The Christmas Blur

Ah, Christmas. Seems like we wait all year and all of a sudden, it’s done in a flash. Let’s recap the very busy twenty-four hours…

Christmas Eve found us preparing to church but I was missing one child. He was already at church warming up with the band. I had planned on taking a picture of the kids once we were all home, but guess who forgot?

Yep.



Stromboli dinner, spreading of reindeer food, leaving of cookies for Santa rounded out the evening. I, however, added another special something…..Benadryl.



I fully admit I am one of “those” moms. ‘Nuf said.

Christmas Day arrived but did not bring early risers. No one got up until almost 7:30. Whoo hoo! This day had lots of surprises…..I think I was more excited than the kids!

Before……



After….



In the midst of all chaos, the family gift was opened….



and a scavenger hunt held for…



The rest of the day was spent playing with new toys, hosting dinner for twelve, and serving dessert for twenty....including grandparents from Pennsylvania!

The clean up crew.....what good teens!



My babies….




But the best event of the day?

The snow! Yes, snow in Georgia on Christmas Day.



We hope your Christmas was just as wonderful!

That looks like a wonderful Christmas. Love the Pillow Pets under the tree. I have to say that I don't really get the appeal, but they have quite a great marketing campaign. Since my kids got theirs on Christmas Eve, I've heard "it's a pillow, it's a pet, it's a pillow pet" at least a million times!

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Your kids are adorable, all four of them. I love Katie's hair, that length looks great on her. I hope you all have happy 2011!
