Friday Things #451
Happy first Friday in January to you! I hope that you had a wonderfully peaceful holiday break and that the first week of January has been good to you :)
As I’ve done in years past, I’m using this Friday Things to share a glimpse into our holidays with you! Enjoy!
(it was 60 degrees!)
(The kids picked out gifts for each other and I loved that they were fast favorites; seeing them exchange gifts with each other was absolutely my favorite part of Christmas this year!)
Break (a.k.a. endless pajama days!)
(We made car and truck waffles!)
(We had a wonderful visit with my grandma.)
(The kids played bubble hockey before the sun came up.)
(So thrilled that the boys are loving Battleship – one of my favorite games as a kid!)
Judith says HAPPY JANUARY! :)
See you next week with recipes!
Hi Michelle, I loved the pic of cars and trucks waffles!! I have 3 grandsons under 4 who would love them! The reviews on Amazon are mixed. Did you have any issues using it? Did you have to spray molds before adding batter? Batter overflow?
Just wondering if its worth the investment.
Happy New Year
Hi Elizabeth! I did spray the waffle iron with Pam before using (I do that even with my regular waffle iron). I used a small scoop to add batter; you want to fill the wells about ¾ full, not totally full. The kids LOVED them and thought they were so fun. It just takes awhile to cook a full recipe’s worth of waffle batter, but I started serving them once a couple batches were done and just kept them coming haha.
Happy New Year. The children are growing so fast and are so cute. Love the dog and so enjoy each and every post. Stay safe and warm, with good wishes from deep east Texas. Boy we had a big storm last night. Rain , thunder, and lighting that linked light that had a short. Went on until about 6 am this morn. Don’t need very much of that. Anyway, thanks for all the good stuff you post.Thank you
I can’t believe how quickly your beautiful children are growing up! I’ve subscribed since before Joseph was born, and it actually seems like just the other day that Isabelle was born — and now look at them!
I enjoyed your photos, and I wish all of you a happy, healthy new year!
Thank you for sharing your family’s activities.
The happiness. The love. I’m not much for tons of words, but I agree with what the others have said. Thank you for the links, too. Wishing your year to be the best.
Adorable holiday photos! Especially liked the first one by the fireplace with the pups. I think they both had the biggest smiles!
I really enjoy you sharing your family with us, especially since I’m unable to spend with my own.
Happiest New Year wishes to your sweet family!
Hi Michelle, Love all the pictures especially the kids in their Christmas finery. The kids got some interesting gifts. A lot of hockey presents. I want to wish you and the family a Happy New Year. And healthy and safe new year.
Love your blog!! So very nice that you shared your Christmas with us! Happy New Year, Michelle & family!
Thank you for the beautiful Christmas Holiday photos!!!
The children are so very sweet and it hardly seems possible – time wise’ that baby-hood is behind them.
I love following your recipes and >> shopping info along with them.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year to ‘you and yours, and many more!!!
Michelle, Absolutely adore your Friday Things. Thank you for sharing your family with us, it’s great to watch the children interact and to follow their journeys. Happy New Year to all of you. Hope it’s safe and happy for you. Stay safe, love and hugs. Pam
Beautiful family!!! You are very lucky & blessed. I look forward to a New Year of amazing recipes.
Thanks for sharing & Happy 2022 to you & yours!
So lovely. You have a wonderful life and your kids are spectacular. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful family, thank you for sharing. I am looking forward to your blog and new recipes this year.
Smiling at the “puzzle board” as my husband made me one that I love!
Children! The best part of Christmas!🎄
They look so happy…it must have been a wonderful holiday!
Thanks for letting us have a peek into your happy memories, Michelle!!😍
Thank you for posting these, Michelle.
I enjoyed the virtual holiday with your family, and am grateful for it.
Have so enjoyed seeing your lovely children grow, and of course, the furry ones too.
Love the pictures! Can you share what puzzle that is? It looks like one my family would love.
Thank you, Natalie! Here is a link to the puzzle: https://amzn.to/3n8KNho
You have the cutest family! I must know about the boards for your knee hockey game! My boys would have destroyed them in the first 2min of playing because it has always been full contact knee hockey in our basement lol. They are 16 & 20 now and they would still play given the chance, that never goes away!
Aww thank you! I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one with boys who play rough and break things 😆 I did have to put some boards back together within the first 30 minutes! LOL Here is the link to the hockey set – it’s a half rink, they got two so they could be joined together to make a “full” rink: https://amzn.to/3HI5n07
What a beautiful family you have! Your pictures show so much love. Thank you for the good recipes throughout the year. I always look forward to your post.
Lovely family pictures! The joy on their faces just shines. That ice hockey rink is the coolest!! (No pun intended, haha) Is the board under the puzzle a puzzle board that can be ordered from somewhere? I’ve been looking for one.
Hi Liddy, Yes! My husband got it for me for Christmas :) This is the board: https://amzn.to/3nav4i0
The children are growing up so fast and are absolutely beautiful. They each have such a sparkle in their eyes and peaceful countenance. You and your husband are doing it right!
Kids, it’s what Christmas is all about. The pictures are beautiful. I always enjoy looking at them. Everyone looks likes the had so much fun. Happy New Year.
I love your Friday things posts! I really enjoy the pictures!
I absolutely love Fridays watching your family grow. One of the best parts of my week. Beautiful pictures!
