These first few are just some pictures of the madness that ensued once we started opening presents. It's a free for all!
In my Mom's family, we adult children and spouses draw names. One of the names K and I got was my youngest step-sister, L's name. I got her a travel jewelry roll-up case. I think she liked it!
My sister and her husband got K's name. They got him a scarf and a toboggan.....I KNOW he likes them! Thanks, Ginger!
The girls got new baby dolls, accessories for their American Dolls, adorable purses from Uncle H and his girlfriend S among other things.
The next day, we drove to Chattanooga and ate lunch at Krystal. We don't have Krystal's in North Carolina and I cannot tell you how much I miss it. Every time we go to Georgia, I must eat there at least once. This time - I ate there twice. Yes - I think I put on 10 lbs over the holidays!
That night we celebrated Christmas with my Dad and his girlfriend, who we call Na Na. Pronounced with a long A sound. They got the girls makeup kits!
And Pa Pa helping L.
A's actual response was "WWWOOOOWWW!!!"
Here is Na Na with B.
On Tuesday, K went golfing with my Dad. So, Mom, Ginger, the kids and I visited with my grandparents. And just had a day of hanging out.
On Wednesday, my Mom and I (and poor sick B) went shopping. I got some Christmas money ad got myself a couple of new things. A couple of turtlenecks from The G*ap. And a beautiful purple sweater from B*ana*na Re*pub*lic. And many, many things for the kids. Well - not that many but I hardly ever get to just shop and buy what I want so I frelt like it was many, many and I really did get great deals. For instance, I got L an dress from G*ap Kids for $7.99. And B four different outfits ( tops and bottoms) for $8.99 each from Gym*boree.....See-- GOOD DEALS!!
Then we headed home on New Years Day.
I hope that ya'lls Christmases were all as blessed as ours was and a with a whole lot less sickness!
