A Shank Family Christmas

We're not conventional on Christmas day.  We don our new Christmas pajamas all day long because we don't plan to go anywhere.  (I didn't even consider changing when I went to shut the fans down at the mill.)  Several years ago, my husband decided that we would start having a family-only Christmas day.  We spend the day at home with our children doing only what we want.  It's the one day each year that we do only what we want as a family--no working, no worries, no stress.  There are 364 other days of the year to deal with work, expectations, and drama. 

Yesterday was great!  We slept in, opened our gifts, ate our favorite breakfast, grazed on snack foods, played games and rode 4-wheelers.

Clue #1 for the big gift search

The dog salon--bows, perfume, even for their brother's dog

Brandon's contribution--a deer bologna angel

Merry Christmas one and all!
