Mom had her table set in blue.
It was really pretty.
This is what everyone sat down to.
After dinner she got out the carom board. Have you ever played carom? It’s kind of like pool except your fingers are the pool cues.
Mom made lasagna!!! Her lasagna is the best I have ever had. Everyone else agrees with me.
Gracy getting ready to dig in.
Then we decided that all the gifts had to be homemade.
Kamille and Justin drew out Mom’s and Megan’s names. They made candles in wine bottles that they cut off themselves. Pretty impressive.
Nic had Kamille’s name, he made reindeer out of a six-pack of beer and some coasters for her beverages.
Bill had Big Ran’s name. Trust me, he really did like his Osborn green and orange Christmas bulbs. What a hilarious picture!!!
Megan had Kayli’s name and made her a cool teacher crayon wreath and some zebra coasters.
Mom had Madison’s name. She made her a picture frame with pictures of Madison and Dad, and other pictures of Mom and Dad in their younger days.
It is awesome!
Here is a picture of the super heroes and their capes. Bill, Nic, and Justin, I’m sure they are probably wearing these capes now!!
Yes, that’s right, Mom went all out! It was a great time!!
Oh yeah, Kayli, I am still waiting on my homemade gift!!!!!
For Christmas at my mom’s house this year we drew names and the only rule about the gifts were that they had to be homemade.
Big Ran and his tape measure getting our project started.
Madison is in the background doing what she does best…………..TEXTING!!!
Being a left-handed person, I can’t cut anything. I try not to use scissors at all. So, Big Ran did all the cutting.
These were fairly simple to make. I used 1 yard of blue and 1 yard of black fabric for the capes. Big Ran cut out the emblems and I spray glued everything together. Just added velcro to keep them together. See, fairly simple.
I have more pictures of the projects that everyone else made coming. Stay tuned.

Our neighbors put in a new tub at their house and gave us the box for the grandkids to play in.
Kids love boxes!!! Especially really big ones!
Kennedy was very excited, as you can tell.
Here she and Hudson are inside playing.
She colored, used the markers, and put stickers on as much of it as she could. It was an all day thing.
Then we got out the ornament kit to make the kids handprints for their mother for Christmas.
Kennedy did very well at it.
Michael’s handprint was a little tougher to make.
Then it’s back to the box.
Thanks Tom and Nancy for thinking of us!
My granddaughter, Kennedy and I got out the paints yesterday.
Whew!! What fun!!
This is what we used.
Because that is what we had around the house.
The little hearts were made by her little index finger.
Then were poured some red glitter over the heart before it completely dried so it would stick.
Next Kennedy wrote the I and the U above and below the glittered heart.
