Merry Christmas!

Elsie (short for Elspeth- which she is never called...LOL) wishes you a merry Christmas.

With the Barbie our brother, Scott, got her.

If I look tired, it's because I watched her all day before going to this shin-dig at Papa Jim's house (4 hour round trip).

Christmas morning

My new sewing machine...yay!

I think this Christmas was one of the most fun we've had in a while. Reese is home. And Reese has little clue as to what Christmas is "supposed" to be. She didn't really have a preconceived notion of what "should" happen. She had some clue though. Ask her whose birthday Christmas is? "Baby Jesus!" Where was he born? "Bed!" is what it sounds like- translated from toddler-ese to "Bethlehem". Who were his mommy and daddy? "Mary and Joseph". She's got the basics covered. Maybe next year we'll hit Sissy's Discovery Channel- National Geographic tainted version that says likely Jesus was born in a cave, not a stable, and a few other random facts. LOL.

You had to keep handing her presents or she'd stall, for lack of a better word, quite the same way a standard transmission car will, on one present. With as many presents as she had, we could have been there all day. Mom and I blame the mass amount of presents she got, from us alone, on the fact that a) we've missed the last 3 Christmases of her's, and b) she's far behind on the standard amount of toys an American child would accumulate by the time they're 3. LOL. With her, it was: Open a present? Cool! Another one? Sure, why not? Candy at 7 in the morning? Okie Dokie!

I got a new sewing machine for Christmas, and it is awesome! So progress has continued on Reese's 1oo Good Wishes Quilt. I honestly hope to have the rest of the squares cut down to size and sewn into their little sets of 4 by the end of the day. That's only 15 more sets of 4. No biggie, right? Heh heh, yeah. I'm optimistic.

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. Lana is still pretty oblivious to the glitter of the holiday also.

Love the pictures.
