Christmas Day

What a wonderful, wonderful season and time here in Arkansas!  Danny and Ann were out early going over to see what Santa brought for the granddaughters.  Before Niki, Eric, Ross and Vicky had their own families it was tradition for everyone to gather at Danny and Ann’s for Christmas morning breakfast.  Now with everyone having kiddos our breakfast gathering is smaller.  Mom, Chuck, Danny, Ann, Michael and I gathered about 9am for a delicious breakfast--Breakfast cinnamon rolls homemade cinnamon rolls compliments of Mom.

Santa was very, very good to Michael and me!!  I received an IPod Touch, books, journal,  Michael got a new Toshiba laptop, books, new jacket and vest.  I would say we are very, very blessed! 

People began coming by—Niki, Eric and the girls arrived, my Aunt Mary came by—we went for a walk, a cold, windy walk.  Uncle Frank Lee and Aunt Valeta stopped in to visit.  And we ate again—imagine that!  Danny grilled ribs, pork loins, we had fresh black eyed peas, corn, cornbread dressing, salad, fruit salad—can you say stuffed???  Afterwards we sat around and visited.  I’m sure that walk allowed me to eat more, right?? 

Here are some photos from today--Basketball The girls playing with one of Granny’s gifts—basketball and hoop.

Mom's Prize My grandmother pieced this quilt and gave it to my Aunt Margaret many years ago.  Aunt Marg hand quilted the quilt and gave it to my Mom yesterday—isn’t it gorgeous.  Does anyone know what pattern this is?? 

Merry Christmas, hope all our friends and family enjoyed their Christmas as much as Michael and I did.

  1. Those cinnamon rolls look scrumtious! Don't know anything about quilt patterns, though. Glad you had a nice time. :)

  4. You sound like you had an awesome Christmas Janna.
    The quilt looks wonderful

    I used to make cinnamon buns but haven't for a while I will have to keep that in mind next time I make my dough. The ones your Mom made look so yummy.

    One day closer to seeing you guys in the desert

    Take Care
