Old...Christmas....

 
 
Old...Christmas...
We had a Lovely Day...
The Kids came out....
We ate...too Much...
: )
but...it was all...good...
It was Fun...watching the Little Ones....
I had been up...til after 1:00...Christmas Morn...wrapping Gifts...
Then...up...early getting food put together....
When Katie and Justin arrived...Katie got going on the Food Trays...when Liz and Nick...arrived...Liz pitched in...
they did a Lovely Job!
{I had to keep the Guys....at Bay... they were hovering....: ) I said.."I want to Get a Picture...you'll have to wait...until they're DONE!!!"}
oh my...
Between meals...we opened Gifts...
The Little Ones...were so...good...
So...polite...
They Shared...and were so...Sweet....
Just as I was getting the Turkey out...
I heard a
Ho! Ho! Ho!!!!
It was Santa!!!
He...just walked right in!
That...was Priceless!!!
The Little Ones... were So Happy to See Him...
after all... He'd had a Long...Long...Night....!
but...it was the Adults...that had me in Stitches!
I wish...I could have gotten an Image of all of them!
They Were...Stunned!!!
{I had an idea...he might be stopping by....: ) {Santa and I...go...Way....Back...: ) Santa said...he'd like to take a few Presents...back...to the North Pole...: ) {he was eyeing the Old Hall Seat...: ) He said...he had Plenty of Room..on his Sleigh...for it...: )
 {You kinda have to watch...Old St. Nick...: ) }
John stayed at the top of the stairs...and everyone else...just...Froze!
Jaws...Dropped...
: )
Santa and the Little Ones...chatted away....
It...Was...Priceless...
Then...
we ate our Supper...
Everyone helped...clean up...
as everyone...said their Goodbye's...
We heard a Crash...
Miss. Scarlett...took a Tumble...down the stairs...
Oh My Lord!
She had a Major Goose Egg...
Liz was Crying...
Scarlett...in a few moments...seemed fine...but...
we all decided she should be seen....at the ER....
oh my....
She Is...Fine...
but...Soooooo Scary.....
{Guess Scarlett takes after...someone else...in The Family...oh dear...: ) }
Hope...You All...Had a Merry...Christmas...
and...ate a Little...Too Much..: )
Love...to ya...: )

I pulled one of my Favorite Staffordhire Platters out...and the Girls..Filled It! I Love...Using...these Old Beauties... I think...they Love...being a Part...of such a Special Occasion....too....
Justin...stripped down...almost...as he arrived..: )
{Justin Sr. used to do the same thing...: ) I could...Never keep clothes on that Child! : ) }
They had Great Fun...taring off all of the wrapping....
I had...Great Fun...Watching Them... : )
My Trusty...Kodak... gave me Fits....: ( but...I'm glad I captured a few good ones....even...blurry... I Love...this Image...: )
I helped Justin...with handing out the Gifts...
He'd hand me one...and say.."mine?"...so...sweetly...
If it wasn't...I'd show him the name...and he'd Happily take to the correct recipient....
What a Dolly... : )
Yep...He's a 'Melter'!
"Here...Daddy...This is for...You!"....
Sweeeet!
Nick, Liz...and Miss.Scarlett...putting on her Brand New...Coif...: )
I ran down the stairs...when I heard The Ho! Ho! Ho! to see...Miss Scarlett...in Santa's Arms....
 
They had Great Fun...Visiting!
Justin and Santa...Chatted away.....Like Old Friends....
It was a Full House...
The Kids...grabbed Paper Plates...
{that surprised me...}
I Think...They were So...Hungry...they just Grabbed was was Closest to The Table!
{I don't know...how those Kids...could Eat So Much! Holy Smokes! after all of the Snacks...I thought...maybe...they'd want to just take Supper Home...and eat it later...ahhh...Not So...Much...}
It was So...Nice...They all Chipped in...and helped Clean Up....
Ahhh...
Life is Good!

So glad you had a great day! I just love that you use old dishes to serve food...you really know how to put out a great spread! So funny that little Justin would rather be without clothes! Me and my brother would run around in the buff when we were kids...thank goodness we lived in the country. Poor little Scarlett...Thank god she is alright!
Happy New Year!
