December 26, 2011

The day after..and I am tired.

Christmas Eve after church we sat napped through the Justin Bieber movie Never say Never..whilst the girls swooned and sang along with all the songs.

The boys and their parents spent most of Christmas Eve Day up North with Andy’s parents.  They arrived late at night and they sacked out in the Living Room.

It was all a success..we ate and we did dishes..we ate again.

Here are the five on Christmas Morning. These kids must all be growing..they can pack away the food!


I had just told them “If you kids don’t smile..we are never going to open any packages.”

Girls Dancing

The girls danced. They all played with their new toys. Cameras and IPods and Nintendo DS3’s and a compound bow.

Laughter and giggling commenced for most of the day..we played Pass The Pig..a simple game like dice except you use pigs.

My Mom and Dad ventured out and had dinner with us..and Mom made it down and up the stairs safely.

Sometime during the day..I was at my computer..Adam came by and said “Grandma could I please use your computer?”   I said “Of Course.”  He said “Oh yeah Merry Christmas Grandma.” I used to think he might be a UPS delivery guy when he grew up because he liked to push the truck (cart) around in the I  am not so sure..he sure knows how to schmooze his Grandma:)Adam Merry Christmas


  1. It really looks like they had fun - - even Chance. He has a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face!

  2. Looks like great fun!

  3. What a great day you had, and all the kids make Christmas the special day it is. I always enjoy seeing pictures of your family. :-)

  4. a great group! and yes, with five kids the food just disappears. happy boxing day!

  5. What a wonderful time. Glad your mom was able to make it and navigate the stairs safely. Rest and take it easy!! :)

  6. The kids are hardly little anymore. They've really grown up. You are a terrific grandma being able to sit or nap through a Justin Beiber movie - guess I'm too old to understand the interest in him. Sounds like it was another great Christmas at your place.

  7. Love the photos you have shared! Fun to see the younger folks having so much fun. I agree with Lynda, Chance has a twinkle in his eye!
    Happy to know you parents could be there.

  8. Such lovely, shiny-bright smiling little faces! Now that's what I call the best Christmas decorations of all!

    Happy New Year!

  9. Happy to see what fun went on in you home Christmas. Great family!

  10. I can imagine that you are worn out, but what a wonderful family celebration! And how nice that your parents could be there as well. Four generations in one house is pretty special, as you well know. Now enjoy your post-Christmas week, Connie!

  11. It's always better the day after Christmas, you can relax, and the leftovers taste sooo good.

  12. With all those grand kids you had lots of entertainment!

  13. Grandkids can be such a joy. How nice you were able to spend Christmas with your family.

  14. You had a lot of activity with the kids around. That had to be fun. Our two boys really got wild every Christmas morning and had so much fun with the surprises. Your grands are really growing. I like the UPS guy.
