More about Christmas

Christmas day started out like any other. We got up and did farm chores. Once that was done, we headed back for the house and the boys looked through their stockings. Andy put cinnamon and orange rolls in the the oven. After a nice little breakfast, we opened presents. As you can see, Sonya is always in the middle of things.

John was suprised to get a toolbox for his tractor. It's a red metal box that bolts to the redbelly fender. It is exactly what used to be on these tractors -- found a site where you can order parts.

Andy got a laptop to use for school. It's an IBM Thinkpad. Can you see the look of suprise on his face? He never expected to get this!
Tim got a set of end tables that match his coffee table. No wonder his present was soooo heavy! I got a new porcelain house. This one is a fire station. John made me a shelf for all my houses this week. Now that can all be displayed. It looks fantastic.

We had a terrific Honeybaked Ham, (thanks Tim) macaroni and cheese casserole, green bean casserole, and crescent rolls. Chocolate Mint Mousse pie for dessert.

All in all it was a wonderful Christmas. We were so happy to have both boys with us.
