Have I mentioned...

How much I love my girls? When they are good... well, they are just so stinkin' adorable and they fill my heart. :) I can say this right now because they are being so sweet to each other right now, playing together with their dollhouse. Earlier today though, not so much.

Anyway, okay so the pathetic thing is that I have had my Christmas pictures resized and ready to post for a week now but I still haven't posted them here. I have posted most of these on facebook, but not all of them. I am so sleepy today. I need to eat better. I know this. We need groceries and I hate to go buy them. But I digress... that was just to let you know that I'm busy and tired and that is why I haven't posted these yet. :)

Christmas Eve I was planning to go to the candlelight service... well that didn't happen. Too much for this year. I let it go. Next year though, for sure. So we basically just hung out at home. We were going to make cookies but that didn't happen either. Luckily I had made some two nights before and we just threw those on a plate for Santa. He didn't eat them cause I messed them up, but the kids don't know that! We also set out treats for the reindeer. 9 of them, for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolf of course. Oh and of course I didn't find our Santa plate until after Christmas. Go figure.

Jenna drew a picture for Santa

Then Eric read Twas the Night Before Christmas

Then we tried to get a good picture of all three of them. They are too dark and I'm too lazy to fool with it too much right now, but you get the idea.

Then the kids went to bed and Eric and I did something, but I don't remember what.

Jenna was so cute, just so excited about Santa coming. She woke up in the middle of the night and asked me if Santa had come yet. It was just so sweet, you could just see the wonderment in her eyes. I loved it. I'll be sad when she's not a believer anymore. Can't I just fool her forever? :)

Okay, and I'm just gonna put all these pictures up and not comment on most of them cause there's too many.

and because I just loved them so much and only want to make them every day of my life from here on out... but of course can't :)

and I'm spent. I still have to go through my family get together photos. I'll do that this week.

love to all.


  1. we watched get smart on christmas eve... =)

  2. I can always count on you to make up for my horrific memory. :) <3

  3. I know it sounds like an excuse but you just had a new baby and it takes a while to get back into the swing of things with one of those around! I don't blame you and no one else should either! love you!

  4. It's so true! Those new babies, well, they take a lot out of you. I'm still struggling with settling into a routine. I keep saying I'm going to come up with a schedule and stick to it, but then life takes over and when I have the time to actually sit down and create a schedule I'm just too worn out to do it. Something needs to change though. I'm working on it. I'll get there. :)

  5. Those are great photos, Ash. Isn't it cool that there are such things as blogs now? What a handy way to journal and make scrapbooks quickly! Sure wish the Internet had been invented when I was younger.

  6. mom you sound like an old lady...

    cool to see the pictures. i don't see anything i got them though! did the package get there late or something cause of the snow?
