The Post of Christmas Past

Well, the Christmas season has come and gone without a single post from me.
(Although, technically it's still the 9th day of Christmas!)
Christmas on a budget means over 35 homemade Christmas presents from this little blogger (if I can even call myself that!), and that means zero time to keep you updated on our family's happenings. So my sweet family and friends will have to catch up on what we've been up to all at once in this picture-loaded post! I'll try to keep my comments to a minimum, so as to limit the inevitable overload you are about to experience....

Christmas is just so fun...

Welcome to our Christmassy home...

Andrea gave us this lovely pillow to add charm to my entryway.
I love early Christmas presents...

It really is a wonderful life!

And it was a wonderful Christmas morning. Asher was so excited about it that he wouldn't go to bed the night before...
I can't blame him. There's something magical about Christmas morning!

Asher had to wait upstairs until he heard the choo-choo train chugging around the track, his cue to rush down and take in the sight!
(The train is a tradition carried over from my childhood... so many lovely memories!)

It was somebody's first Christmas! I think he enjoyed it...

After celebrating Christmas at home, we headed to Grammie's house, where the real fun happens. (With 10 cousins in one room, it doesn't get more fun than that!!)
Here they are opening their presents from Grammie and Grandpa...

Sleeping bags!
Here's Asher with one of his very best friends, his cousin Ian Jude.
Ever since we left, he has not stopped talking about, "Tackle Jude! 1-2-3 tackle Jude!!!"

We left Lynchburg and rang in the New Year back home. We tried to eat out at Outback with a gift card we got for Christmas (Thanks, Mom and Dad!) but with two crying babies in the back seat and the news of a 70 minute wait, we ended up at Wendy's. It was definitely the best choice! Asher got the best kid's meal toy ever! A wind up train that rolls around a little track. He was beyond excited!

The train track went with us to Starbucks for treats.
(Yes, that's whipped cream on Asher's upper lip. He got a treat, too!)

We were all a little more smiley after dinner and dessert!

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
