Christmas time

We had a very nice Christmas. It was smaller this year because Mr. Stryder wasn't able to visit but it was nice and cozy. I love not having to rush out in to the traffic with everyone else and stress about getting somewhere. It's just too hard. We had gone to Virginia right before and that was enough travel time for us! :)

We spent Christmas Eve with Grandma and Grandpa B-Honey next door. Haven got some perfume making equipment, stuff to make some crazy bracelets for her friends and a kit to make some flavored lip balm. My sister and her son Mike came over for dinner and presents.

Miss Haven also got a very nice handmade blanket from her Aunt Wendy in CA. Immediately she had to put it on her bed.

Haven also received a care package from Angel Hugs and Matt's Helpers Foundation. Project Angel Hugs sent her a bag of reindeer food so she could sprinkle it all over the yard. She hit every corner of the back yard with Deez putting the food down for the reindeer.

With our tree ready she was ready for bed so Santa could come. My family tradition is to open the presents from family on Christmas Eve....Haven isn't a fan and doesn't like to open presents early. So after much begging from me and her dad she allowed all of us to open one or maybe two presents.

One of the presents Haven picked was from her Grandpa B-Off and Grandma Sing (Fowler grandparents in Utah). It was a beautiful scarf made by Grandma. She immediately wrapped it around her neck and stayed in it the rest of the night.

Christmas morning!!! Haven got every one up at the crack of dawn and headed down the hall screaming!!! First up was the stockings and then she played Santa and handed out all the presents!

Looks like Miss Haven and Deez were good girls. Finally I get to open my presents from family too!!! We also received some beautiful cards from our friends. One of them we received was from our newest friends in South Africa. Thank you Tarren and Jessie! We loved the angel ornament!


On Sunday we had a little bit of snow which Deez absolutely loved. We dressed her up in her new Christmas sweater and she headed out to play with Dad's RC car. They weren't out too long since it was so cold but she definitely had a great time!!!

We hope everyone had a nice Christmas. We're looking forward to another long weekend for New Years!

    What a wonderful Christmas you and your family had! I'm so glad you did. I hope you have lots of fun playing with your presents and making all those craft kits.

    Bye for now.
