Look who came to see us! Brother Pio!
I made a wreath out of those spray painted pinecones you may have seen on our last post. :) Paw Paw ended up going home with that one. (Pretty sure Grandma got it!)
Robby made homemade fudge and its all Mamo talked about after Robby made it. He wanted to win it in the dirty santa game. And he did! BIG smiles for sure!
Cailtin made a 3 layered CANDY cake that was the hit of the party with the kids.
That cake was in a lot of people's hands before it went home with Caleb-- lucky boy!
Robby left the game with Charlie Brown decoration...made by Uncle Jeremy.
Philip won this wreath for us made by his niece Kelsie...
and I left with a cool homemade puzzle made by Philip's dad.
There were so many other awesome gifts! We had bird feeeders made with coffee cups, Christmas decorations, Coasters, Magnetic dry erase boards, a bag full of cookies, night lights, wine bottles filled with white Christmas lights, airplanes, a chess pie and The Facts of Life shrinky dinks! I know I am leaving out some of the cool gifts! It was so much fun and we all cant wait to play it again next year!! and this year we have a whole year to come up with what we are making!!! So fun!
Grandma and Grandpa gave all the boys a remote controlled car before they left. Mamo's very first one! He was so excited that he put it under his tree in his room that night when he went to bed!!
Grandparents with all the boy grandkids. Cailtin and Hannah were MIA.
We had a great time as usual just hanging out and catching up with everyone!
We can't wait to see everyone next year!
A few days later Grandpa and Grandma came back to town! They stopped by to unload their sleigh and then they were on their way back to Kentucky! (Grandma was sick... poor Grandma, so they just made a quick stop!)
Mamo found this in the Toys R Us ad and cut it out the advertisement and handed it to us. It was quite hysterical. Out of the entire 50 page ad this is what he wanted. -- Horses, a truck pulling a horse trailer and a barn!
Hot Pink! Thanks Grandma!
The Payne family bleeds BLUE!
Grandma and Grandpa!
Grandpa just retired a few weeks ago and they are brushing up on their golfing skills- so they are both going to GolfPlus after Christmas!
Grandma and Grandpa... this was 10 minutes after you left. (The AFTER picture!) Our friend rejoined us and we play with this EVERYday. This is his favorite truck and he loves his horses and barn. He won't even share this truck with mommy when we play. Its been deemed his FAVORITE for sure!
Merry Christmas Grandpa and Grandma! Thank you for all that you do!
