Happy Day After Christmas ;)

Our elf did a lot of fun things, we're going to miss him. ;)
I hope everyone who celebrates it, had a very Merry Christmas yesterday!! We woke up to a note from the elf (who had to go back home). I'm going to miss the elf and his crazy antics (like the one photographed above).  

Santa filled the room w/Army men, they were everywhere!
And this could be the last blurry picture I post because Santa is a nice Santa who bought me a new camera. Have I mentioned lately how awesome I think "Santa" is? :)

Santa also filled every single nook and cranny of the room where we have our Christmas tree (including the entire floor) with little plastic Army men, and the things Army men need to work (like plastic Army planes, 'copters, tanks, etc.).   I guess Santa was hard at work while we were sound asleep. And Santa found an Army Man Lego Set too...because he's nifty like that... to say this whole set up was a huge hit with the youngest in our house would be an understatement. Guess it's a good thing he wrote Santa that letter. ;)

Santa needs a secretary, I think though, because the 'big present' my daughter got, she got from two people (including us). Looks like Santa's got some 'splainin to do, and baby darling girl has a decision to make. :)

Baby Grand will be here tomorrow, and I can't wait!
The grown kids are all coming in tomorrow (flying and driving, depending on the kid ;)), and new grandbaby will be here too.  Her other grandma e-mailed me this picture from yesterday, and all I could say was, awwww!!!!  I cannot wait to see her and kiss her little fat cheekers!!

I hope everyone's got their messes all cleaned up, gifts put away, etc., and can relax a bit today.  Hubby's lucky here, he's got the day off, woot!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

  9. Awww is right on this cutie pie. You'll have fun with her tomorrow.

    Everything is pretty much done except for the linens from the dinner table. I'll finish that up today. Outside of that you can't even tell anyone was here yesterday. Back on my sensible eating plan too. I've gained three pounds this month. Yikes.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  13. He wasn't nice to me. He doesn't even come to our house. I guess he's antisemetic.

  27. Your granddaughter is too cute :) My husband had to work the last couple of days so my youngest and I have been cleaning up after all the craziness of the holidays. He's more dumping out his toys rather than helping, but it will get done eventually ;) I hope you had a great Christmas!

  33. Oh My Gosh!! Your little Granddaughter is so cute-- and that look on her face--lol what a big surprised look. Your one lucky Grandma. Well, cleaning is going to take some time here-- I have started taking things and putting them away for the most part of the bathroom and kitchen and halls--got most of the holiday linens washed and folded ready to find the container they go in for an year. It took me over six days to decorate--I am sure it will take me that long to put everything away. We do have a couple elves that stay out all year long...they just are shelf setters watching all year long--lol. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see what else you will be posting soon.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I remember the days of army men! And I really thought my son would have been interested in them too :)

    You'll have to explain the elf on the shelf thing to me.

    Baby girl is just yum. Smooch her lots!

    Happy celebrating still.
