A Very Belated Christmas Post

I think I'll just use the excuse that we didn't finish Christmas until this past Saturday. That's right. This has been the longest Christmas celebration ever! We do have our reasons. Corwin came down with a nasty cold and fever Christmas Eve, so we did not go to York as planned. Our trip was delayed until Grandmama's birthday (Wally's mom) this past week. SO, we just finished our final gift exchanges. Now, should I put almost a month's worth of pictures all in one post? Hmmmm.

These Christmas ornaments came out really well. They are made from cone-shaped cardstock, cloth, glitter, and sequins.

We, of course, did our yearly Christmas nativity. I was the angel...YESSS, finally! I remember when I was little always wanting to be the angel in the school production, but I think I was usually a shepherd. We used Handel's Messiah (Glory to God) and a flashligh, aka the glory of the Lord, for my debut appearance.

Thank you BeBe! We love advent calendars!

Hanging the stockings.

Christmas morning...ah yeah...puffs.

Happy birthday, Jesus!

What's in there?

Ah, yes, an environmentally friendly vehicle. Just what I wanted.

A Fwashwight! Yay! Alden has actually been working on saying his L's. It's making me a little sad because he's getting it. Instead of hearing, "I wuv you mommy.", I am now hearing, "I love you mommy." Truthfully, I am relieved that we won't be hiring a speech therapist, but it's sad too.

Christmas hugs.

We caved. She got dance lessons for Christmas. One unexpected positive benefit from ballet lessons is the desire to listen to only "classical" music. So, at the very least, they are instilling a love for good music.

A train table. Everyone loves this, even daddy, although he might not admit it, I think it gives him some satisfaction to redesign it every couple of days.

Carpooling even further decreases our carbon footprint.

I think I'll end my Christmas post here. We love staying at home and celebrating as a family. They also were able to attend church, without me, sniff sniff, (I had been really looking forward to celebrating with everyone else at church).


  1. Haha! Wally sounds like me with our girls new dollhouse. I'm constantly rearranging the furniture in the house.

  2. So where's the picture of Eowyn, the angel?
