I don't know about you, but the last week was a rush to the finish. I didn't take the time to blog nor did I respond to your lovely comments or even leave a comment on the blogs that I read. We were blessed to have #1 son and his family here for 5 days before Christmas and also celebrate with the rest of the family, my mom and a few friends, over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Today, I am staying in my PJ's all day and just recovering. To top it off I have been fighting a bad sinus infection all the while trying to make a nice Christmas for everyone.
So today I give you our week of Christmas with a lot of photos and a few words.

We had fun
Our 6 year old grandson was so excited with his dad's reconfigured old iphone made into an ipod for him to play with. He had so much fun taking photos and texting us from the other room. So cute!
The end of a wonderful Christmas.
I hope your Christmas was a joy.
I look forward to 2013.
I have lots of projects planned.
