Christmas Day...

 okay not my best photo...
but I wanted to show you the cute bag my Mom made me...
we were not exchanging gifts this year...
but that didn't stop Mom...
she did something for all of us...
 Hotrod loved his puzzle...
yes he decided to wear his Woody shirt for Christmas...
(his Halloween costume)
this is the apron Mom made for my daughter...
well I had to do a little something for the girls..
so I made a Peppermint sugar scrub...
had the jars...had the ingredients...

it's just sugar...a little food coloring...
vitamin E oil...baby oil...
a crushed up peppermint cane...
it really feels good on dry hands or feet...
can also be used as a body scrub..

this is the apron my Mom made DIL...so cute...
my daughter also knitted us girls circle scarfs...
she just started knitting and did a great job....
she also made Hotrod a stocking hat...

 my daughter got Hotrod a camo tent...
it was a hit....he can zip and unzip all by himself...

a little snow dance with his Mom....

I love the homemade gifts! I think I'll suggest that for our family for next year.....except that I don't make anything! Yikes! I love the bag and those aprons are adorable! I love aprons! I wear them when I sit with the dogs so their little claws don't make holes in my shirts!

I love your pictures! And that peppermint scrub? Great!

Looks like a good time was had by all! Happy New Year!

looks like a Christmas that is so
nice. The gifts so perfect. Talent and not worrying about the modern fancy, not the average pantsy gifts . Practical and down to earth. Back to the days when my Mom was alive. Glad you are in that mode as a family. You do not see that much so this was a delight of pictures.

The family and the happiness that shows.

love the last picture it was a hoot you dancing with the young one!

Thanks for sharing.
