Merry Christmas!!!

Yes, it's a late Christmas greeting but I haven't had time to get to my blog for a while. We spent 5 days at my mom's and saw all of my family plus Jason's parents who traveled from Maine. We had a great holiday with everyone. So many good presents and good food and good laughs. Here are a few highlights.

Bowling on Christmas Eve


Opening Stockings on Christmas Morning. Santa always brings M&M guys and chocolate gold coins. He's so smart.



The kids out of their pajamas and into their Christmas clothes! Why they chose to sit in front of my mom's front door on the floor is beyond me, it was hard enough to get them to stay still for a photo!


Me and my Mom wearing our new Christmas jewelry!


Kayla and Uncle Paul. Please don't ask me about his hair. I don't have any answers.


We 're-gifted' to Jason a singing, dancing George Bush doll. The look on his face when he discovered all it had to offer was priceless! And my sister's face, too!!


Sarah and Jason bought this wagon wheel at an auction in Maine this past fall for my mom. My mom has been wanting a wagon wheel for her garden for years, now. It was so fun to watch her open it!! Please excuse the lighting, it's awful. The sun was streaming through the window and the photo is not the best. I haven't figured out if I can fix it.


My sister and I NOT helping with dinner!!


Everyone!!! Full and happy after dinner! John just had to grab George Bush for the photo.


Wait...is that George trying to steal Jason's wine????


And then on the 26th, my sweet boy turned 7!!!! I can't believe he is 7, I had a bit of a freak out about it.



I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your families. I am getting the itch to clean up the house now and get all the stockings put away. I'm off work this week so I am also hoping to get some scrapping done!!! Make way for 2009!!!
