Christmas Programs: Christmas Joys

Yet another week has come and gone, and the end of the 2012 year is nearing an end.  WOW!  Where does the time go???
My lil' Candace had her Christmas program last Tuesday, and she lost her tooth the night before:  JUST in time to sing "All I want for Christmas (is my two front teeth)."

And this little girl is getting so big!  While packing up on Saturday to head off to Grandma's house, she got distracted and side-tracked with her books.  

But we eventually made it on the road, and had our Christmas celebration with my family yesterday.  I think the gift opening can be summed up as "Hats & Green Bay Packers, with a few other fillers."  
We are going to relax today (Monday), and then celebrate with Paul's family tomorrow on Christmas Day.  Tomorrow night, we will be back at our own house with MAYBE a late present-opening ceremony.  Santa is making a stop at the house to deliver presents, even if we're not there :)

And now, the picture show...

Matthews!  YES!  Hunka-hunka!

{{That bottle is empty!!!  LOL.  I guess I enjoyed the process of emptying it the night before;  so much that it needed to show up in my stocking as a little reminder joke.}}

We love the Packers, can you tell?

And check out that HAT!  These hats really were the best presents of the day!

My sister, recipient of a lap quilt she requested.

LOL.  And the SuperMan undies are passed along to Paul this year;  who will get them next year??? :D

My brother and wife who also requested a new quilt.

I love tender, family shots.  My brother and wife.

Merry Christmas! I love the hats and the Superman underwear is just too funny! I love Green Bay (always have since I was a kid) but it's not safe since I'm in Texas so I have to go along with the Cowboys! Your quilts are great too. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

looks like a lovely Christmas!
My daughter loves the Packers and Matthews. She drools over him on a regular basis. Gorgeous quilts!

Sorry, I can't add to your Packers fans -I've no idea what they do! It looks as if you had a great day, and another one to come. This year we're spending Christmas Day with my SIL and family, then our boys and partners are coming to us on the 27th for a second Christmas. Best wishes to you and your lovely family for a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy 2013

Merry Christmas! So glad that Santa is willing to accommodate your busy holiday season. Looks like everyone is having WAY too much fun. Hope you find some quiet time in there sometime to end the year.

I am cracking up because we may be in AZ, but there was lots of Packer stuff at our celebration too! Even a Matthews jersey! I also got a cup of coffee, oh and gave quilts! Merry Christmas...I need to know more about the Superman undies tradition..may need to start that here!
