Mama's Christmas

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I sure did! We had the best time with all of our friends and family this year.
I want to share my family's favorite gifts and moments during this week, and since I still can't get the kids to sit still long enough for pictures, I'm going to share mine first. I have been needing a good coat because we will be heading to the mountains soon for a little getaway (I am hoping to see snow!) and my mom must have read my mind because she got me this. But then I started noticing that everyone and their brother had this style coat.....So I gave mine a little personal touch by crocheting some flowers and adding a little wool felt and embroidery. Now that's more like it.
I even added a little flower to the back shoulder.
I also got some new shoes! I'm usually not much of a shoe person, but these needed me....and I needed them. I don't even have to tell you how much I love this cup. It holds coffee. and it is my favorite colors. We're talking love at first sight here. And just when we thought there were no more gifts to open we found these in our chicken pen. Christmas chicks! By last night all of the eggs had hatched and we now have 12 baby chicks to love and enjoy! What a sweet Christmas gift.
Here is mama hen taking care of her little flock. Yeah, about that outfit Madeline has on, that is her Christmas PJ's, a princess dress-up dress, her new apron, and some new rain boots. The kid's got style. What can I say? LOL!

I love the little chicks- they are so adorable! It looks like you got some great gifts- the embellishments on your new jacket look fantastic!

Merry Christmas!

Hey Samantha,

Just wanted to comment so you would know that I got your reply. And related to that mystery I'm glad we got that solved that could have turned out not so nicely for your other cousin. I'm SO glad it didn't. I would have felt terrible. But since it didn't it was hilarious.:)

Maddy's outfit is great! She would fit right in with our girls any day! Love your new shoes, too. Glad you had such a nice Christmas with family and friends. We did, too, and it was such a blessing! Take care. Have a happy New Year. I may not be back to visit your blog for awhile as we head back to Peru on Thurs, Jan. 1 and things will be a bit nuts the rest of this week and after we arrive. Just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you, friend. Love ya.

Hey I got a new coat too for Christmas, a northface one. Mine's a darker blue though. Alan was sick of me always wearing his. :)
