Thyme to tell you that Santa was VERY good


I hope that you all had a 
WONDERFUL
Christmas!
I think that 
Santa once again made the 
MAGIC 
happen!

Last year I had posted
HERE
what was #1 on Andrew's wish list for Christmas
A
Bass Boat!
well this is what Santa got Andrew last year

Andrew with his Bass Boat last year!


But Santa came EARLY this summer
and
bought Andrew( AND Pete) this



I took Julie shopping and she got a new coat, boots and a Coach backpack




Santa also put plane tickets for a 2 week trip to Italy this coming spring in Andrew & Julie's stockings
Pete has family in Italy that we will visit
but we will also tour Milan, Rome, Tuscany,Lake Como,
Bellagio, Cinque Terre, Siena, San Gimignano and Florence
We will also be traveling with Pete's sister and husband.
It will be our 3rd trip to BEAUTIFUL Italy!

And
last but not least
Pete and I bought what will one day be our retirement home on Cape Cod!


We pass papers in a few weeks and I cannot tell you how incredibly excited I am!


So I painted a sign for Pete!


I bought us some Cape Cod coffee mugs to enjoy early morning coffee in our  beautiful yard
I also got Pete the hat he is wearing
that says
Cape Cod........he plans on doing alot of fishing!
and
COLBY..........
well

he got a new LOBSTER toy to take to Cape Cod!!!!!!


Yup..........he is loving it!




Colby Claus and Julie's dog Max!
I am so very THANKFUL for ALL the blessings in my life.......
MY hubby, my children, my family, friends, my talents
I hope your
Christmas was filled the joy of family and friends
I wish you a Happy, healthy New Year!
Hugs,
Lynn

  3. Sounds and looks like a wonderful Christmas! My grandparents on my Mother's side originally came from Italy and I have always wanted to visit there and see where they came from. I love the new retirement home!

    Merry Christmas Lynn!

  4. Wow Lynn: Santa was very good to all of you. I've been to the Cape once and loved it. Would love to go back again someday-it's so beautiful! Did the Provincetown whale watching too, which was awesome!
