Ho Ho Ho. (Post #200!)

Our Christmas flew by.  J worked both Christmas Eve & Christmas day this year.  It worked out fine & we just carried-on with family, without him.  We then had our family's "Christmas morning" at 11:15am when he walked in the door December 26th.   

If it wasn't for this late celebration, I have a feeling my Christmas decorations would have been put away December 25th by midnight.  (Is this terrible to say out loud?)  I have no idea why I felt this way this year...  However, as soon as the festivities were celebrated I was scurrying around the house packing-up & clearing the clutter.

(they call them "love-handles" for a reason...)

The last decoration to come off the tree was our precious L angel.  The house is now in order & I can breathe again.

We had a sweet date with our daughter.  (I'm pretty sure J was the only male in the audience, what a trooper.)  :)  L loved it so much & cried when we had to leave.  

Sticky stickers.

Look who's been flirting with the cashier at TJ's & was given extra stickers...

This year we met up with a few MOPS moms & their little ones at Swanson's to see the reindeer, camel & donkey.  Curly, the camel was our fav this year.
