Merry Christmas 2011


Phew!
Christmas came and went way too fast,
but I have to say,
it was a WONDERFUL Christmas!

It was A LOT of work to get gifts together for
nine people, plus extended family and people who aren't here
who needed packages shipped,
but we did it!


Christmas Eve, getting ready for church.






The kids opened their new pajama pants
& played Uno (thanks Grandma!),
then we had cocoa, ate snacks and 
sat around a fire in the backyard.

THEN...
Santa came!

Cookies!


Christmas cookie time!
Paul's daughter Paige is in town for the holidays,
so us girls made cookies the other night.
(Maddie didn't want to help... bah humbug!)




The next day while I was at work,
Paul & the kids frosted them & made them look yummy.

Peppermint Stick Cocoa


We decided to make gifts-in-a-jar for some of the people we know for Christmas.
We settled on Peppermint Cocoa.

I think it turned out great!
I can't wait to taste the jar we kept for ourselves on Christmas Eve!




I couldn't get me camera to focus on this tag for ANYTHING!
Oh well, you get the idea.

 Is Sebastian rubbing his eye or picking his nose?
Who knows.

Digging for gold

We went out to the dry river bank today to get dirt
to pan for gold.
Dig Maddie Dig! :)

Deck the halls 2011


We put up the Christmas tree today,
and it looks great!

We had to rearrange the living room to make it happen though.
Last year, I put it up front and then never got to enjoy it because I'm never up there.

So, even though it makes the family room look more "cozy",
it all worked out well.
And the kids loved their ornaments that my mom made them
(the Russian dolls & snowmen).

Merry Christmas!













(I know there's still junk on the table!  oops!)

Craft project


The lights on the last garland I  made bit the dust last year,
so we needed to make a new one!







The finished product turned out really pretty!!!
Now to get the rest of the Christmas decorations up and we'll be all set!
