Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Ray and I drove to Jetersville yesterday to spend the day celebrating Christmas with his parents.  It takes 2 ½ hours to get there but it’s beautiful country.  Cliff and Jeanette are active senior citizens and I love their Christmas traditions.  She puts up a small tree and has a collection of sentimental ornaments and some that aren’t ornaments at all.  Jeanette even puts brooches from her mother near the top of the tree.

She also has a snowman/snowwoman collection, some Santa’s and then there is her manger set.  She hand painted the ceramic figurines so it really is a treasure.  Unfortunately, my new camera lens and I haven’t gotten enough practice to do these photographs justice – but I’m sharing them anyway!

After eating lunch and watching some football, we started digging into our stockings – another great tradition – we took turns opening presents.  It was great fun!  It was very emotional for me to see how they took the time to look at their “home-made” present from us.  I will share what it was after everyone else getting this has opened their present…

It was a great time!

More family visiting tonight.

Have yourself a very Merry Christmas now!
