What a wonderful Christmas!

We had an amazing Christmas. Santa outdid himself, that's for sure. NR received the toys he had most wanted, so he was pleased as punch. I finished my homemade gifts (well, with one notable exception) and the recipients really liked them. We spent the day in matching pjs that my dear Sis had sewn for us all; eating some great roast beast (ham, actually) and savoring some of Mom's out-of-this-world potatoes au gratin.

The gifts we received were wonderful, especially the oil painting of the black swan my mother made for me and the gorgeous quilt from Sis, but more importantly - so much more importantly - we had a fun time together. We even had a Christmas miracle here in Seattle; it snowed on Christmas. Yes, for a few brief minutes, we had a white Christmas.

So, I'm gushing about this Christmas. I'm positively giddy, like the Grinch after his heart grew two sizes. What can I say? It really was a wonderful day. Did I mention my fantabulous new sewing machine? /kiss to my hubby.

Oh, here are a few bragging photos of my handmade creations, just to top off the gushiness of this post. I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had just as wonderful a day, and for those who don't partake, I hope your Tuesday was equally as magical:
