They brought gifts for those that had been nice. The rest of us must have been naughty as we didn't get any. Two of my daughters got to sit on Santa's lap and get their gifts.
Then my daughter, Norma and her boyfriend were asked to sit by Santa. Norma opened her gift of chocolates.
Then Randy opened his. Inside was another box and he said, "oh, this one is for Norma"
Then he opened the box, got down on one knee, held out a diamond, and asked her to marry him. We were all so surprised, looking at each other and saying "is this for real"? Yes it was for real and no one knew about it except Randy, Santa and his helpers. I didn't even get a picture of him as he was proposing. Santa brought champagne and we all toasted the happy couple.
Here is the happy couple with Santa and his helpers.
After all that excitement we went back to opening the White Elephant gifts. In addition to that, I got some wonderful gifts from those amazing daughters of mine. They gave me a new pair of PJ's, a gift certificate to a bed and breakfast, subscription to Lake Superior Magazine, and a gift certificate at Amazon. I am going to use that to buy the book, "Are We Walking to Alaska" a true story written by my blog friend, JoAnn, at Scene Through My Eyes
I also spent Sunday and Monday with my friend, Eugene, and his family at the farm for their Christmas. What a fun time that was and lots of good food! My gift there was a gift certificate to the nursery for plants and flowers next summer.
I hope you all had as an amazing Christmas as I did with a few surprises too.
This will be my last post until 2014.
Wishing you all the best for the rest of this year and a Blessed 2014!
Until next time, thanks for visiting!
