To document the rest of our holiday festivities:
Helped out at a party at the twins' school.
Ready for prayer at school:
Boys in front of our holiday card wall, appreciating the box of presents sent by family to open all throughout the month!
Enjoying Christmas lights with the Young Women from church.
Holiday party with some friends:
Twas the night before Christmas...
Watching out the window for Santa....
Hooray! Everyone gets what they wanted!
Like a new shopping cart to put on your head.
Even mom, who got a new apron from Anthropologie. And some sweet new sunglasses from Tiffany's. (Our annual free glasses that came conveniently at Christmas.)
I mean, who wouldn't want a big box of this for Christmas?
Why I even tried to make a bunch of yummy food for breakfast was a little silly since everyone was too excited to eat it. Except me, of course.
Oh, and this guy - breakfast being the only thing that would get him out of his new massage chair cushion. (Note to self: next time give him that after he helps the kids put all their new toys together....)
And in case you wanted a closer look at the dragon-fly studded Tiffany glasses. :)
Yay for a fun Christmas!! I was super hesitant about staying here for our first Christmas all by ourselves and not going home to be with family. But it was great. And while I'm all about a white Christmas, it was harder than I thought to complain about hanging out at the beach over the holidays. And I'm pretty good at complaining. :)
