Took some cute pictures of my nephew and nieces in front of the tree

I baked and cooked and baked some more – oh, all the yummy goodies!

Some of my Christmas presents!
- Hubby did good with my very own Craftsman tool set (think he just wants me to leave his alone.
- Paula Deen candles from my dad
- some new pieces to add to my Pfaltzgraff Winterberry Christmas dishes from my mom and mother-in-law
- a Life Application study Bible
- a beautiful string of pearls from my in-laws
Here are some of hubby’s presents:
- Herbie movies
- and a new drill/driver set (hmmm…wonder what I can do with that? )
We enjoyed a wonderful December in the days leading up to Christmas and Christmas Day itself! Hope your family did too!
