Some more Christmasing...

Since the boys are leaving for Christmas this year, we had ours early...this is the table of food stuffs. Mr. Tony made his first turkey (totally succulent I might add) & batch of caramels! Christmas this year was great, we started two new ideas we hope to make traditions. I had the boys make each other a present & we also did the 3 present thing, one representing each of the gifts given to Christ. 1.) Gold--the gift of fun, the must-have toy, etc. 2.) Myrrh--the gift of usefulness, clothes, etc. 3.) Frankincense--the gift of meaning, a hand-made article, etc. Loved it!
When we were little we kids would organize my Dad's sock drawer many times for his present. The weird thing? He LOVED it! Tony wanted some new work socks, so the boys completed the present by matching all the socks in his drawer & we wrapped all the loners up with his new socks. Then of course they sent him on a treasure hunt to find it!
The cat was even included in the festivities

Our favorite present (the boys still think she's the best thing EVER!)

I love that idea of the 3 different gifts! I just may have to steal that from you :)
Your little girl is DARLING!
