Do You See What I See...

Dad, Ross, and Corbin playing board games. Boys only I guess... if you wanna play you have to say "Boys are fantastic, girls are elastic" three times... I'm not too sure being elastic is the insult of the century, but this game is based on a book written in the 30's.
Mom is cleaning... she never rests, I'm convinced. Not even on Christmas Day. Taking care of us all. Christiana is modeling her new clothes without realizing it. She loves everything, so she has created an outfit so she can wear it all... :)
Puggers is looking under the tree, table, wrapping paper and everything else for food scraps... he's always hungry for our food!

Do You Hear What I Hear...
Beautiful piano music... rolling dice... dishes being put away... laughter... :) (and we can't ignore Pugsley... the dog who snores while awake)

I LOVE Christmas!


Here are a few reasons why I love Christmas...

Yummy baked goods
Hot drinks (like a Peppermint White Mocha from Starbucks)
Family and Friends
Feeling like, if only for a few minutes, that all is well in the world.
A reason to buy a cute new outfit for Christmas Eve Service at church

This is a short list, and hopefully doesn't need to contain Jesus' birth for you to know how important that is to me. Without His birth, I couln't make the list above.

Merry Christmas!! Hope it is full of blessings!



OK. I just decided I need to go public with my latest addiction... although I'm sure this will not come as a shock to anyone who knows me. And just for the record, this addiction will be added to a fairly long list of not-so-bad things to be addicted to :)

Just tonight, I went to the store to stock up on groceries. It's always a bad idea to shop when hungry, but I think I did pretty well... irrelevant. So anyway I got some really good pasta for dinner... but I couldn't hold out for that... I had to dig into... are you ready??

Salt and Vinegar Chips.

It's pathetic, I know... but I love them!

In case you are wondering, here are a few of the other things on my addictions list:

diet Coke... or all pop for that matter
Gilmore Girls
chocolate chip cookies
