Christmas Stuff

I've got some Christmasy stuff to share today. It was a super quiet holiday here for us. We went to my MIL's house for breakfast, and then to my brother's for dinner. Very low key.

I received an amazing box of reindeer themed treats from Tessa just before Christmas. It was unbelievable. I didn't get a chance to take a photo before it all got distributed throughout the house! But I did just manage this snap of the adorable ornament she sent in that box o'gifts. Isn't this just the cutest?? Thank you so much Tessa - so unexpected, and I love it all!
OK, my niece Erin just put this pic up on my Facebook wall, so I snagged it... this is myself, my 21 year old niece Caitlin and my 16 year old niece Erin enjoying a moment before dinner on Christmas day...
I myself only took two quick photos before my camera disappeared into my purse again for the rest of the day... but fortunately one of the photos is of my third niece, newly turned 18 year old Nicole...
The other is of DH, Mike. Not a flattering pic, but I will share it!
And, here is my Lily - all bundled into a little nest she made out of a snowman blanket on a sofa in our house. She pretty much lives in this nest lately :-)

Hope everyone had a good holiday!

Currently Stitching: Stitching a Christmas ornament to put aside to be a gift later this year
