A Great Christmas Day

Don’t you just wish Christmas Day would last longer, after all the preparations to make the day special?  It goes too fast.

We spent Christmas with our daughter Heather, SIL Brian and grandsons Andrew and Owen.  We were pleased that our very good friends Mike and Terri could join us this year, too.


Andrew and Owie bought gifts for each other, Owie looked on expectedly to see Andrew open the gift he bought for him.  It’s great that they have understood the meaning of giving as well as receiving.


Owie had a blast with a toy helicopter he got, with some coaching from daddy Brian.  A future pilot?


Andrew has a scientific curiosity and was thrilled with a human body model that he could take apart to examine how all the organs work.  He and Heather spent a couple of hours examining it in great detail.  A future doctor?


Santa did manage to sneak in a couple of electric scooters for the boys, hidden in the garage.


After a great dinner, a rousing game of Bananagram was played to fight off the food coma.


A wonderful time with family and friends. 

Today marks our granddaughter, Taylor’s seventh birthday.  She is visiting her other grandparents in Tennessee this Christmas holiday.  We’ll be visiting her next month.  :c)


Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
