Laurel Lane Christmas 2013

 Merry Christmas!
The tree is loaded this year - with ornaments from our stash + Nana's

 Nana's fun Christmas collections

 New to the decorations this year - 

And a beautiful quilt made from Granddad's shirts.
What a treasure. Thank you, Polly!
It was fun to have Dad be a part of the day.

Christmas day
We went for a beautiful afternoon walk along the Willamette River Esplanade in Portland.

 Mom and I waved to the Amtrak passengers.
Some of them waved back.
One guy blew a kiss. :)

 Christmas Eve - time with the Palshikar grandchildren
Nana and Sarah

 Sarah with her new "pet rat." 
This one won't die in a few months.

 Kat hugging a new "pet rat" with Josh

 Sarah and Kat with the stuffed pink unicorn…I couldn't resist!
Sometimes a grandma's gotta do what a grandma's gotta do.
They promised they'd share.

 Week before Christmas - Hunter brought his mom and dad over for dinner.

Nana setting up a nativity scene.
She had so much fun decorating this year!

We loved skyping and texting and talking with dear family today. 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

So glad the quilts were all enjoyed. The backing seems all the more appropriate after seeing how you chose to spend the afternoon.
