Christmas Was Fun

I had a wonderful Christmas. I got to see my niece!!!! I haven't seen her since 2 years or so.She is now taller than me. She lives in Florida now. She was in Colorado.We put cookies out for Santa. Santa enjoyed them.It was so cute, Austin was watching Aidan open his presents. He wanted to see what he got. We told him that he could open his and he said oh. He was so excited about Aidan, he almost forgot about his.
Austin finally after a year and a half got his MTT Tradefederation Lego set. Daddy put it together with a little bit of Austin's help, and it looks awesome. Daddy got Mommy a Tassimo coffee maker. The coffee that comes out of this machine is way better than Starbucks coffee. It is like heaven in a cup. I liked it so much I wanted to try another flavor. Before I knew it I was high on caffeine. Barry is so awesome. Thank you Barry for the coffee, You rock.
The men were enjoying some guy time while children were running around. It looks like John on the right, my sisters boyfriend in checking out what Barry has on his plate. I love how their legs are crossed opposite of each other. I wonder if they planned it?

My other sister and her husband Greg found a little quiet time for a smooch. They were sharing a dessert together. Isn't that sweet?

I couldn't go this whole post without bringing up my crafting. I crocheted this snowman out of fabric a couple of years ago. He is a little over 2 Ft. tall. I also made one for my in laws. It really didn't take that long to make. When we got home that day we put together more toys for the boys. Train tracks, Lego's, and Cars stuff. I forgot to take a picture of the handmade gifts I made this year. I will post the gift set for the blog contest when I get it done, which will be tomorrow. The felted basket has to dry for a day.
Oh, Don't forget about my contest on Dec. 2nd post. Deadline is Dec. 31st at midnight. I will be working, so I won't be able to post until I wake up in the morning. Good luck to all!!!!

I think next year I may have to ask for Legos - that looks awesome!
For your blog, it's already pretty darn awesome. The photos are good - it's important to have photos - adn the text is fun. Maybe you could do some "how-to's" on things you've made? Like "here's how to make a snowman" with photos and whatnot.

I hope you have a happy and safe new year.

Awesome Picture of our men!! They had such a nice time, The Christmas gifts you made were a huge hit!! The wool dish is where I keep my jewelry in it on my bathroom counter, very nice and soft, the candle smells great and the soap smells great on my skin. I highly recommend this for a gift
