A Big Chief Tablet

Another great Christmas has past. Santa brought our 9 year old grandson a tablet. When his Papa told him he used a tablet in grade school called a Big Chief, Blake asked if it was a touchscreen.

Another great Christmas morning with our two children and their family. I love those grandbabies. 

Another great Christmas dinner at the in-laws. When I noticed this sweet vintage Pyrex casserole dish there, my mother in law said I could have it. Not a Christmas present per se but a nice gift nonetheless.

And an equally great day doing nothing today but watching old movies with hubby. As there is a cold rain here out, I hope to stay inside and watch some of the old fifties movies our kids got us. I may even let hubby watch the old westerns while I nap. Life is good.

Oh yeah, my same as sister cousin welcomed her first grandchild yesterday morning. Ella Gail - what a special gift.


  1. Oh, how precious - a Christmas baby!

    Love the Pyrex dish. Brings back memories for me of my mom's potato salad!

    Enjoy your day and Happy New Year!

  2. Congrats to Ella Gail's wonderful debut. So great the old-time movies & TV comedy. IF you haven't seen the movie WAR HORSE, go. Fabulous.

    TTFN ~
    Happy New Year!

  3. Glad you've been enjoying the grandkids!!! Merry Christmas!!! XO!

  4. So glad you had a nice and relaxing Christmas! I hope your New Year is just as peaceful.

  5. Sounds like a perfect day. I'm a pyrex collector myself. Love the pink!

  6. Sounds like a wonderful Chrismas!!
    Cute remarks by your grand. Technology sure has come a long way :)

    Have a great week!!

  7. Times sure have changed! What a lovely impromptu gift the pyrex bowl was! It sounds like you had a great Christmas with your kids and grands! And how exciting to have a new tiny baby cousin!

  8. Congratulations to your cousin/sister on her first grandchild, an amazing & wondrous blessing.

    Your day sounds much like the relaxing days after Christmas my husband & I enjoy. I think the days after Christmas are the most relaxing days of the entire year for us. I hope your coming new year is full of more wondrously sweet blessings for you and yours.

  9. I had a good, hearty laugh over that tablet comment! :-) Too cute! Children these days just don't understand...

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm trying to get caught up! :-) Hope you had a wonderful, blessed Christmas!
