Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hope it's a good one! We opened presents,  went out to eat breakfast at IHOP and then saw Yogi Bear in the theater. Nothing else to do today.
Here are some pictures of Avery this morning.
All ready for Christmas Morning.
 Reaction to the presents!

 Avery and daddy!
 Santa spoiled this little girl!
I got Jon a sweater, bracelet and a desk organizer (review soon)
He got me a Jane Seymour key necklace from Kay
the Charmed Memories collection bracelet with 9 charms and 2 stoppers and a love's embrace necklace.
I'm spoiled too!!!
Overall it was a decent day. I got a phone call from my grandma today, but nobody else has called. It sucks having no family.

Hope all of your day is going great!

Without a big family, you just have to create your own traditions. It sounds like you had a great, relaxing day. and I love the jewelry you got! lucky :)

Thanks for joining Mailbox Mondays! I'm already a confirmed email subscriber.

You can make some wonderful family traditions of your own. I have a huge family- but this was the 2nd Christmas without my mom- and wonderful as it was with my 3 kiddos and husband- I have a constant ache missing my mom. Holidays can be so wonderful and so tough all at once.

Happy Holidays

Oh I feel your pain sister. I have a huge family but they are all in Michigan and I live in OK with my husbands small family that doesn't get along and don't get together. It's pretty sad. That's a big part of why we had 4 kids in hopes that we can grow the family and in hopes that we have huge get togethers when they are grown. I just feel bad for my children now. :-(
By the way love following you. I try to be as frugal as possible too and homeschool my littles.

looks like a fun holiday even without many people! Your daughter looked so excited & in the end that's what it's all about!

She got quite a few of our fave Melissa & Doug items! :) Hope she enjoys everything!

We just saw Yogi Bear on friday - my lil girls got quite a kick out of it!

Valerie, We're in MI. All of our family is here, but I don't speak to my mother. It's just my father, my grandma is in Florida. And on Jon's side it's just his dad and sister. that's why I want a lot of children as well. My brother is in IN so he's far away as well. Not much family other than that.
