Hope that you all had a delightful Christmas – full of family, fun, and food. (All things in moderation, of course)
We spent Christmas eve with youngest daughter and family. She is recovering from shoulder surgery and her adopted teen daughter made pizza for everyone – yummo! Thanks, Ms. F.
Hubbymoose had to work from 11 p.m. Christmas Eve until 10 a.m. Christmas Day, so he and I left the festivities a bit earlier than others so he could get in a few more hours of zzzzzs before heading in.
As you can imagine, he was beat when he got home Christmas mornings. After breakfast he headed off to bed while I puttered around quietly readying the evening meal for older daughter and her brood.
Presents were exchanged – and much love was put into the items given. We are blessed beyond words with our loved ones.
The highlight of Christmas each year is the requisite “Amazing Shrinking Gramma” pictures. All but the very youngest are not taller than I – or very close to being taller than I. Next year? I think all but the two youngest will be “towering” above me. Enjoy:

first of all – scuse the hat hair. I live in Alaska, you know.
Left to right in the first picture: D-Bug, me, TAT, with K-Bug and Bugget in front of us. Now, D-Bug LOOKS like he is taller than I am here – but he still has about 1/2 an inch – and, yes, I WILL take that half, thank you very much.
In the second picture – that humongo person next to me? My first-born grand”baby” boy, McDonster! And, yes, he IS that much taller than I. On the other side are his sisters, the Pup and Riah. Yes, Riah is taller also – with the Pup closely behind.
These two pictures just REALLY show how much shrinkage there is in me in Alaska’s cold. (Props if you know the show to which I am referring). McDonster palmed my head while his mama shot this one. He can hold his arm out straight and I just about fit under it – sigh.
Then he asked me to fake swing at him – that’s a swing and a miss, Gramma. LOL Funny man that one, funny man.
