Our Christmas Day

....began at 4:45 a.m. when we were awakened by a sick dog, but our grands got up less than an hour later anyway. Their stockings were hung on their doors and they all climbed into Jackson's top bunk to check them out while their folks got the coffee started and the tree lights on.




Dylan had awakened during the night and saw the stockings swinging on the door; he told me that he knew he barely missed seeing Santa. Thankfully, Santa did leave lots of presents even though it was such a close call.


Santa had tucked some way behind the tree so it was important to check it out again to see if they had missed any.


All three of them are opening treasure boxes from Grandpa and me. There will be more posted about what was inside these later.


After the kids opened all of their fabulous gifts, we took a break to bake our favorite Monkey Bread and enjoy eating our traditional Christmas morning breakfast casserole.


Later, there were gifts for Sandee and Shawn and Grandpa and ME too!


















Dora had gotten sick again after the kids opened gifts and we had breakfast...scary sick...so Rich took her to a vet. We were all greatly relieved to learn that she had a bacteria imbalance in the bowel that would heal quickly with a bland prescription diet and antibiotics. And she did; her symptoms did not reoccur. For the rest of the day though, she just wanted to snuggle on the couch. Bella of course had to snuggle right there too...giggle.


Lovin' Life ~~ And Happy Holidays!
