Better Late Than Never- Christmas pics

My pictures are backwards in timing. Haha So, the most recent is first in this post. Oh, well.
We had Christmas dinner at my aunt and uncle's house. My sisters, cousin, nephew, Nathanael, my brother and my Dad. :-)
Nathanael with his cousins.

Teddy loves my cousin, Nathan. :-)

Opening presents with Auntie...

My parents, the cute couple. ;-)

Nathanael loves the doggie from his Uncle.

More opening of presents.

We went caroling the day before Christmas Eve. It was cold, but very fun.
Hope you enjoyed the highlights of our Christmas season. :-)

~Vintage Dishes- my best ebay find so far!~

Well, we are still at my parent's home in Idaho, waiting for Ben to come back. Our house still hasn't sold, so we don't know how long it will be yet before we get to Missouri.
Meanwhile, I spend my time shopping on ebay. Just kidding. ;-) But I did find a 20 piece set of antique dishes for only $4.99! I absolutely love them. They are so delicate looking, and have just the right amount of crazing and discoloration. There are 7 dinner plates, 6 cups and saucers and 1 platter. And they are made in the USA. :-)I plan to put them to good use in our new home while we are waiting for our household goods to arrive from Australia.

This lovely bouquet of 18 roses arrived from my husband on Friday, which was a very sweet surprise, and really helped to lift my spirits. I love the color of the roses, and I like them all the better now that they are opening up more. They even smell good, which is an unusual trait in hot house roses, I find.I hope to post some Christmas photos soon (just a bit late). :-)
