I love christmas!

 I thought it would be easiest to make a few collages of Christmas pictures..  well, I ended up with 6 of them.  sometimes I worry that my blog page will be slow to open for some people if there are too many pictures on it.  I hope that's not the case and I'm sorry if it is.  
We had a great Christmas.  I stayed home this year and didn't go to my mother in laws for dinner.  It has gotten too hard to have everyone over and then rush them through the morning to send them off and then for us to leave.  It was sooooo nice to take my time and not worry about how fast the cinnamon rolls got done and how fast the we opened presents..  We've been going to my mother in laws every year for probably 39 years.  Tony still took off in the afternoon and went there for a bit.  shes an hour away so he was gone for several hours.  I'm glad he went to see her and I'm glad I stayed home! lol!
 We were all massively spoiled as usual.  I really did try not to go overboard... but I'm a little worried that I'm not capable.  There are 18 of us now.  so I cant go too crazy!  lol!  I love to give them gifts!  I just cant help it!  lol!  I just try to make it as special and magical as I can.  I feel like that's my job.  lol!  Someday when I'm gone.. I just want them to remember these holidays.    Anyways.. I'm don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon.. ;)
 The kids were all sooooooooo stinking adorable and soooooooo good!  the day was just perfect.  I just wallowed in it all day.  And my kids truly spoiled me.  I am blessed with a loving, giving family.. and best of all.. they all love Christmas too!  they get that from me..  lol..  their father just tolerates it!  LOL!

 I fell asleep early Christmas night and slept for 8 hours...   unheard of for me..  and Ive been tired ever since! LOL!    I need a project to get my fire lit again! lol!
 aren't they all adorable?  they melt my heart!  
And then these pictures below..   thank goodness for Bethany and her selfies!  LOL!  shes a nut.. they all are..
I love the one of my 4 kids above.. don't those boys look happy?  there goal is always to make some gnarly face for the camera!  lol!
OK.. I guess I should get ready for work.  Have a wonderful day!
and in case I don't get back here before the weekend..  Happy New Year!
