December 26

Hope you've had a good holiday, winter season so far. Or in some places of the world, summer season. We had utter chaos yesterday for Christmas. The kids swooped in opened their presents in a frenzy and swooped back out again! Our kids are the best.

I received my pottery platter I'd been hinting about--apparently not well enough because my daughter in law had to call my friend who creates the pottery to find out what I wanted.

And not only that she had her make me two soup bowls with a U in them. Most of you know I'm a big University of Utah fan, so I love them.

In case you don't know her, Tiffinie Helmer of Hobble Creek Pottery

Another thing I'd like to share is what Santa brought my granddaughter. She's not quite 5 yet. My son is the motorcycle enthusiast, both street and dirt. And of course out of 7 grandkids 5 boys and 2 girls, he has the girls.

I hope the rest of your holiday season is safe and wonderful. Remember to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. Click on the bag to the right for details!

The little one looks like she's having fun. Glad to see a helmet on her head

She was, but her sister really wanted to ride too. Ashlyn is only 16 months though.

Almost got Logan a four wheeler for Christmas, but then I didn't want to have to chase the thing down the street. May as well get him a runaway dog...Hah!

Who can resist kids at Christmas, even big ones? I was delighted today when my 26 year old son became delighted with a simple collapsing colander we found that I was able to buy him for Christmas. He's a good six inches taller than me, but I still thrill at seeing him excited about a Christmas gift! Such fun!

I so know what you mean about a runaway dog. We were dog sitting and I swear she thought we were dogNappers and the minute she was out of the car she took off. It took us almost an hour to round her back up.

Ron and I do not buy stuff for us. If we need something we get it--if we can afford it. So Christmas is ALL about the kids and grandkids. My favorite part is the thrill you're talking about!

The cutest motorcycle girl we have ever seen! Merry Christmas to you Mary and Ron. Judy
Isn't it great when you can give a perfect present? I know we bought a litle baby doll for my granddaughter who is 18 months and she loved that it sang to her. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that 2012 brings everyone much success!
