My mom was here for 8 days and the kids are home so life has been busy. DH's folks came for Christmas day, but the family shot is on my mom's camera. I wasn't very good about taking pictures this time around, but here's a peek
into Christmas 2019 - a gag gift for our hound dog collector from a friend of my mom's
A set of pots and pans to replace the broke-college-student kitchen ware
A quilt for our boy
Multiple rounds of Cribbage were played
Christmas traditions were savored:
Our annual puzzle was pieced:
Although, it seems that DH and I are the puzzle enthusiasts in the family. Funny thing is, we have no desire to do them any other time of the year, but he and I will be consumed with puzzle-itis for these 2 days:
And snuggles when the day had been conquered:
Feed runs and quail chasing means time spent in the pickup. I love this shot our girl took one day:
Christmas has been dismantled and stashed away in the shed until next time, when I will once again bemoan the fact that the year flew by too fast.
DH turned the calendar on another year as well. No birthday cake this year. He said we've indulged enough and that it was time to return to our regularly scheduled program.
I hope that includes a nap!
As the sun sets on the last day of 2019
I want to wish ya'll a New Year filled with all the things that bring you joy - may you be safe, happy, healthy and blessed in the coming year.
