Joy bought a house a few years ago. It was in good shape and it a great neighborhood, but it needed a bit of updating. Most people would not think a modern kitchen faucet was a great Christmas gift...
..but Joy did!
Blake and Joy love to entertain, especially in the Summer. Recently Blake bought a wonderful bar-b-que pit, so we thought he would enjoy this outdoor game...
..called (and I HATE this name) Corn Hole!
I love this picture because it proves that opening Christmas gifts is a lot of fun - even for adults!
Here is Don opening up a weather station. He had one a couple of years ago that we both really enjoyed, but hurricane Ike killed it!
My 'Big' gift was a riding corset that both our daughters bought for me. I have posted all about it on the Riding Aside blog. This gift however, was hinted for too. It is a hand painted flat swing. I can't wait to hang it in one of the beautiful old oak trees!
Each of us received several more gifts, but I did not get pictures of them all. This was a wonderful Christmas that could have only been improved if Emily, Daren, Madison and Trestin were here with us.
