Christmas Present

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas to one and all!   We had our own family celebration Christmas Eve with our kids, son in law, and those adorable grandsons. 
 Daughters Erica and Elaine with Hunter.  I did not get a good photo of our son in law so spared him the one bad shot I was able to get!

 Last year it was Cove in a Giant Gift Bag, this year Hunter took a turn.  He is a crawling machine and headed straight for the tree every chance he got.  He's waving bye bye and pulling up to stand everywhere, chattering away.  Poor kids have been sick for over two weeks and their sleeping schedule has been terribly disrupted, which has been very hard on their parents.

 A little blurry, but happy Papa and Mimi with Cove 2 yrs 10 mos and Hunter 10 mos. Their birthday will be coming up before we know it. 

 The tree before all the packages were crowded round.
 Cove looking at a photo of the big truck Uncle Nick drives at work.  Word has it that Santa brought Cove a chainsaw and other tool toys.  He loves his tools and all trucks and big equipment.

We enjoyed Erica's choice for dinner, Christmas Fettuccine (Alfredo with broccoli and chicken), French bread, Caesar salad, with Apple Crisp and vanilla ice cream for dessert.  We will gather with many other family members this afternoon for filet Mignon from the grill, with and lots of other yummy foods.  I made two cheesecakes and have a batch of cookies to finish off today to share for dessert.  But for now I'm relaxing and planning to get some cross-stitching done.  To one and all, my best wishes for the coming New Year and may your bobbin never run out!  Thank you to of you readers who stop by and check in on my little blog, and special thanks for commenters!
