Christmas has come and gone.  We have survived the whirlwind of decorating, baking choosing the "perfect" gifts, making some and then off to visit family.  
You see, I am the gypsy of the family.  

When I married 39 years ago I moved 5 hours away we have lived in 8 states and Germany twice.

OK... I know there is some pink in here! OH yes, my new pink winter background!  Next week I will get back to posting real pinks.

Our Christmas trek started at our son's in Bloomington.  His girlfriend and his daughter cooked a wonderful meal and we enjoyed him playing a few songs for us after opening gifts.  

We then took our granddaughter with us on a long but fun trip for all.  We started celebrating in Kansas City where my sisters still live. 
Lots of food

Is she not the cutest little one?  My great niece in her PINK hat!

Making the gingerbread house which collapsed (we decided that it was only fitting, we were in Kansas home of OZ and Dorothy.

to the left is my sister with one of her grandsons.

 We laughed so hard with this was holding Kathy's wig and poncho and we asked if she had melted...

After watching the movie the grinch it was only fitting we had shirts to remember it by.  The one in red is Ann of tin and sparkle
Lots of fun and visiting with nieces, nephews and great nieces
 along with my mom and sisters and their husbands.

Then driving farther into Kansas to visit my in-laws and hubbies side of the family.  
Christmas day was my Mother in laws 80th birthday.

After Christmas  in Pratt, we loaded the car with two more than we arrived.
 Bob's parents went with us to Texas to visit our daughter, son in law and our other 4 grandchildren.

Nothing like making others sit through your family vacation and photos 
but maybe you get just a sense of how wonderfully blessed I am.

I pray you were able to have a great holiday and that this year finds you truly BLESSED. Debbie

Linking up with Pink Saturday, make sure you leave a comment so I know you came by and I will return the visit.

What a wonderful time you all had. I had to search for your post because Dec 3 showed when I clicked on Bev's linky. I went to your archives and clicked January and it came up. Just thought I'd let you know.

So many wonderful people and I love that you kept picking up people as you went a long! :) Your granddaughter has the coolest hair ever- it seems to suit her and she's so pretty! and I love the photo of the melted person! *giggles* really wonderful. Happy New Year
