

This isn’t a gag gift. Grandma specifically asked for fruit cake.

Untitled

She also asked for flavored popcorn.

Untitled

So we got some for her.

Untitled

She didn’t ask for these cookies but we know that she loves them so we try to get some for her every year.

Untitled

Untitled

David and Donna also got grandma a basket full of goodies.

Untitled

Grandma always gets lots of food items at Christmas time.

Untitled

Donna asked for these Rachel Ray cooking utensils.

Untitled

We try to follow instructions. LOL.

Untitled

She also wanted coloring books. So we got her several different kinds. This is one of the books we got her.

Untitled

We followed instructions except for the colored pencils. Donna had a different brand on her list but Brian insisted that we get Prismacolor because they’re of better quality.

Untitled

David mostly just wanted tools.

Untitled

All of the presents we got him this year came from Harbor Freight.

Untitled

Brian got this hoodie, which he absolutely loves.

Untitled

He wears it everyday.

Untitled

He also got a monogrammed tie, which he loves.

Untitled

He doesn’t wear it everyday but he has worn it a few times since Christmas.

Untitled

His favorite present of all is his new bowling bag. Up until now, he’d been using his grandfather’s old bag.

Untitled

Now he has his very own, and it matches his shoes and bowling ball.

Untitled
Brian, David, and I all got one of these lighted beanies.

Untitled

They’re going to be great for walking the dogs at night or before sunrise.

Untitled

I got some She & Him CDs from David and Donna.

Untitled

Saki was my Christmas present from Brian. 🙂
