Christmas part 1 was done on Christmas Day spent with my daughter and friends. Then it suddenly became time to have Christmas part 2. The presents were placed under tree and I decided to do a beef roast and carrots in the slow cooker as well as oven brown red potatoes and steamed asparagus. My son had to work so the celebration could not begin until after 3 p.m.
My daughter and son-in-law arrived first and I we enjoyed watching the hockey game as well as some football. That and some great conversation helped pass the time waiting for my son and family to arrive.
Finally my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter arrived. My granddaughter wished us Happy Holidays and even sang a chorus of Jingle Bells. Unfortunately I was not able to capture her unwrapping presents because she sat with me while the gift exchange occurred. We were having so much fun talking and laughing pictures were missed.
My granddaughter received many gifts but her favorite was Flutterbye Flying Fairy. It is a magical fairy that flies through the air (thanks to 6 AA batteries). Fairies are one of my granddaughter’s favorite things. I had never heard of the fairy and was amazed watching it dance through the air.
The smile watching her fly the fairy was priceless. For those of you who like me have no idea about Flutterbye Fairy here is a picture
The next gift she liked was her Leap Pad. Here is a picture of her playing with her Aunt Jen
I think there was one gift which was enjoyed by the adults as well as my granddaughter. My granddaughter has picked up my camera and tried to take pictures. I saw a creative camera from Leap Frog. You are able to place a smart phone in a camera like case (I must add a sturdy case). They are able to take pictures and also create different funny pictures. Here is one of the ones my son created
We had a wonderful dinner
