The Girl Wears a Hanger

The Girl Wears a Hanger
Christmas Eve at Grandma & Pop's

Taylor plopped on her new hat, hanger and all.
I had to make a comment-
I saw it in the window and I just couldn't resist it!
 in reference to the classic Carol Burnett parody of 
Gone With the Wind.

We celebrated Christmas Eve at our place, 
gathering to open presents before
everyone made their secondary trips
on Christmas Day.

The Girl with the Secret
Her first diary- and a set of keys to guard it.
 Judging by her expression, there must be a lot to tell!

The Girl in the Mirror
Santa didn't forget to leave a few items for the make up table.
It's still in the basement awaiting a couple of strong guys
to carry it up a couple of flights.
Taylor didn't waste any time checking it out though.

Barbie and Friends
Great Grandma Ann gave Barbies

Girls Got Game
Pops and Grandma Kathy, along with Santa,
supplied the pink pool cue.

Becky's favorite birds- owls.
So I made her some pillows.
The front is pieced with owls in the middle,
the back is a full piece of the owl fabric.

Fashion Bugs
Daughter, Becky, and her new scarf from Nana Ann.
Becky gave Nana Ann a scarf.
I gave both of them scarves with jewelry pieces that
can be moved from scarf to scarf!
How funny.

The Reader
Pops is loaded down with books!

Sad Good Byes
Brother in Law, Dan, and wife, Gina.
Setting sail for Florida soon-
They are moving onto a boat,
a very, very big boat! 

Papa Brings Barbies
More Barbies for Taylor!

Christmas Eve
We had lots to eat,
drinks to drink,
pool to shoot,
and some great music.

It was on to church Christmas Day.

Hoping your holiday was wonderful.



Thank you for sharing your Christmas with us. I really enjoyed it and seeing your family.

Thanks everyone- looks like Mom will be here for awhile due to Arkansas storms. She has no power back home and everything is iced up or snowy. They have about 1 plow in town!

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Thank you- we're doing well but poor Mom is stuck here for a bit. I hope your holiday was wonderful too.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

She sure did. She loves the pool cue. She's staying with us as much as possible while my mom is here. Tonight they made cupcakes together and decorated them.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

You too! Nice knife.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Oh yes, everyone but my son was able to come over although Mom can't get back home yet (Arkansas).

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

She's a funny kid too. She's actually so worn out that she volunteered to go to bed early!

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

I saw a couple of patterns on line too. I may make a couple. Mom's birthday is in January.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

You too, Merry Christmas. Stay safe- stay warm!
