Christmas Day And The Day After!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas day!!

We had a lovely time at my daughter's house.
This was her first Christmas as a married woman.

She made a really great Italian meal for us. It was delicious. This is Max, one of her 4 cats. He is the biggest cat that I have ever seen.

Max really liked the wrapping paper.She made a yummy cake for dessert. She got to use all of her new bake ware. (Wedding presents)

I took these pictures with my new camera that I got from Santa, aka my husband. It's the cutest little tiny red Kodak 8.2 mega pixels. So I have to practice using it.

Now here it is the day after Christmas, and what comes in the mail??? A package from Louise at
I won her giveaway. (My first time winning anything) It all came in this huge stocking.

Everything was wrapped so cute in pink and green.

Look at all of the treasures she sent me. It was so sweet of her. Thank you so much Louise!!!

It was so much fun to get a package the day after the big day.

How cute is this stuff??

Have a wonderful evening!

Wonderful gifts, sweet awards and a lovely Christmas! You deserve each one...

Stunning picture of you and your handsome husband...oh 1956 was a good year huh? I am a 1956 kid myself! : )

I wish you lots and lots of joy in 2008 dear Rosemary.

Congrats on your stocking win, Rosemary! Sounds like you had a really nice holiday. I wasn't aware until now that Santa knew so much about megapixels. :) Well, I suppose even elves have to upgrade their tech knowledge these days, to keep up.

Best wishes to you!
