Saturday was another cold day so we took Dave to the Country Pancake House in Lakewood Ranch where they have the biggest portions ever! Everyone walks out with take-out containers! A quick stop at the Bargain Barn again and a surprise spotting of Santa along the road. I love the reindeer attached to the front of the car.
That evening we opened gifts with my parents and had lots of laughs over the crazy (but good!) things that they found for us.
How do you like my bee socks? :) And Dave's shirt is a t-shirt with a jacket, shirt and sweater all layered and printed on it. So funny! The tree evens add to the fun - the lights are gradually burning out so that all that's left is the top, a row around the middle, and a row at the bottom. It could be dark by New Years!
Gifts so far today ~
laughter and love and fun
the blessing of having both my parents
the beauty of the beach
the smells, the sand, the fresh air
Have a gift-filled night!
