Christmas Day 2016

On Christmas day, happy kids came over in their P.J.'s! Here are some of the slippers they wore.



The two little ones were dressed alike.

But they soon turned into princesses!


I found this bear at Goodwill. He wears red boots and sings "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" Jazz sat down with him and had a quiet talk and a hug.


She also hugged her new Lambie blanket & pillow.

Meanwhile, the older ones were practicing yo yo tricks.

Yes, Anne Marie was here too! My next post will be about her enormous gift!

Little Jazz had some fun on Grandpa's lap.

After the games and food, as the day got later, it was time for silliness.


After such a big day, it was time to go home and to bed.

I love the slippers they're adorable and the transformation from PJ's to princess is precious. Now I can't wait to find out what the enormous gift is Anne Marie got for Christmas. I love all the pictures and see the joy and the fun and I know that the big kids had as much fun as a little kids. I laughed out loud over the big kids playing with yo-yos the really big kids haha

Coming to Christmas in PJ's and slippers is a good way to start a day to be filled with love. And I did love the slipper show along with the cuddles and pretty smiles that radiate joy. Thanks for sharing.
