Before I get to our random Christmas Photos… I’ve got some BIG NEWS!!!!
You’ll never believe it….but….
I spotted Santa!!!!
He was elusive….
But I caught him by the tree!
And when I told him to strike a pose…
Santa didn’t disappoint!
Oh! He has a helper too!
My goal this Christmas was to get a good family photo, and a pic of me and the kids. Well, I got a shot of John Roey and I in front of our house on Christmas eve… and as for a pic of me and my chirrens…well…
This was the closest…
Blurry as hell but I still kinda love it
And full disclosure, this was the photo before that one:
I did get some good shots of our Christmas holiday though. We had a good visit with John. We visited our *fingers crossed* new house with my brother and Roey on Christmas eve:
After visiting the house, and going room to room daydreaming about how we’d fix it up, we went shopping for last minute gifts and later that evening went to my cousin’s annual Christmas eve “wine and cheese soiree.”
Please note the crasher and my mom’s chic outfit in the back (winner of the ugly sweater contest of ’14)
That’s sparkling cider…really.
Not too many photos from the party but we had fun with a white elephant gift game, and a competitive round of win lose or draw, followed by the best game ever. Heads Up. It’s an app where your team has to make you guess what is displayed on your phone that you’re holding up to your head… That was a really bad explanation wasn’t it? Go check it out here.
On Christmas day Roey and I went house to house and visited and he opened presents and got spoiled.
The first thing he opened was a package of matchbox cars, and he totally just wanted to stop there. He refused to open more, he just wanted to play with his cars in peace. We convinced him to open more and he got a hess truck and decided to stop and play with that for a few hours before giving in to our cajoling him to open more gifts. He really surprises me sometimes.
Then we all ended up back at grams for more present opening and food. I was a sick sneezey snotty mess all day on Christmas, and ended up drugging myself and passing out before dinner but I woke up and had a little time with all the family gathered.
A good time was had by all.
