We've been having a very merry holiday around here, especially since my husband has through New Year's off. We've been lazing around quite a bit. Christmas Eve was spent around the tree, doing our annual Luke 2, honoring the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We always let the kids open jammies before hand and have a little treat. We attempted a puzzle later, but after opening it up, got rather frightened at the tiny 1000 pieces! We love a big puzzle at this time of year, but this was a little too much for us. And we watched Little House on the Prairie: Christmas at Plum Creek....we love it.
Christmas morning we held the kids off until 7! They sat downstairs for a few hours waiting...I think they watched Star Wars or something. Our highlight gift was the Beatles Rock Band for the Wii. The kids had so much fun playing it over at my parents house at Thanksgiving, we knew it would be a hit...even Austin will occasionally sing to "Here Comes the Sun". It's too cute. Here's Taylor, my 2nd oldest, cheering for himself after singing! (I think my tree is crooked, and I know it's looking sort of disheveled after a few weeks of baby pulling ribbon and boys hiding guys inside.)
We enjoyed a Christmas Day Dinner with my brother, his wife and 2 adorable little ones. It's wonderful that my Austin has such a fun cousin to play with, they get along perfectly. And little Sienna adores her Uncle Pete! :) I think we have too much fun chatting with Jeff and Julie to remember to pull out the camera! Julie never disappoints with her food and treat contributions and we so enjoy their company! :)
The pink border and polka dots are not coming out the right pink on Etsy, which is irritating. It really does all match to her pink dress.
And here are a couple new mushroom notecards:
Pete was thrilled to see me add "another color" into my red, pink and aqua obsession. :) And I do like it here.
But we all know that red and aqua never fails! I love it! :)
For now, my house is a disaster, and I have family coming for New Year's Eve....I think I better get my behind in gear! Hopefully our company likes the Beatles!!!!!!!!!!! :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
