Hailey got this wonderful gift from our friends, Billy and Kay. I love it because the bottle is attached and her clothes don't come off. They also gave her all the gear to go with her. She got a stroller, swing, diaper bag, carrier. She takes really good care of her baby. I can tell she's going to be a good mom someday. She even nurses it. It's so cute!
This was our big gift to Josiah. He loves old airplanes so we got him two Indiana Jones lego airplanes. He was thrilled!
Mom and Larry got Hailey this great coloring board toy. It plays music and the faster you draw or scribble, the faster the music plays. She was trying to draw flowers. She loves to draw and color. Completely the opposite of Josiah.
Here we are sitting down to our beautifully laid Christmas table. Menu: Rosemary/garlic boneless leg of lamb with a braised garlic/sherry sauce, garlic herb mashed potatoes, salad and sweet potato casserole. It was absolutely delicious! For dessert, Mom brought angel food cake and we added strawberries and whipped cream. After dinner, while Hailey took a nap, Larry taught Josiah how to play Battleship, while Mom and Grandma and I played a couple of rounds of Scrabble. Michael and Larry played some cribbage and we just visited and talked. Later that evening we used my mom's Fry Daddy and battered and fried some homemade onion rings, mushrooms, shrimp and potato rounds. I used coconut oil and it worked awesome as a frying oil. Not too greasy and no coconut after taste. Plus, it's not bad for you! Perfect end to a wonderful day. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to reading your Christmas posts.
