Merry Christmas!

Here is the calm--all the gifts unopened and waiting for their excited owners! Actually this looks like nothing compared to what we had--I had so many gifts I had them all over the house. The kids brought all their stuff over to--so you can imagine with what we buy for them and they for us--its ALOT of gifts to open.
Here we are in the midst of opening and checking things out. My 3rd son got me a Dyson Vacumn Cleaner..unreal. They vacumned up the hallway and parts of my bedroom--it was pretty embarassing what that thing picked up...I vacumn daily--and lets just say I felt like a pig. I will LOVE that thing.
Here are our grandaughters and my daughter's in law. The kids were pretty excited. We bought them all craft type gifts...so they will have plenty of neat things to make over the holiday break.
Here is part of the crew chilling after opening gifts. Everyone is pretty tired out. The excitement sure does get ya dosnt it? We all live very close--so they went home to relax for abit--and then we have dinner at 1!
My oldest son Jason and Ms. Ellie. She's a trip,,,a ton of fun. She went home to put her pretty Christmas dress on,,,let me tell you-she did NOT want to leave. We bought her that Smart Cycle--where you plug it into the TV and pedal to places. She's lovin it.

Christmas was huge for us this year...our kids bought us gifts we had no idea were coming. Not only did I get a Dyson Vacumn, but we got a new skillet, a juicer, a 2 day weekend trip to Sybaris--which is a Romantic Paradise. My girls got me a manciure kit, a trip to the spa, Thomas Kinkaide Calendar which is my favorite and relaxing Cds...gosh--I feel spoiled rotten! Baldyman got me a beautiful necklace--which I will get a picture and post it another day. I cant wait to wear it--its going to shine on New Years Eve dinner. I hope everyone had a great Holiday and found yourselves pampered! For me, this was one of the most pampering Christmas Holidays we have had. Our kids were joking saying--see it paid off this year to have us! Dinner is at 1--Prime Rib and Ham! I cant wait. Merry Christmas!

I guess by now your belly is full of yummy prime rib and you are hopefully resting from your exciting morning. You made out like a bandit with all of those presents.
I'm glad you had a Merry Christmas. Santa still had a few things left in his pack by the time he got here. hehehe
Hugs, Bridget

Sybaris would be fun but my husband's always afraid someone will have a hidden camera just waiting to snap him in the love nest. :>)

I'm glad you received all those great gifts. My husband would love the Dyson...he has a thing for vacuum cleaners.
