Hope Your Christmas Was Great

Hello, Dear Ones! I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas time. We certainly did. We did have snow too!
The above snap was from earlier last week but the snow coming down was so pretty and I just had to share it with you.
Mr. Precious could not wait to get out and use his snow blower. He's like a little kid.
On Christmas morning, Mr. Precious and I slept in, I made waffles and we exchanged gifts. I had cooked the day before and did a little more for the family coming over later in the day.
 Around 3:00 pm our little family showed up with smiles, excitement and gifts! Of course we had lots of gifts and goodies for the little ones. Each one got to wear a Santie hat and pass out the gifts.
Hurry, hurry, hurry! What is in here asked little Campie.

Dear daughter looking on. Carter showed up in her new robe! She was an owl.
 Her one wish was for a Barbie Dream Castle. I think it was called Rainbow Cove. She was so excited when she opened her 'perfect' present, as she called it. What joy to see Christmas through these little eyes of love. The excitement, wonder, talking about baby Jesus and looking to find where the Elf on the Shelf was hiding. :)
I have learned to set a rather simple table when the little ones are coming over as they like to explore and get in to the centerpiece. Hey, paper napkins work! 

I do pray you all were blessed with love and joy on this very special day. I want to thank you all for following along with my little blog. I love you and appreciate your friendship so much. Here's to a wonderful blessed 2017 with you all!

You are all my sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,

and wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,

And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;

"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."
~ sung by Nat King Cole
