Enjoyed a Lovely Christmas Day
Here is our sweet grand baby Olivia on her very first Christmas morning! Her bib was made by a cousin's wife with a new Bernina machine. She is also a new Grandma so when doing bibs she made these up to share with our grand baby too!
Yes we got up very early and off we went to their home along with DIL's parents.  Changing the tradition of having Christmas morning here.
Kids put on a nice spread. Enjoyed it all so very much!!

We all had to pack up and head to DH's sister's home for dinner. We had prepared our portion day before. Fixed two desserts, Pumpkin Roll and mincemeat pie, along with a butterbean with corn dish.
I did sew  up a couple quick gifts for our two nephews. I made the Rice Heating Pads. They both seem to have more aches and pains these days! Close to and turning 50 can do that to ya! :-)

We still have more baking and treats to get together to mail out or take on visits.
Hope to do the visiting across state soon. DH promised to help son, who has week off, do some kitchen remodeling. This will give me time to finish up more sewing too!
Still have the pretty decorations up. Will save the take down job for later!

Friday found us just laying about, sort of wore out! We babysat Olivia Christmas Eve day and then had late supper with nephew, wife and our sweet grand niece Hollyanne. Course all the traveling Christmas Day too! Did do some sale shopping Saturday. Was not to bad out at all. Crowds must have been out of town!
Found a few good bargains for next Christmas. Popped into AC Moore with my 20% off coupon. They have nice name brand fabric regularly for $6.99 yard so used that coupon! Enjoyed lunch out. 
When we got home we once more just kicked back relaxing!
Kitties were so happy we were home again. They did not like us being gone so much!

Today had to do some home chores. Yes on Sunday. I normally do not do that but we needed clean clothes and bed linens changed!! So two loads later that was done! Did the fridge clean out and trash was taken off. DH changed oil in his truck.
I really have to keep checking the calendar to be sure of the day! Any holiday that comes on a week day can mess me up! Like Christmas day felt like Sunday!!

Do hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!!
Here we are close to another New Year's Day!!
