Christmas Wrap Up

I realized that I have never posted anything yet about our Christmas! Oh boy, am I ever behind. It is about to get a whole lot quieter on this blog, as we are getting ready to make our annual pilgrimage to sunny Florida. This involves packing for five people....for two months. No small feat for sure! What to bring, what to bring....

Anyway, our Christmas festivities actually started on Friday, as we went out for a family drive to look at Christmas lights. Hubs took us to what we call the "Christmas House". This is a couple's house, that they TOTALLY decorate, inside and out, with Christmas decorations and lights.

Here are the girls next to their life size Santa.

Here is my middle the middle of their house.

This ice cube snowman would look awesome in my snowman collection!

Here is their Christmas village. Very impressive!

The leg lamp from "A Christmas Story".

On Saturday, we went to our church's "Carols and Candles" Christmas Eve service. Then, we had our family over for a party afterwards.

Unfortunately, I guess we didn't take any pictures of that. But, here is a picture right before the girls came out on Christmas morning.

There aren't any pictures of the girls opening presents on Christmas morning, because now that they are older, they don't want pictures of what they look like first thing in the morning on the internet. Can't say I blame them. As you can see, there aren't any of ME on here either. Ha!

In the afternoon, we went to my sister and brother-in-law's house for dinner, and more present opening!

Santa brought me a brand new Crock Pot, so if you have any recipes that you love to make in the Crock Pot, please feel free to share them with me!

New pajamas! I am easy to please :)

We bought my parents a new vacuum, but little did we know, they had already bought one for themselves BEFORE Christmas! They thought it was pretty funny.

Now that I finally downloaded all the pictures, I can show you a picture of Chocolate Dream Delight. YUM!

We ended the evening with the kids playing their new "Just Dance 3" game on the Wii.

And a great time was had by all....
