Christmas 2009

Well, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I suppose it's about time I catch up on my blog posts. We have been very busy around here with the holidays and the office remodel, we haven't had time to do much that didn't HAVE to be done.

We truly had a wonderful Christmas with all my kids and grandkids here. Landon and Tracy flew in from Washington a week before Christmas and helped us get everything ready for the party (2 parties to be exact). They actually decorated the house which was a big help to me since all I had done by then is pull the boxes out of the closet and buy a big old tree.

On Christmas morning, Lain, Kevin and Shay came up from Phoenix and we had a pretty relaxed time of opening presents and enjoying the time. We didn't have to make a huge dinner for all the sisters and families because they didn't come until the next day. So we didn't even have a traditional Christmas dinner. Alan made lasagna!

Here are some pictures of our Christmas:

For Christmas, I got a hanging lamp for over the dining room table. I even got to unwrap it.

Isn't it beautiful??? I LOVE IT!!
The grandkids were VERY ready to start opening presents!
This is the quilt I made for Elaine. It isn't quilted yet.. I just ran out of time! If it looks familiar, I made one just like it for Landon and Tracy last Christmas. Lain liked it so much I had to make one for her, too.

Landon and Tracy... I crocheted the scarf and hat for Tracy. She liked it alot.. :-) I also crocheted some slippers for her but that didn't turn out so well. That's another story...

Alan modeling his new hat. I guess this was the year of the hat. Just about everyone got one!
The day after Christmas my family came up from Phoenix and we had another big dinner and did a White Elephant exchange. It's always so much fun getting together with my family.

I love that quilt you made. I remember when you posted about the previous one you made. I hope to some day be able to make something like that!
