Christmas Day

Christmas day brought turkey, stuffing and those oh so good mashed potatoes.   My son Doug and his fiancé Elke arrived from Germany on Christmas Eve.   Luggage was lost, but the Christmas spirit was not.  Lufthansa delivered the lost luggage to our house 6PM Christmas day!  They tried really hard to get it here, and we live a good hour 1/2 from the airport! 

Table is set 

The Christmas table was set by Doug and Elke.  The table cloth is a gift made by my friend Barbara, who blanket stitched trees, reindeer and Santa’s around the border!   And, next to the adult table, was a special table for our grandkids…

Kids Table

That’s sparkling cider (not champagne) served in those Target polka dot glasses!  And do you recognize that little Target tree? 

And after dinner, we opened presents.  Elke tried on the robe we got her, and Chelsea tried on her new sweater.  Hummm, wonder who likes their present the best?

Hope your Christmas was wonderful!  Now it’s time to get organized.  I’ll be back with some tips to help just in case you’re in the organizing mood too!

  • mimi'sdarlins - Anne, thanks for sharing your beautiful family photos! Looks like your Christmas was wonderful, ours was too. Snow, snow everywhere (nearly 12" fell over two days!), but most managed to slowly make the in-town trips needed to spend Christmas together, some postponed til New Year's Day.
    Thanks also for a wonderful year of beautiful monthly patterns…Happy New Year!ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - très jolies décorations

  • Annie - I don't remember from my childhood the kids table being that fun!

    I am sure Chelsea has that expression because any respectable gal who is having a Christmas photo in a new outfit is usually holding their breath! lolReplyCancel

  • Brenda - Not certain that Chelsea likes what she got for Xmas. The look on her face is priceless.ReplyCancel

  • Maria Jové - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

  • Sharon (Stitches on Mars) - Chelsea does look a little mournful, perhaps she was hoping for nibblies :D

  • brigette - Looks like everyone had a wonderful time…. except Chelsea looks completely humiliated. I promised her that next year she could just have some cat food instead. Cat food is right up her alley. Collegiate pink sweaters? Not so much.ReplyCancel

  • SEO Los Angeles - I am very happy looking at these photos. It seems that you really have a very wonderful Christmas. Love it!!!ReplyCancel
