We Always Have Fun with Christmas Stockings.....

I know it is January 
but I have to share just a bit 
about our fun with Christmas Stockings 
this year.  

We didn't get to open them 
until New Year's Eve when Allan, 
Bev and Betsy were here.  
We wouldn't have wanted to 
open them any sooner because 
it just would not have been the same.

The hit "this year" were 
these silly glasses that Warren's mom 
got for Mikey.  

 

 
First he accidentally broke
them as he was trying to get them 
out of the package...but they were 
mended fairly easily.  



 Then they were handed around the 
room so that everyone take 
a turn at looking silly.

 Allan....Mug Shot?

Bev...I don't think these are quite right.
 Grandma Georgia...who bought the glasses in the first place.

Grandma Ruth...You are a hoot!

Oh my word, You'll never believe this but
Blogger won't let me upload the rest.
Must be that Warren and I were 
just that ugly in
them......

Well, you get the idea.
Other fun items in our stockings were
scented pencils.  
Everyone got them but not everyone 
had the same scents...
causing some
"angst".

Itty bitty cameras that showed
vintage Christmas Pictures when you 
click the shutter.

Some, but not all, received
kumquats.
Because some, but not all, 
really enjoy them.
Chelsea accidentally received a shriveled
kumquat remaining from last year.

There was chocolate and nuts,
lots of little surprises to be found.
Every year that ends up being the 
most fun of the gift exchange.

Although, I am not sad at all
at the gift of shelving Allan and Bev
gave me for my new workspace when 
I find it.

Warren is not crying about his new 
recliner from the Moms
and I love the new microwave 
from them, as well.

Hope your Christmas was 
Merry.  Filled with Joy.

I'm finally letting it go....
Now on to 2012!!

I see a strong resemblance between all your family members all of a sudden. LOL

What fun times your family has!

Love your lemonade pitcher header. The biggest hit of this season has been a musical monkey, bought at the drugstore after Christmas. I keep him in the office and he is very popular. Have a great weekend!

Those moms get together to gift? Wow! That's pretty cool. I'm just here from Pondside where she discusses that she and her daughter's future mil are like sisters without all the childhood baggage. Pretty cool.

So, when Blogger gets itself righted, will you post those missing photos?

Way cool... Is that your family on those FosterbGrants?

Aw come on, Becky! Try those pictures of you again with the googly glasses on!

My kids always love their stockings more than their gifts. We always do some silly presents in theirs, too! Glad you all had a great Christmastime!
