Merry Christmas Eve

We're spending Christmas at home this year. It's going to be quiet. And we're going to miss being with our extended family. But it's what we have to do.

Elli is a trooper. Instead of being sad that she won't see her cousins, aunts and uncles, and grand parents, she's looking forward to having Santa come to her house this year.

I'm sure we'll have a SKYPE session or two to keep in touch. Because she's going to quickly realize at about 10am tomorrow that there is no one to play with and she's boooooooored. I better touch base with some of our friends that will be in town. I could have one cranky little monkey on my hands.

I hope you'll have a holiday weekend full of family, laughs and good food.

That's what we plan on doing. Even if it's only the three of us.

Painting ornaments with friends.

Decorating the tree.

The annual Christmas tree skirt dance.

The stockings are hung.

That's it. Time to enjoy the day and get ready for tomorrow.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.


  1. Mark, Clay & I did the turkey-day feast at home and it was nice nt to run and be stressed. I know you'll miss everyone but, the skyping is a great idea. Love the painting of ornaments, and your awesome framed photos on the mantle!

    Happy, Happy!!

  2. Oooooh love those paintable wooden tree puzzles! Where'd you find those?

  3. We got the puzzles at Michael's. They had a BUNCH of really cute wooden and ceramic ornaments to paint.


Thanks for your feedback!
