Christams Rocks!

I have never been so unprepared for Christmas as I was this year. Okay, so we are buying a house. Like that should make a difference. The week of Christmas involved a lot running around, signing papers, making copies, writing checks, scrambling and juggling the money and bills. So who had time for anything Christmas??? I spent the 23rd and the 24th wrapping and finishing up last minute shopping. I felt harried at times. But the thing is, Christmas comes just the same. Remember how the Grinch tried to steal Christmas? And it somehow or other it came just the same.

I didn't get a picture on Christmas morning, but I did take one on Christmas Eve before Santa's visit. The kids had specific instructions not to wake us before 6:30 and not to wake their brother. I did say that if he was awake that would be ok. Well, according them he was up at 5:18. They did their best to keep it to 630. Next year we may have to push it back.

Most of Christmas is on video. And I am far too lazy to upload all that and edit and so on. So instead I will bore grace you with some photos.

Congrats on the home purchase. I would say that was enough of a Christmas gift = )

The tree is up and decorated with all the presents underneath. The cookies were baked. The kids look happy with their things. Sounds like a great Christmas to me. You had your hands full with just more than Christmas!

Yeah! So happy that Christmas was good for you. It has been a very busy/crazy time for you.

I am so bad about doing much of anything with my videos anymore... still take them but never do anything with them.
