Time for a Little Rest


We had such a great Christmas! Christmas Eve went to my in laws and had a wonderful time. Then Christmas evening had my family over. We had a gift exchange which was a blast. Everyone buys a gift that could be for a guy or a girl. Then everyone gets a number. No. 1 goes first and picks a present from the pile. Then no. 2 goes next and they can either steal no. 1's present or pick from the pile. And so on with the rest of the numbers. This is the first time we had done this because the family is growing and we are all a little short on spending money. It was a blast! We will be doing it again next year. Then later we had a bowling tournament with our Wii game that we got about a month ago. That was so freaking fun! We had a lot of people playing Wii for the first time.

I got a new camera for Christmas from my hubby!!! A Canon EOS Rebel XS. It takes the most amazing pictures!!! I am so excited. The picture of the cardinal, I took right outside my sewing room window.

So now I can get back to doing a little sewing and taking some awesome pics!

That's a neat idea about the gifts, we pull names here and it has worked out great.

Have a wonderful New Years!

This must have been camera Christmas - I know lots of people that received them...our granddaughter for one.
Your gift exchange sounds like fun and I do think I will suggest something like this for our Christmas next year.
