Christmas morning at our house always includes three things:  1. Orange Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast, 2. Reagan playing Santa Claus, and 3. Lots of laughing.  This year wasn’t any different except Todd and Terrance joined us.  Amazingly enough, the kids all stayed in bed until nearly 9, even though they had been awake for quite some time.

Not only did Harley get the “baller” socks she wanted, she got two pairs, and one was even OSU!  She’s a happy girl!

Emma got a new camera to document all her adventures as a Senior and once she moves away from home next year.

Mom got a nice new step stool so she can reach all those high places in the kitchen.

The best gift of the day was this blanket that Harley and Emma made for my mom.  They thought of the idea and executed it all on their own, and they could not wait for Nana to open it!  The two of them have the biggest, most loving hearts, and I was sure they were going to make their Nana cry. I am so so so very proud of the two of them and their wonderful hearts.  To everyone’s surprise, Nana didn’t cry; however, she admitted later that she was working really hard to hold the tears back. 🙂

Our Christmas was small, laid back, and wonderful.  I don’t think any one of us would change a single thing from the day.

  1. I can attest that the tears were not far below the surface and every time I wrap myself in that blanket they are right there. What fine, loving girls and what a wonderful family and friends I am blessed to call my own….Todd and Terrance….(and others) the stool has already worked hard….upstairs and downstairs pantries and canned goods are all organized and the Christmas wrap and bows are securely stashed until next year. I can’t wait to wear my beautiful new necklace to work next week, Reagan, and also my new watch!! Love you all lots….
