Christmas at Home

We had a very nice and relaxing Christmas in our new home. It was the first time I was the host! Grandma Stephenson and Samantha came to spend the week with us. And Gretel too, Maggie was very happy about that. On Christmas morning she by passed her presents and went straight to Gretel and said "puppy!"

Santa brought Maggie her first baby doll and buggy. She's been such a good Mommy. Benjamin got his first Nerf gun. Dad got one too. I have to admit they are a lot of fun.
We even got Grandma in on the fun!



Aunt Samantha gave Benj this awesome lion! He loves it and it goes great in his jungle room. Thanks Sam!

Ha! "you older kids" Boy that made me laugh, out loud!!! Yep you guessed it Acheivement Days, which is now Activity Days. I am trying to channel the memories of your mom in that calling for inspiration, but all I can remember are all the stories she used to tell of what NOT to do. So for your correct answer...we are making juice pouch scripture totes for our first sewing project and one will be yours! Let me know how to get it to you.
