Festive Fragging

Here I am again, apologizing for dropping off of the face of the blogosphere!
I'm fine, we're all fine. Just busy, busy, busy! I'm glad it's Friday and Fragging time - just what I needed.

On Monday, my Shelbie girl turned 16 years old. I am still a little bit in disbelief over that! She spent time with her dad & family on his side during the day, and with us that evening. I think she had a great birthday.

On Thursday, we had dinner with my whole family. My kids, my parents, my sister and her family, my brother and his family. This is a rare and fun thing! Afterwards we all went to my parents' house to celebrate the December birthdays and of course, Christmas. The December birthdays in my family: my sister-in-law, Shelbie, my sister, my mother, AND my nephew.

Today after work I get to finish Christmas shopping. Shelbie has agreed to wrap all gifts except for her own - I HATE wrapping! I dread it every year. So I'm happy to have that task delegated.

The weekend will be filled with more of the same stuff - time with friends & family, Christmas-light-looking, shopping, and fun.

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday!!
Go visit Mrs 4444 for some Festive Fragments.

I really like wrapping gifts, but I hardly have any gifts to wrap anymore.

Merry Christmas!!

Happy 16th to Shelbie! Sounds like you have been busy. Have a very Merry Christmas. I finally finished my wrapping today, did some baking and will be baking all day tomorrow.

Since I'm a teacher and known for being "green," I get a lot of gifts in gift bags. The problem, we don't exchange gifts in our family.

The few I do, I have to wrap to mail--and I do love that (even though I know--gulp--the wrap won't get recycled...)

Very festive week, keep spreading the joy!

This is my first time here - stopping by from Friday Fragments :)

Happy Birthday to your daughter - you two do look like sisters.

Happy Holidays ~

You both look like teenagers :)

Mr.4444 got Kendall to help him wrap this year. I loved that she said, "Let's do it together, Dad." It was a nice compromise.

I assume you had a wonderful holiday, so Happy New Year! :)
