Audra got me this bowl that I said I liked, but didn't buy. She swung in and bought it for me and I didn't know! Anna-Kate got me owl socks, candy and a little gnome she made last month and kept a surprise. Adrian got me a John Deere hat so we can match.
And my husband was surprised by all the great books he bought me.
After that, we opened presents from parents, our wonderful Mary, my dear aunt and uncle and a surprise package from Justin's high school friend (thank you!!!). It was all a delightful mix of books, crafts, vintage, homemade, personalized and just exactly what everyone loved.
And then daddy. Well, he's just the easiest to shop for. He got lots and lots of food. Plus the worst movie on the planet that he quotes from (Audra found it for $1 at a yard sale). And I can't believe it...I gave him a book and he dove right in and started reading it (he's not so into the rest of our bookish ways)!
Here is Adrian (the one who organized all the gifts, trash and recycleables as we opened and cleaned up all the mess after...his idea).
And his loot.
And her loot.
Then after Christmas, everyone was enjoying their new gifts and I got to just relax for a bit....other than the turkey feast I decided to make (why do I make more work for myself on Christmas, who knows?!).
