Our Christmas, 2011

Well.... I am going to start our Christmas adventure with our dog Joey,  our beautiful
 English Shepard.
(Joey tangled in the Christmas ribbon.)
After hours of setting up the tree....I had to re-due the tree this year!!!!
 Thanks to our faithful companion Joey (above).
For, this is what I found on our floor early Christmas morn.
(The remains of my peacock!!!)
Allow me to show you, what this gorgeous bird once looked like...
the absorbent price, I payed for this pretty birdie
at the speciality Christmas shop.
A place I do not frequent, because of the prices!!!!
(My blue Styrofoam and feathered Peacock, once graced my tree)
But I gifted myself this year....Isn't it beautiful?..
my doggy thought so too!
We found Joey, with blue paws that morning, sooo we assume..

 I think he must of had some help pulling my blue bird down...
Just look at those guilty Christmas eyes on Lucky Buttons!
(Buttons with Christmas fever)

So Mr.B...still in his PJ's, 
 I and Joey too, worked hard, to re-due the tree!!!
The tree turned out okay...But oh, I miss my  blue bird :(
I have to admit the tree looks a little bare with out the elegant peacock....

So, I added some new ornaments to make up for my loss...
For the love of grapes, I just love the way the light captures these grapes!
A windmill to represent our German town
I picked this fella for his blue wool sweater....
Thank goodness Joey didn't get the gift ornament Mr.B. got me 
"the peacocks nest"

 We went to bed late, after re-decorating the tree,
 and woke up very early to open our gifts from Mr. B's mom and dad...
I think it was 5am???

I am still wearing my "breath right strip", he he,  and my morning hair is a mess,
oh, and did I mention.... I broke my tooth on some Christmas candy...liquorish!
Thanks Ma, I always wanted a "Slap Chop"
Mr B. opens his...
Is joey still tired after hunting for peacocks the night before?
Frankie is at the opening
Lucky Buttons
Shhhh - Lucy Belle & Lilly Pad are still asleep!

Later that morning, After church....the grandchildren arrive!
Lets get a picture by the tree with my
 daughter Heather and my three grandchildren
Heather is pregnant with baby #4, a boy....
 Sibylla in her new Christmas dress, Lucious and Elijah

 The next day December 26th
Down stairs I set up my red tree...
Uncle Matt (my son) will help the kids out opening the big boxes....
First Elijah...Hurry Uncle Matt, put it down!!!

As a child, I never celebrated Christmas, so I am making up for lost time!!!

So I love love put up trees, decorate, cook till I drop, and 
wrap gifts until my fingers burn. 

The remainder of our guest arrive....

I am so grateful, to celebrate with members of my family...
 Jen. and her hubby Sct. and their two girls.( my great nieces)
 Pait. and Dan.
Thank you so very, very much for sharing this day with us.  
We also celebrated Mr.Bs Birthday. 
Poor guy, being born the day after Christmas... 
So we make Christmas extra special....
Oh boy, he's going into shock....
He never expected that...Something he's wanted for a long time....
(Eagles mean a lot to us!)
Happy Birthday hun!
Thanks to Mr. Bs mom for the birthday cake!!!

Time to eat turkey with all the trimmings!!!
Time to eat turkey and all the fixings, buffet style...
and, of course Joey....
I didn't do it... honest!
Good night and wishing ya all a....
