For a variety of reasons, it was a struggle getting into the holiday spirit this year. At first, everything seemed to be such a chore. We eased into the holiday spirit with his and hers Lego Advent calendars (City for me and Star Wars for him). The decorations were soon pulled out from storage, but the boxes remained untouched, as Susie Q's recent mischievous misdeeds had us wondering whether it would be safe to even put up a Christmas tree this year?!? Thanks to the magic of an ex-pen, the Christmas tree went up and stayed up as my two girls were total angels! What Christmas season is complete without some homemade Irish Cream! Mmmm!
|Deck the Halls!|
|Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree!|
|Santa's Workshop and Special Elves|
|Hippie Holidays from Susie Q, Panda, my mother, brother, his canine companion Helix and Doug!!|
|Santa Claus is Coming to Town! Ketchup, Ketchup and more Ketchup for Doug!|
And I received a fun assortment of quilting fabrics and notions...

All in all, we survived this Christmas/Holiday season...and have 360+ days to start preparing more for next year's festivities!!
