We worshiped and celebrated the birth of Jesus.
We spent some time visiting with good friends.
Then we came home to prepare our dinner
and open the gifts under our tree.
The first package to arrive in the mail, came from friends in North Carolina.
A beautiful Pashmina and coordinating Wallet.
Check out what it says on the hangtag,
“Always be yourself,
unless you can be a mermaid.
then always be a mermaid!”
Hubby and two of my long time friends know I love to wear blue.
A soft sweater and warm socks
to keep me warm in the New Year.
Would you like to see what’s in the cute carton?
A candle, appropriately named
“Dashing through the Snow”
It smells delicious.
A Nostalgic Aroma of Old-Fashioned Candy Canes
are brought to Life with Frosted Peppermint
and Sweet Ribbons of Vanilla.
Sister-in-Law and my CA friend added a spark to our kitchen.
Cookies, Spice Rub, Christmas Baking Cups, Beverage Napkins,
Bee’s Wrap, Mini Rubber Scrapers, and more!
The biggest new addition to my Kitchen is a Cuisinart
Grind and Brew Single Cup Coffee Maker.
Thank you, Hubby.
Personal Care items are always a good gift.
Hand Soap, Body Wash, and Hand Cream are used daily.
A cute fingertip towel from my CA friend.
Notice the plastic wrap on the right.
No, they are not cookies…
They are Shower Steamers, like a bath bomb for your shower.
It releases fragrance for a spa like aromatherapeutic experience.
I tried the Lemon…it is so refreshing.
This box from the Grandchildren, aka their parents,
was right on time until the USPS sent it on a tour
of the Western part of our State.
We were happy to extend our Christmas an extra day.
“Is it for Me?”
Super cute fabric gift bag…
…it was stuffed with all these goodies.
Sweet and Savory Snacks.
Gourmet Olive Oil
Fresh new Kitchen Towels
And a Task Pad
Which this Papa and Gigi are fighting over.
So maybe he won’t mind if I write his “Honey-Do” List
On the cute note pad?
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
The best gift of all
is spending time with those that we love.
