Beautiful Christmas Day!

While most of the rest of the country is struggling with snow, ice and rain we had a sunny Christmas day!

Last night Steph and I went to 11 pm Christmas Eve service at a little church down the street. It was a beautiful service and truly made it feel like Christmas. When we came out of the church there was fog that was enveloping everything and it just felt so peaceful.

This morning our little family opened presents at home. I got a new pink soap scale - my favorite color. I also got a new purse which I just love. Steph got new fur lined boots, moccasins (which she said was her favorite present), a new coat, and lots of goodies in her stocking.

We went to Missy's for dinner and had such a wonderful time. The two youngest grandsons got things to ride on outside so they enjoyed a dry day riding their new toys in the church parking lot across the street. We ate lots, opened presents, and visited. This time next year we will have a new little one to spoil with love and presents. I can't wait.

I am so tired of all the preparation the last couple of days. I didn't get much baking done so tried to do a marathon session last night and this morning. Tomorrow is definitely going to be a pajama and movie day.

Merry Christmas!!!

It has been a lazy sort of day here also. I did manage to get dressed, but here it is, not even 6pm, and I am in my pj's already!

Saturday AND Sunday were both pj days and I loved it. I did get dressed today but I am still dragging a bit. So are the daughters and we have a wedding (at home this Saturday!) Preparations are already under way so today I hauled all my silver to daughters house...
A wedding is a lovely start to a New Year. LOVE it!
Happy New Year in case I don't see you!
:)
We are also expecting a new baby boy this Friday...
Isn't life grand?

I almost think it is a better idea to bake in January so we can really enjoy the process. I hope you enjoyed your movie and pjs. Who is blessing you with a new little one? Hugs Florence
