Christmas Tidbits

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their families!!  It’s amazing how we prepare for weeks (or even months) and then suddenly the day has come and gone.  Hopefully the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ, stays with us a lot longer!

Here are a few highlights of our Christmas week.   The girls and I spent most of the early mornings last week baking cookies and making candies.   By December 24th we were in full “Elf” mode as we delivered goodies to friends, family and a few strangers.   To see more photos, check out my post at S.A.H.M. I Am!

Our traditional Christmas breakfast, eggnog French toast with warm cherry pie filling on top.  Yummie!

We have all had a blast playing with the themed Legos.  They make little log cabins.

Lindsey was thrilled to get her blue guitar (the fact that it had Cinderella on it was an added bonus).

Um, yeah, that’s Olivia in her absolute FAVORITE gift.  Her raccoon hat, a-la Davey Crockett.   I know she’ll be wearing this out in public, and I’ll just have to act like I’m ok with that.

It was a great Christmas!  We had yet another life altering experience take place during the festivities.  That however is a whole post in and of itself.
