Christmas Recap

I really wish I could share photos from the Christmas Eve service from church Saturday night. The girl and I watched Christmas Hallmark movies from our DVR all day. Then, we got all dolled up and headed to church!

It was one of those candlelight services, and they read Mary & Joseph's story, and we sang carols between the verses.

It was beautiful.

It was magical.

And everything Christmas was about.

This was when I crept out Christmas morning. The red stuff's from Santa. The stockings were all stuffed and sitting on the couch. Santa is good...

If you don't think this is one of the cutest things in the world, then I don't know what to say. The note between the carrots, says "For Reindeer"

Hectic Christmas morning. Look at the mess!

Ignore the shirtless boy.
My Christmas gift to the fireman. A nice Perry Ellis coat and scarf. He loved it when we looked at it, but didn't want to spend the money.

I teased him about it for weeks afterwards. Man, you really should have gotten that coat.


Why do I look so tall? Well, I am. But I should have stood next to the tree, not in the foreground. Makes me look like the Jolly Green Giant.


Tonight, my folks are coming down for afternoon fun and supper. We're doing our Christmas exchange with them tonight as well. 

Oh, and the fireman is making chopped pork tonight! Oh, baby!

Love the Christmas carnage. LOL Awesome.

Also, don't be alarmed but...I have that same set of glasses! (see the milk in the milk and cookies photo.) hehehe

JenMarie said...

hehe Yes, there is a mess of papers and wrappers. But that part's the best. :)

Awesome on the glasses! I like them, cause they are simple and pretty. BUT I do prefer drinking glasses to be eclectic, that way no one gets confused as to who's glass is who's.
