Post Christmas

I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did!! We were missing those who could not join was the first Christmas in a long time that our whole family could not be together. Our youngest had to work and is coming home today (yay!), our oldest and his family could not come, so we were REALLY missing those grandkids!! While our celebration was small in numbers, it was BIG in joy and love!

Here is the table dressed and ready for the big meal. Dear Daughter fixed a wonderful YUMMY ham. Mmmm good. We are having our leftovers for another meal when my son gets the eating isn't over yet!

I always wanted Christmas dishes. I got these a few years ago and I just love them! They are part of my Christmas tradition now.

I also wanted to share some of my custom (ie homemade) gifts that I gave this year. These 3 scrabble necklaces were for my daughter in law and my 2 granddaughters, they have their initials on the back.

These 2 were for my sister and my niece, also with their initials on the back.

This one is with a photo that my hubby took of his Mom's plane. He photoshopped it to have a blue background. My Mother in Law built this plane from a kit. Isn't that great? She loves to fly it! I would say that she is an inspiration for all women to be a pilot, have a plane that she built and fly it....AND...she will be 80 on her next birthday!

This necklace was for my dear daughter. I love the way it turned out.

I just knew that she would love these colors!

And, there is a SECRET message on the says M R S F. The Mrs because she is still a newlywed and F for her last name. Her last initial did not change when she married. How handy!

And, it looks great on her!! Don't you think?

Pookie was all about the holiday spirit with his very own Santa suit. What a doll!!

Now, I'm looking forward to the new year and all that it will bring!
