Christmas Morn Re-Visited

Good morning dear sweet friends!
Well Christmas came and went so fast at our home,
that I thought I would share a few pics
of Christmas morn at the old homestead.

It was a beautiful snowy morning...
for those of you who like the white stuff.
It was pretty as the snow stuck to everything.

A view of our wagon with the state land in the background.

Our new porch...complete with rails now.
Santa left my grandson a bike out on the porch.
Not sure why? But he loved it anyway!

Inside we were all toasty and warm.

Bob started a fire and it was nice!

The trees were all aglow.

I think the big guy liked his image sitting on this fine steed.

This Santa overlooked everyone as this small red dry paint cabinet
is perched about 10 feet high.

The dinner table was set.
Winterberry pattern dishes from Pfaltzgraff.
The glasses were a gift from my then 10 year old son.
He purchased them at Arby's.
For those of you who do not know what Arby's is.
It is a fast food roast beef restaurant.
He is now 30 and I still love them!

Dinner was unconventional.

Bob wanted to grill steaks for everyone.
We visited our local meat market and had them cut
a whole sirloin into steaks.
I made twice baked potato, corn and green bean casserole.
My mom made her homemade rolls and broccoli cheese casserole, 
thinking we were having ham.
It was yummy!

We did not tell anyone the dinner menu and they were all surprised.
The steaks must have been good, cause none were left.

Dessert was chocolate and cherry pie and my mom's homemade cinnamon rolls.

That sums up our Christmas day.
Presents were unwrapped and the grands spent the night.
Mikalya beat everyone in the Memory game.
Michael enjoyed his Kindle Fire.
Then they spent the next day sledding.

It was nice having the house filled with love and joy.
I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas like I did.

In my next post I will show you both my birthday and Christmas presents. 

Christmas Past Blessings To All!
