Christmas At Sharon's House

Dear Dad and Mom and Blogging Friends, Here are some of the highlights from our Christmas party at Sharon's house. Red reindeer create a festive look on her side table. Sharon always has a way of making her home so delightful for all ages. We all love to come to her house. Our mom and Brittany hug while sister Kelli finishes the final preparations on her dessert.
Sharon greets her son Cameron.
My mother-in-law, Vivian got to come to the party with me. She felt right at home an enjoyed herself. This is Sharon's vintage collection of Santas in the kitchen window. This is Grayson and Hayden's go cart, which was purchased at a very low price at a garage sale. The boys have really fixed it up and have enjoyed working on it as well as riding it.
Sharon displayed the food beautifully. Sharon decorates tastefully. This basket of pretty silver and gold ornaments is in her bathroom. I never think to decorate my bathroom. Our dad, Leonard, and nephew, Samuel , enjoying Sharon's good cooking.
Here is Sharon's baby Jesus in the manger collection. Some of them are so detailed and special.
Sharon's Christmas pin collection. I can remember our mother and our school teachers wearing special pins like these for holidays. I suppose that is why I have a fondness for them. Sharon's pretty bathtub with floating candles. Our daughters Jessica and Victoria, and Sharon's son Grayson and son Mackenzie and sweet wife Brittany. Daddy and me. This is such a fun collection of vintage angels and snowmen.
close up angels Sharon has worked very hard to create her collections of cute things. Here is her snowman collection. It's so cute.
Our mother, Shirley, got a cute stuffed animal and a home-made glass cross designed by our daughter Victoria in her glass-arts class. Sharon's son Cameron is left and her son Grayson and his girlfriend Rochelle are front right. Ralph is impressed with the cross Victoria made.
Sharon and Eric get a kick out of Mackenzie's goofy gift. Eric looks delighted with his present. Our daughter Jessica got a fishy chocolate.
Sharon's bedroom is elegant. I love the way she decorates.
Our son, Harrison, brought his girlfriend Nikki to our party. We are so glad she could come.
Our daughter, Victoria, gives her Grammie a hug. Our son Garrett enjoys his meal.
This pretty table tree is situated in Sharon's entry. I'm so thankful for my dear family and the times we can be together to celebrate Jesus' birth and to fellowship together. My husband was on that business trip during our party, but he can see the photos. I hope each and every one of you will be with those you love this Christmas season. Love, Kathi
"An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Luke 2:9-12

Those are some amazing decorations. I never thought to decorate the bathroom (maybe because I have too many little boys at the moment!)
