our christmas

Christmas Eve...






My mom did a little drawing for all the kids...
with little consumable gifts, just for fun.
You should have seen Eli's face
as he stood there holding a cake mix, his very first Christmas gift.
It was hilarious.



It was the most lovely evening.


Christmas morning...

Brenden's stocking was filled with lots of practical things...
including a spatula.
He was pretty stoked.
Who wouldn't be?

The kids had a blast.
Lots of fun things were unwrapped.





Brenden bought his father some cigars.
Of course he did.



One really great moment was when Macy opened up a pair of jeans...



And, "What's that??"....a new cell phone just happened to be ringing in the back pocket.
She was pretty excited, as you can see.


Christmas afternoon...







It was a very special day.




But let's back up a bit.


My big boys did something pretty "special".
I should have seen this coming, honestly.

Last year my dear husband bought me this fabulous frame...

Look how completely excited I was.
I loved it.
I love it.

But it sat in my living room.
And sat.
And sat and sat and sat.
Photo-free.

Several comments were made throughout the year
about my beautiful picture frame, sans any pictures.
I got harassed for moving it out of the way,
and even dusting it occasionally.



So, they thought they'd give it another shot.




Look how stoked I am, all over again!!

It was pretty funny.
We'll see what strides I make with it this year.





*****

It was such a fabulous Christmas.
But I have one thing left to share with you...later.
Stay tuned to see THE MOST amazing gift my husband has ever given me.
Oh my. It is
big.

You won't believe it.

Is it just me or does Isaiah look just like K-man? I see it all the time in the photos.

Glad you had a great Christmas! Looking forward to learning of your big news. Fun!

You are not going to believe this!!! But I wrapped my hubby's Father's Day gift that he has not even opened (A GPS) since June! We cracked up laughing.

Also I have a huge cross frame that I got for Mother's Day from my son's and have yet to fill with photos and they keep asking when I am going to fill it! It is my project for the end of this week!

Let's hold one another accountable!

Lori~I love reading your blog; my daughter who is in the process of adopting, told me about it. Wanted to know where you purchased your owl pajamas that you "modeled" on Christmas morning? They are too cute.
