Christmas Fun

We made a fun blanket for a family trade game using all the kid's hands made into birds or butterflies. We had fun making it and it made a really neat blanket.

Ally embroidered the initials of each kid into the edge, and we worked together on all the sewing.
This is a Christmas morning picture taken at 5am. Yes, they woke up at 4:30 am! Man, were we beat! Mom and Dad took a morning nap after everyone was occupied with presents and fun. Ally was very excited about her new Bible and lots of crafting goodies, Gracie got a great new horse and cowboy hat. Daniel got a new bike and more Legos. We have all enjoyed our Apples to Apples Bible Edition and other fun games too.

Gracie got a tire horse from Grandma and Grandad! She was so excited! She got some great western-looking cowgirl clothes too.
The girls enjoyed playing with Shyanne and their other cousins. We went to Byron's parents on Christmas Day and stayed until Sunday afternoon.

Daniel with his GG (that's short for Great Granny). I got big pressure canner, but my favorite gift of all is the most interesting book I have read in a long time, a gift from my sister.

The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It by John Seymour. Such a neat book!
