Christmas was wonderful. Third Christmas being married to Husband and we almost got the ‘family time’ down to an art. My little brother’s early wake up call is surprisingly a big help when it comes to starting our Christmas morning routine. 6:30 AM and not a minute later. It usually only takes a total of 15 minutes for the little men to tear into their gifts from Santa. The older kids like to stretch it out a bit more….but only a bit. By 7:30AM we were off to the in-laws. Santa gifts before church, family gifts after. Church has never taken so long….however, it helps when your cute mother sings O Holy Night beautifully for the whole congregation all by her little self. She’s a rockstar.
Wednesday before the big holiday started with a desk full of holiday cheer!
My little grandma held her annual party on Christmas Eve Eve. She tries to get us to sing. We try to do our best. Some more than others.
Mister Santa, ladies and gents.
Sister-In-Law #2 found this awesome retro microphone under the tree. I think Husband quite enjoyed it.
After a few nights away we decided to check on Mister Waldorf & Statler. The house was still in one piece. Except for some unfortunate tissue paper that seemed to find itself on the wrong side of the kitty war.
Vernal or bust. Time to visit the grandfolks before our Christmas dream comes to an end.
Oh and of course, one of the highlights was seeing miss Baby.
and mister Duke.
Cousin Big taking care of cousin Little. He is not a baby. Just ask him.
This cat has some emotional eating problems. We all do.
The best Arby’s. Literally. They win like every Arby award. Yes, Arby has awards; you would not even know it unless you stopped in.
A very short trip. A very long drive. Two very cute backseat hitchhikers.
Oh and here is a little Christmas card I made for the in-laws. I stink at Monopoly.
xoxo Happy Christmas
