Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good night

First I want to say Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope you got to enjoy your day with your family and friends.
If you aren't celebrating the holidays today, I hope you still enjoyed your day with family and friends.

Our morning started off with Hubby and I waking our children up at 7:30 am. Well actually my youngest, Kristy was awake. But we had to wake up the other 2....teens, lol.
Here is one of the gifts my hubby got me. Isn't it pretty.
He would buy me jewelery for every occasion if I let him. But I wear the same jewelery everyday. Everything I wear means something special to me. So I never change it.
Here is a picture of my girls with their unopened gifts. I have other pictures, but I don't think they would be to impressed if I put them on here :).
Their favourite gifts were the books they received. Heather got graphic novels "The Walking Dead". Ashley "Princess cupcakes". Kristy's was the laptop we got her. But hid it until everyone was finished opening theirs. Then we said oh I think there is one more by the couch. She was so surprised.
Rose's favourite gift was the catnip in her stocking, teehee. She was like a kitty again. She was even rolling on the stocking, LOL.
Tonight we went to my oldest brother Darrell and his wife (Wayne's sister) Darlene's for supper. My sister comes with her 2 children. That is the extent of my side of the family that live here.
This is my little sister (OK younger sister) Julia. She is 8 yrs younger than me. When we were growing up she was by my side every day and night. I was like a little mom to her. My brother always said he didn't know where I started and where she ended as she followed me around like she was my shadow.
Here is me, Darlene and my sis Julia.
This is the 1st year the Ashley didn't come for Christmas dinner. She went to her boyfriends house for supper. It was only fair as he came to our family dinner last night. I really felt the loss without her there. But I know as the girls get older things are going to change. I just have to accept them and enjoy the time that they are with me. Silly I know, as it was for only one meal, but I want my girls around me for everything.
I hope you all enjoyed your day today.

  8. Love the necklace! I was the same way with my sister growing up. She is 4 years younger than me, and bigger :0) She followed me around all the time and if my friends didn't like it I made them go home :0) We still are very close but since I have children and she doesn't her life is very different. I did see her 4 days in a row this week though. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, we did!
