DH plays Santa for some families in church ever year and this year we got to be Santa for our grandson. We spent Christmas eve with Brandie, Micah, and Jr. Jr. was not even afraid of Santa! Here is myself, DH (Santa) and Jr. What a happy boy!
Thanks to Bethany I made roasted butternut squash seeds. They were so good that they disappeared shortly after coming out of the oven. :o)
This years economy made way to a homemade Christmas. This is a little wooden house and family that Chuck makes from wood. Then I do the painting. This one is Brandie, Micah, and Jr's. Brandie loves skulls so I painted the family in hoodie's with skulls. I am so glad they liked it.
DH made this wonderful wooden toy for Jr. It rolls across the floor and makes the sound similar to those stand up toys (popcorn popper). Jr loves it. Brandie loved it so much she asked her dad to make some more in different sizes so the sounds are different. DH has already made Jr. 2 more. A new tradition has been born. Grandpa has to make Jr a wooden toy each Christmas.
Because we spent Christmas Eve with Brandie and the family Christmas day was quiet and simple. Tofurky roast was the main attraction.
What a mess, but boy is it good. Susan's Green bean casserole, potatoes and gravy, carrots, broccoli, stuffing, and the best cranberry sauce ever thanks to Veggie girls great advice.
