Christmas

I hope your Christmas was wonderful....did you get everything you wanted? We had a very nice holiday filled with family and smiles.




What was your favorite thing about your holiday? I think for me it was the calm. This year didn't seem rushed, or stressed. It was peaceful and calm, just happy times with the kids. I wish it hadn't gone so fast though, we would have liked to savor it a bit longer.




We definitely made a mess....



We had lots of fun....


And we ate.....



So now there is only one big mystery left this holiday season......


Where am I going to put all this stuff and who is going to come clean it up???

Goodness, what fun! It's always worth the mess, right? Just have to make sure any treasures don't get thrown out with all the paper and boxes. Happy happy! Stan

I am not looking forward to the clean up either,. But I will wait until Jan cause I am still having a party probably after New Year, postponed from 12/23 since I got sick. Your kids look like they had a blast, so nice to see their happy faces. I hope you and your family continue to enjoy this holiday season!...Christine

What a fun time you all had. Like you, the calm and peacefulness of this year has been my favorite. It just seems like there was such little stress and we all enjoyed our time together. :o)

Ps. I posted my favorite gift. :o) Actually, it was the only gift from my husband and I am super thankful. :o)

I always judge how much fun was had by how much mess was made! Great pictures--it's all worth it!

Ah yes -- we all need after Christmas elves --- don't we?

Melissa Miller said...

LOL! Michelle what adorable children you have.

Happy New Year! :)

Sunshine said...

That is my same question!

Hi Michelle! Like you, I enjoyed the peaceful calm of this Christmas. Dinner on Christmas Eve with loved ones, brunch on Christmas Day .... followed by (of all things) a movie in a crowded theater ... 'It's Complicated' which we enjoyed!

Hi Michelle,
I'm glad you enjoyed Christmas with your family so much. I had a great day, too. Our daughter and SIL came around 11:30 am and didn't leave until after 9pm. It was great having them here for a long day. We wished it didn't end!

Had a great Christmas also. Just like you I am now looking at a Zhu Zhu pet tunnel thing and also wondering where it all is going to go.

Theresa said...

Oh my, it went fast for us too! We also made a big mess but fortunately it was at my Daughter's house! Perhaps we should start the actual celebrating next year the first of December and celebrate all month:) Have a blessed evening dear friend!

We have the same zhu zhu village floating around also - looks like your puppy was enjoying it - I also wonder the same thing - where to put it all.

Great post....
If the answer to your question is someone other than you, you will have a post how to motivate others to clean up the Christmas mess:-)
