Family Times

We decided it was time to move the shrink-wrap machine from our current house to the new house. It is an extremely heavy machine, and it took Nathan, Christopher, Joseph, and John to get it up the stairs.

We had an early mini-Christmas with my grandparents, since they’ll be visiting my aunt and uncle for Christmas. Here are some pictures you might enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Abigails favorite part was the least expensive part--the wrapping paper. What good is something unless you can try it?!

Grandma blesses us with doing lots of our ironing before trips. You should see all the clothes we send over :-). We bought her a new ironing board for Christmas!

  1. I love pictures. Thanks for sharing…

    I am just curious for being naive. Where do you put your presents? I know in some family they put it under a christmas tree. As you can see I am pretty confuse on how to celebrate Christmas.

    My side of the family we do not celebrate Christmas. My mother-in-law and husband just give the gifts to me. But my friends they have my name on the present & place it under the tree.

    I love the matching set of the outfit of you and your sister….did you make it? **smiling**great work….

    Annie~We put our presents in the living room :-). We’ve done that for many years since we don’t have a Christmas tree!

    We didn’t make our matching outfits. One year, I bought my jumper, and the next year, we found a matching one for Anna!

    Everyone tries to find things that the would bless the others. Clothes and tools are probably the most common. Over the years a lot of Bibles have been given. Of course things for the kitchen for Teri are likely (and were given).

    God bless.

    I always enjoy reading your updates and seeing pictures. I can imagine how much ironing your Grandma does, my ironing pile is always huge. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for sharing and may you have a blessed day today and a very Happy and Blessed New Year!

  7. Love the pictures! The baby is so cute. Hope you had a blessed Christmas. Every one looks happy and healthy.

    My family also enjoys useful gifts. I recieved a few excellent cookbooks and some small kitchen appliances. For my husband, I secretly saved fastidiously all year and paid off ($2,500) my step daughter’s braces. He was stunned and grateful. God bless your family!
