Post Christmas

 Christmas has come and gone.  Almost.  My family is here visiting and we're celebrating Christmas together.
 This is our tree from down south.   Since we put our tree up at our house here we needed something to put up for the Hartman Christmas.  Grandma Shirley saved the day.  She even decorated it for us!  
 Can you see his face?  Priceless.  I don't know know what he was crying about but it was funny.
 Opening his gift from Uncle Shawn and Nicki.  He loved the "big truck"!
 We made button ornaments.  Styrofoam balls, buttons, straight pins with the little balls on top and some ribbon.  Easy and fun!
 And then at our house.  My two big kids.
 We got Graham a balance bike.  Have you ever heard of one?  It doesn't have pedals and he will learn how to balance himself on it and then go straight to a big boy bike. No training wheels.  I'll report back and let you know how it goes!
 Christmas morning.  Grace had a plan for us.  "I will get up first and you stay in bed. Ok?  Then when I go out and see if there are presents there, I'll come and get you up. Ok?"   Got it Sis. :)
 They had so much fun with their gifts.  It was fun to watch their excitment.

It has been fun.  I have to say that I'm breathing a sigh of relief that it's over though.  Not because it's all been bad but just hard.  In fact, I will say that Shane did everything he absolutely could to make it the best ever.   And it was a good day.  I can't say it was the best ever but it was good.  I am so glad that God sent Jesus to be our Savior.  Knowing that He came to earth for me and endured so much more than I'll ever know for me is the best gift I could ever receive.

I see the drill and toolbox! Poor Grahammers...I love crying baby faces (when their mommas are nearby). Your hubby is a good man. :)
