Magical wonderland~It's just Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  We are so happy to have ALL our kids
home this Christmas. I feel so grateful and so blessed!
 Our dining room is ready for the gang....however....everyone wants to move the dishes so they can have a sandwich or bowl of cereal...we just move stuff and then put it back....I'm sure it won't last log:~)
We have rules about how family must act during these special days....
RESPECTFUL AND COURTEOUS
(remember there are about 45-55 people....lots of loud relatives)
everyone must get at least 1 gift....so we have
a Christmas sheriff that makes sure everyone
is on the good list....and gets something....
During the year I picked up several reindeer at the 
thrift store...people seemed to want to get
rid of them....and I seemed to want to buy
them! Hahaha


Also notice the square glass vases below?  I painted them
with watered down glue and then sprinkled them with
glitter snow that had a little silver in it.
It just added a little bling...and I got the
vases for a dollar a piece at the thrift store
and yet they look very elegant!

each person has to share one funny story
and one memorable family moment....











In our family we make sure
 everyone gets a hug and a meal before they
head home....







Last we read the story of the nativity and all
little ones have to sit and listen....
then we sing
"Oh come let us adore Him"



 That was the dining room...here is a peek of the kitchen...it is red and white and covered with gingerbread men decorations.
"For unto a child is born, unto us a son is given...."
Blessings,
And Merry Christmas to everyone.
