I Hope Everyone Had A Wonderful Christmas!

Santa made his way to our house and we had such a lovely day!
It all started Christmas Eve with Mike reading the kids my 1972 cherished childhood pop-up book, "The Night Before Christmas."

After the kids hit the sack, "Prep & Landing" prepared for Santa's arrival.

Photos of the family room shortly after ol' Santa finished up:

A new table and chairs for both kids.

Santa's magic snow boot prints!

The Kids 5:30am Christmas morning:

Grandma & Grandpa (without the chickens--yes, this is how my kids refer to their paternal grandparents and my parents are Grandma & Grandpa with the chickens..haha), Uncle Mark and Aunt Linda join the party.
Mike and Grandpa with the Civil War photo frame I scored for Mike on ebay!

Grandpa brought fresh squeezed orange juice made from oranges in his own back yard!  I had out ruby red grapefruit juice, and fresh coffee.

And finally the Lemonista gets a moment to open her gifts (with help, of course.)
A new lemon juicer!

My new ride...

Okay, if you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me!  I'm off to cook up ideas to ring in the New Year!  Stay Tuned!
