Christmas at Mammy & Papa's

We celebrated Christmas this past weekend because Kit, Ashley and Foster came in from Amarillo. Maile, Jeremy and James, Dawn and Gail came over on Sunday for lunch, then in the afternoon we exchanged gifts. It was a delightful time!! I made a "Baby Jesus in the manger" for under the Christmas tree. Both grandkids enjoyed him. It nearly made me cry when Foster (the 2 1/2 year old) said, "He's sleeping on hay." It was worth all the trouble I went to to build the manger and fix it just right!

I made personalized jammies for Foster and James. It was like herding cats, but we finally got a photo of the two of them together in their matching jammies...How cute!!

The toy nativity set was a big hit, too. Both boys played and played with it. (Precious helped!) James kept one eye on the scary stocking hanging just above the stable...

We all had a wonderful time!! Merry Christmas 2009!
