Christmas Day and Cute Grandsons

On Christmas Eve, DS and I made lefse, a Norwegian potato pancake, which is a Christmas tradition for us.  I rolled them out and he cooked them.  Yum Yum!!

The stockings are filled and presents ready under the tree.

Eli's shirt says he's been a good boy all year!

 Christmas breakfast before opening presents.

Eli in the shirt I made for him.  It's kind of big for him, but that's OK.

Eli and me.  What a sweetie!

Jonah is passing out the gifts.

How many new toys can a boy play with???

Jonah wearing the pilot's hat from his uncle and the shirt I made for him.

We had a wonderful time and we'll be sad to go.  DS will be deployed in about 2 weeks.  Today we move on to Florida so we can be with Abigail for her birthday!  More excitement!
