Somewhat Back to Normal...

...but not totally, of course, as New Year's is just a few days away.  We will be getting together with friends for a New Year's Eve Celebration and then we plan to have our kids and grandkids over on New Year's Day for a southern traditional meal of ham, black eyed peas, greens, and corned bread. 

I had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Day with my family.  We had Christmas Eve at my daughter's and had our big family meal of standing rib roast then.  I did that cooking and it was fun enjoying the meal in their new home as they celebrated their first Christmas there.  I got to put AG to bed on Christmas Eve after we read 124 books including several Christmas ones and told him how Santa was looking in his window to see if he was in his bed asleep so that Santa could bring toys.  That didn't work great but finally did get him to bed.  These are a few pictures I took with the two grandkids in front of the tree on Christmas Eve:

So much for photos.  LOL!  I took about 125 photos yesterday but doubt I got any really good ones!  Oh is what it is!
Here is one I got of our cute little elf on Christmas morning:
Hard to believe she will be 7 months in just a few days...

Here's David playing with his little Home Depot work bench that Santa brought him.
 He really liked it!
 Taylor wasn't impressed with much except for wrapping paper and ribbons or whatever David didn't want her to have (of course!).  Here she is in a pink and brown hat that Omie made for her.  I love the way it turned out.
I got a few scrapping related gifts that I'll post about later...

Happy Crafting!
