Christmas Day

And a beautiful one it was here on Barnes-Hill in Arkansas.  After a delicious late breakfast (Granny, aka my sister and PawPaw, aka my BIL had to go watch the grandkids open presents) we all got out in the sunshine and took a long walk—working off some of this food we’ve been enjoying!!

We spent the rest of this day visiting between the houses, eating, laughing and opening more presents!  Late this afternoon Niki and her gang arrived—and more presents were opened.  I think the girls were thrilled with their Granny and PawPaw gifts! 

DSCN0017See the handbag on the coffee table, it’s made by the Dooney & Bourke Company and is the Duck Dynasty version of the popular “duck” handbag.  It was Eric’s gift to Niki and she loves it! 


Michael has been playing with his remote control helicopter and the GPS mounts for both jeep and ATV he received.  I am learning how to use my first Nikon camera.  All my other digital cameras have been Canons—my favorite Canon, the PowerShot SX30IS died—the view finder is kaput and I intensely dislike using the LCD screen for photo taking.  I toyed with the idea of sending the Canon for repair but the cowboy said, “then you have a three year old, obsolete, repaired camera.”  All righty then!!  We had been looking at the Canon PowerShot SX60 camera on Amazon but while in Costco back before Christmas I noticed this package deal on a Nikon CoolPix P600 with a 60X wide optical zoom.  The camera came with SD card, case, lens cover and a whole bunch of other stuff—less expensively than the Canon.  So, I am learning! 

Emmi has spent the day playing with her new balls and having a ball being entertained by Elizabeth and Leah—she will miss them. 


We are heading out in the morning—I am sad, very sad—I love my family but it’s time to head on down the road and hopefully find some warmer temperatures!
