Christmas 2010 in Pictures


I couldn't sleep, so I got up at the crack of dawn and ate some of my uncle's awesome seafood gumbo...



Then went around the corner to my family's house. I received some nice gifts, including a set of baking pans...



Paint brushes...a starving arteest can never get enough of these...



A cookbook...woohoo!



My brother gave me an awesome Garfield card (love Garfield) with a generous amount of cash enclosed. Very grateful for that as I have a doc appointment coming up...



I spent some time with the stepfamily and had some awesome food and received a nice card and some cozy gloves. Then I went on to Mississippi where my mom was waiting. Her tree is always awesomely elaborate.



She makes the best cornbread too!



I received some goodies in a stocking. Notice the Land 'O Lakes Cocoa hiding in the bag with the Hershey's. Talk about a double-whammy of win...



And Freddy surprised me with this! A custom Precious Moments figurine with Eeyore! I collect Eeyore, and collected Precious Moments once upon a time (before Hurricane Katrina) but had not received one in years. I was stunned at how perfect it was for me, and it even has my freakin' name on it!!! Sweet! Mom and Freddy also gave me some grocery money, which was very helpful...



...since my fridge currently looks like this. Yeah, it could use a good scrub...I know. I'll get to that before going to Winn Dixie tomorrow. :-) Mom and Freddy have come to my rescue this year in this extremely difficult time with my health and finances and I am so grateful.



Unfortunately, the day ended with a tremendous migraine...



...but nonetheless, I am blessed!

I hope all of my dear friends have had a wonderful Christmas with those you love.

God bless,
Kelli
