I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
Merry and bright.
Filled with wonder.
My boys on Christmas Eve celebrating my FIL's birthday
In my happy place: capturing our memories (with an ancient video camera that still uses tapes) :)
This was a fun gift to give my girls: Turbie Twists, hair accessories, and a fancy hairdryer.
No more borrowing my hairdryer, yay!
We usually do Christmas Eve with my in-laws, Christmas morning with just us, then my parents come over for brunch. We head over to their house for the rest of the day and usually have an early dinner. This year my dad (who NEVER cooks) made Christmas dinner. We were all very impressed with his chili. He even used a Rachel Ray recipe!
The best part of the day was a video phone conversation with my brother who is currently deployed. It was such a sweet time for my kids (and the grown ups) to get to "see" him. Christmas just isn't the same when a loved one is so far away.
This is what Reeses Cups for breakfast looks like:
For the first time since the 1940's our area had ...
a white Christmas!
