These last couple of weeks was a steady pace of pre-cooking ~ baking ~ cleaning ~ laundry ~ shopping ~ wrapping and all those 'must do' things to get ready for our family Christmas Celebration.
We had a wonderful time of course. Like we do every year.
My kitchen was filled with enough food to feed an army.
I'm not kidding!! I cooked soooo much and the girls brought their dishes to add to the mountain of food. Topped off with the traditional sweets and cookies.
Oh yeah ..... we were all stuffed.
And then the FUN really started for the kids. Opening the presents.
And then..... that excitement was topped off by our traditional "Christmas Clue Hunt". I've been making up clues for 13 years now.
I start by reading the first clue for the oldest. When that clue is found the next clue is read to the next child and then the next child on down to the youngest. When all clues have been found.... it's a race to the stockings to find out what's been added this year.
Since this is the end of 2013 I thought I'd share all of the Christmas Snuggles that I made for the girls this year. Some of them you have seen. But several I didn't want to post about because they might read my blog. So here's the run down......
|Bethany's. There was another 2" green border on this.|
|This is Gina's.|
|I gave this one to Evelin because she loved it so much last year.|
Gotta love my guys.
I sure hope you all had a wonderful 2013 and wishing all the best to you in the New Year.
Now I'll be linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday for the last time this year.
Happy New Year!!
