I just had to share a few more pics from Christmas! We had a grand time in Kansas. First time we have ever gone there for Christmas – my Sister and her family and my Brother usually come here. This year they had all just come here a couple of weeks earlier for our Grandma’s funeral, and my Brother started a new job immediately after returning home, so he would not have been able to come back for Christmas. It was a good year for us and my parents to travel west!
I did very little wrapping other than for the guest post I wrote. I handed most of it off to my 13-year-old. She got busy with the duct tape and the rest is history!
Some of my sister’s lovely decor. I think this ‘glisten’ banner would be a really fun idea to put on my ‘crafts-to-make’ list.
The angel on top of the Lego nativity my Nephew built.
Wise Men and their camel.
Shepherds, sheep and a drummer boy. Isn’t that drummer boy just the best?! My Nephew did all this from scratch – I think it is just wonderful!
We tend to be Colts fans. And also Peyton Manning fans. My Nephew stuck with Peyton, while My teenager stuck with the Colts!
Larke has decided she wants to be a scientist. (of course since this is the year I decided to skip science) She was thrilled with her lab coat and goggles. She also got a science kit but it had to be left behind on the pile for my Mom and Dad to bring home. We just didn’t have enough room to get everything in.
The details in the Lego sets today is just amazing! I could get into putting a set together myself I think!
Mannequins in the window of the Emporium. Like I said – Awesome detail!
Chandelier – I bet if you bought millions of clear Legos and made a huge chandi for your living room it would be a big hit – you are welcome for the idea 😀
There is even a window washer for the Emporium!
Becca was finally able to put a set together all by herself – her sisters were busy with their own sets! They tend to talk her into letting them put her stuff together. It was so fun to see her realize she COULD do it! She put her garage and cars together all by herself. WooHoo!
It was an awesome holiday and now we are facing a whole new year – spread out before us, clean and white and empty. What will we fill it with? What memories will we make this year? What goals will we meet? May we one and all strive to do ALL to the glory of God!
