Here I am excited about a gift Mike's aunt got me.....a baseball cap with the TARGET store symbol on it...For one I'm a baseball cap lover....I have one on almost daily in summer and I LOVE TARGET!! Mike's aunt works at Target so only employees can order them....as you can see I was very surprised and excited...even though it's blurry!
Grace still keeps Christmas magical for us....Not that we all weren't excited but there's just something about the "youngest" child's excitement that is contagious to the rest of us! Here she is holding ANOTHER horse to add to her growing collection! She collects Breyer horse sets and this was the Breast Cancer awareness horse...Pink and "glass" or so she says it's glass but it's really "fine plastic" ha She's always happy to get horse sets and always smiley on Christmas morning!! she's excited about any gift....even clothes!
"Mom all I want this year is a camera, really you don't have to get me anything else I just want my own camera!" Well how could we turn down that request! So here she is smiley and happy about her own new camera. We got her a pink case for it and she's done very well taking photos. We go on to my parents after we open our gifts at home and she did great taking photos herself! And we did get her other gifts, not just a camera...but she sure was happy....I waited to let her open that after several gifts which kind of made it funnier!
And my boy....I couldn't help this year thinking about Christmas' that are coming soon, in just the next two years and wondering if we'll be anxiously awaiting him to come home from college for Christmas....where did the time go and why is it now going faster than I want it to.....We saved KINECT until almost the end for him to open and as you can see he was VERY excited and a bit overwhelmed he got it.......The greatest story about this gift is I decided I wanted to clean out all our old games and gaming "stuff" before we got more stuff for Christmas and so we gathered a big bag of old games we no longer used and turned them into Gamestop with the intention of putting the money towards Kinect and guess what? we ended up paying.....$23 for it!! Wow...pays to clean up! We have all enjoyed Kinect this week, it's alot of fun and very physical!
So another Christmas has come and gone and it's New Years Eve....we're having a big family party tonight and we'll eat and play games and watch specials on tv. and eat some more! It's always a blast and our house is filled with laughter all night.......Hoping all of you had a wonderful Christmas and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
