Fun At Christmas!
(..and no, we didnt make these, but it looked festive & fun so...)
What fun it is to decorate a tree as a child! :-)
Baking Christmas tree cookies & blue of course, as it's his favorite color!
Sunday night, after getting some much needed rest from our Red Eye flight, we decided to dive in on all the packages that we had sent home to wrap! Why not have a little fun while doing so?! :-)
Prior to opening gifts, we had what was to be our Christmas dinner! Ashley suggested and made Ribs, Sweet potato Casserole, Green bean Casserole, tossed salad etc. with mom's help! We had a ton of other party snack foods too! We went to open gifts with full bellies ;-)
One of those bitter holiday moments we had to deal with this year..
"No longer in my life, but forever in my heart."
Matty had to show us his Motorized fire truck he got for Christmas! The excitement in his voice as he would talk about it, along with the water hose that had been removed for the time being. :-) He was bombing around the property like nothing... What a kid!
...and then the battery died in the back of Nana & Pop pop's yard! Daddy had to help push him in for a charge! He still acted like he was driving..
Nana & Pop Pop bought him a bike with training wheels.. He struggled a bit trying to ride it and not use to the brakes! He thought the pedals should go backwards and forwards without any problems! Of course he then had to pose with Pop Pop's "glasses" with facial attachments! I think he looks quite cute, if I say so myself! Love this boy!
The day before we left, Mom treated us all to Tops Diner! We started passing around the cell phones for snap shots, but as you can see.. I don't have everyone yet!

It was delicious & had an enjoyable time together!
Saturday morning, prior to heading to the airport, we had Sausage gravy and biscuits over at Ashley's with fruit! Thanks so much, Ash!
It was sad that our time was coming to an end for our NY trip, but it was a good time!
I just had hoped I was feeling better throughout it all!
Part III to be continued..
I need more of the shots that were taken in Massena for the next post...
Let's see what I can get my hands on.. ;-)
