And now it's all done but the leftovers...

Christmas with my son and my Mom. Pictures? Um, nope, forgot to pick up the camera! However - Jamie took pics of Max's first Christmas and our Boxing Day with them. My grandson is the cutest thing --- ever!

Max with Uncle Derek --- he's home!!!

Look at that little bum - inching his way to the shiny wrapping

Jamie got presents too!

How blessed am I

My son has been home since Saturday. Drove all night Friday, stopped to snooze for a couple hours, and the doorbell rang at 5:30 am. I was obviously sleeping lightly waiting for my boy.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

 I opened the door, smiled, backed up so Derek and his bags could come in, then moved in for a hug. All I want for Christmas is... HERE!

Jamie and Mr. Max were here too, waiting for Uncle Derek, so we went up and woke them - we let them "sleep in" til 5:45. As you can see, four months away did NOT mean Uncle Derek was forgotten :)

 Had a wonderful long weekend with my wonderful family, and now Jamie and Max have gone home to prepare for Daddy, who gets home from work on the 23rd.

Christmas Sale table...

Forgot to post pics after Sharon and I were in the Airdrie Christmas Sale three weeks ago. We did "just okay", but it was -25 that day so traffic was minimal. All my remaining Treasures ended up at Grasshopper Gallery.

Those word blocks are Sharon's and can be custom-ordered (for any occasion - not just Christmas) on her Facebook page "The Crafty Hunter"

Drool on...

How's this for a DCWV give-away. I wish I lived near this Roberts Arts & Crafts --- or perhaps it's a good thing I don't?
