Christmas is OVER.  
Can I get a 'heck, yeah?'

I never did hit my Christmas groove; I tried on Christmas eve to scrape up the teaspoon of Yuletide cheer from WAY down deep inside to make cookies with the boys and my visiting niece and nephew, but aside from that, no Christmas baking, no mailing out Christmas cards (they're sitting across the room from me, mocking me) and I didn't send out Christmas gifts like I normally do. Apologies all around. :(

Instead, I shall do a photoessay of the Christmas thing. Click if you want to see. :)

So lyndsiefenele sent me a Gryffindor scarf, and it is AWESOME. So awesome, that my husband appropriated it for himself, the punk. He also said to tell you, Tasha, that he'd be needing mittens and a matching hat. I told him not to hold his breath. ;)

And then Aaron stole it. PUNK!

And then they decided that they could share it. I've YET to get to wear it. But I luuuuuurve it. :) Thank you!

The cookie decorators. That's Lillian and Wyatt, and then the boys.

Christmas eve at the in-laws.

Ethan got to read the Christmas story. He stumbled over 'Quirinius' and 'Syria,' but hey, who doesn't? He did a great job. He's such a good reader. /mom brag

The jerseys we got them for Christmas, looking out over the porch rail at the in-law's place on the canyon

They like football. They watch it while Nolan and I are in our room watching TV episodes on DVD.

Texas Forever, y'all.

In our household, serious coffee drinking starts early.

No, it was water, but this is the same face I make before I've had my first cup. ;)

Hope all of your holidays were merry and all that. Next up? Packing all the merriment back into boxes for next year. :D

The picture of the boys in t-shirts disturbs me for some reason. Christmas is supposed to be cold and white.

I got a Hufflepuff scarf from Lyndsie, just in time, right at Christmas Eve.

Don't feel bad, I never got the ornaments on my Christmas tree and I did very little baking.

The boys are still adorable little devils!

What a handsome bunch you've got. :D I love the traveling scarf. :))

Heck yeah!

Great pics as always :) You might have a fight on your hands to get your scarf back ;)

You're welcome. The pictures are great. : )

Tell him he can have a hat if he finds me the yellow-colored yarn. I seem to have not kept very good track of what the heck brand/color it was, and now I can't find it again. *sigh* It's harder than it needs to be to find the right golden yellow color.

Believe me, I understand. I sent no cards this year, and if my daughter hadn't wanted to bake, we probably wouldn't have had any cookies either. (She took most of them to school for her friends, anyway.)

Awesome scarf, and the jerseys are requirements for Texas citizenship, aren't they? ;-) What a lovely family you have. I hope you feel better now that the holidays are (almost) behind you.

Merry Christmas and happy packing away the merriment.

Ohmygoodness, Aaron is SUCH a cutie-pie in that scarf! :D Go Gryffindor! Aw! Ethan reading the Bible! *beams* They grow up so fast. :)
The baking chickenses are the best! ♥

Kudos to the scarf maker! :D

awww! I love it. Efrayim has his own Ravie Scarf, thanks to Tasha.


I hear you on the 'glad it's over' thing. Seriously.

I started drinking coffee at age 8. Sunday brunches only, and it was watered down decaf... it's what my parents finally agreed to let me have because I BEGGED for it.
