Christmas eve afternoon I did manage to put up a few lights outside (new for 2013). The weather held up and the house looked a bit merrier and bright.
Christmas day we ate dinner after Mike made it home (on time - YEAH!). We then exchanged Christmas stockings - we tried to get practical small items for each other. Mom did get me a few gifts - I asked for obedience, agility, and tracking equipment for Spice. My family opted to order from only one vendor so it ended up be only obedience equipment - all of the items will get used.
|Our Christmas presents - Mike and I got new phones so we only exchanged stockings|
|Animated star outdoor lights - bought when the clearance rack at Louisiana Nursery went on sale|
|New for 2013 we now have matching lighted wreaths hanging on the front doors.|
