Maggi our beagle dog all decked out in her Christmas red dress...happily looking at the commotion as my parents and Peter arrived!
My Mom and Dad having a great time as I played with my new Keurig coffee maker that I got from Will and his siblings. I came back with some strong cups of coffee for them. We also ate the Kerstkrans which is a delicious almond pastry in a light flaky crust.
Frank having a good time...
We also skyped with Kara...she opened her packages from Opa and Oma, and Boycat came to say hello! Although we missed Kara being here in person, it was fun to include her in the festivities via the computer.
Peter and his girlfriend Catherine cuddling on the chair next to the Christmas tree which had too many presents underneath to count!! Since we open presents one at a time and take turns, it did take us a good three hours to open them all. It's all in the anticipation and appreciation of it all!!
Peter got his long awaited cheese knife and a big hunk of Gouda cheese as one of his many presents!
Will was happy with his leather jacket...I hope he gets long use of it and keeps him warm!
My Mom a.k.a. Oma was very happy with her new pair of Uggs!!!
And our Maggi doggy looking on with a happy face...she had fun inbetween some of her doggy naps!!!
So another Christmas has come and gone!! They seem to come faster every year!! This is one tired Santa!!!
I'm an almost 56 year old woman. I'm mother of three almost grown up kids, Will, 24, Kara, 22, and Peter, 20. I've been married for over 24 years to Frank.
I love to do creative things like needlework, cross stitch in particular, knitting and crocheting.
