Simple Christmas beauty!
Love when my daughter brings home a large Poinsettia from work each year. It is gorgeous.

Sweet little Christmas baby. Such a little doll.

Hauling in the tree from off of our property!

HA! Loving that face.
No matter how old you are, Christmas is still full of surprise, delight, love and warmth.

Such a good time for our family...oh, with a special phone call from our daughter who is serving a mission for our church. So great!

We "still" have only had one good snowstorm this winter season. Just enough snow for tractor sledding.

Good times!
Sorry for the blurrrrrr! But, loved the chance to play tennis a few times.

Jenna held her own against the boys!

And....there had to be time for PIE! Made a graham cracker crust. Can't see it in this picture, but, the sugar sparkled in this crust. It baked up so nicely...very pretty!

Yummy first layer. 4 ounces cream cheese, 1 T sugar, 1 T milk. Mix with a wire whisk until smooth. Then, add in 1 and 1/2 cup of cool whip. Pour and spread onto crust.
Next, mix together 1 cup milk, 1 can 16 ounces canned pumpkin, 2 boxes (4 serving size) of instant vanilla pudding and pie filling, 1 t ground cinnamon, 1/2 t ground ginger, and 1/4 t ground cloves ( or I use 2 t of pumpkin spice).

Put in fridge for a good 4 hours before serving....if you can wait that long-ha! Doesn't always happen that way at our house. So delicious.
More holiday happenings and fun to come. Was such a nice 2 weeks for us all!
Happy 2011 to us all!
