To the New Year

Almost a full day in of the New Year . I seen the new year come in with my favorite people to hang out with....my hubby  and all my kids.  We went down to my oldest and spent the night there.
Here are Erika and Rachel hanging out together.
We had Christmas also with my son's family,
Rachel loved opening her gifts....

We sure did miss them on Christmas , so it was wonderful being together this weekend.
Now its just some random pictures from my Christmas, not many
Cousins hanging out.......

My Mom and Mother in law...




Andrew having more Christmas on New years Eve at his brothers...

And these photos are my Santa's that my mother had painted each Christmas for years. She would paint one each for her 3 daughters, 3 daughter in laws, and sometimes for the grandchildren as they got older. 






 They are very special to me and someday I will share them with my own kids.
These cute angel girls were my husbands grandma's.  I always loved them , they are so cute and red is my favorite color so  I put them out each Christmas.
Kids have one more day of vacation and I am getting back to sewing and cleaning out my craft room. Thought about taking before and after photos of the craft room but we will see.

Hi Colleen! I was going through my followers list on my blog and I see that you follow me so I thought I would come over here and meet you.

You have a beautiful family! Together with family is what the holidays is all about. I also have some Santas that were painted by my mom and my husband's grandma. Some are so old and I can't wait till my kids are old enough to have them passed on down to them.

Speaking of kids... mine go back Wednesday so I'm looking forward to getting some crafting done! =]

Nice to meet you. Have a delightful week~
