As most of you know this was our first Christmas with Miss B.
David had a bone marrow transplant last fall so we skipped Christmas
last year. We made up for it this year. Miss B and Pepe having a toast,
she loves to click glasses and say cheers!

Miss B and Gramie in the tent how would you know? by the tip of a toe!
I just love to hear her giggle.

Miss B was so over whelmed she could have cared less
about opening gifts. She had been opening gifts since the Sunday
before Christmas. Her birthday is Saturday and a whole other
Christmas is on the way with my husband's family which means about
30 people.

And I finished! I had it steamed by 11:30 on the 23 and took it
to work to bind it on the 24th. I made the star on the left a shooting star.
It was a wonderful healthy Christmas for us. We had much to be thankful
for this year. It is now snowing and blowing I am home from work with
no energy at all to clean. Maybe if I get dressed and get going I will get something done.

So glad this is a happy, healthy season of rejoicing for you and your family! Loved the pics!

Kim said...

Cheers to you too. That little Miss B is a real charmer. Stay inside today with a mug of hot chocolate and let the storm pass. It's on it's way here later

It sounds like a great time, Cathy! We have twins who have birthdays on Dec. 23! Always a marathon of gift-opening.:-)

Miss B is precious! Enjoy!

Miss B is simply adorable!!! The tent picture makes me giggle because we have the same antic over here. Isn't it funny how kids just love all the hub-bub and opening many gifts doesn't mean as much? We have December birthdays here too and I wish I could change them to summer. So glad David is well and it looks like you had a good Christmas! No matter what, after last year, I'm sure you appreciate it!
Your rug is just gorgeous and will be a Christmas treasure for many years to come. It will, most likely, become Miss B's one day!!

Indoor tents are the best and kids big and small seems to love them.

That cute little Miss B is just the cat's meow, so cute with her long hair and chubby cheeks. Kids sure makes Christmas special and I'm so glad that she came into your lives. Also I'm so glad that You could enjoy a wonderful Christmas together this year.
